The next couple of weeks will be a hustle for us; we’ll no doubt be roaming from store to store, searching for that perfect gift for our significant others. Here’s an idea, though: Why not skip the mall and head to the 20th Anniversary Siesta Key Craft Festival this Saturday and Sunday 10-5 at the beautiful Siesta Key Village in Sarasota, Florida? With over 100 crafters and artists sharing their exciting works with the audiences who visit our shows every weekend, we’re absolutely certain that you’ll find something lovely for your significant other.

Why Give Handmade?

So, why choose something handmade rather than just another store trinket to show your sweetie that you care? Well, American Craft Endeavors prides itself in sharing the works of artists who are passionate about their handcrafted and homemade creations. They put a lot of love and care into their pieces, works of art and even their recipes. There is something really special about giving something to someone you love that represents the level of dedication and care invested in something beautiful. What a lovely message to send your Valentine this year, right?

Getting your spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend or even your little ones, a gift that was crafted especially for someone who would love it is a powerful statement. Just as the piece you’ve gifted is unique and one of a kind, so is the recipient of the gift. What a bold and beautiful statement to make!

This isn’t about just jewelry and candy, either. If your loved one is an art collector, there’s nothing more compelling than giving them something interesting by an artist they love, or even by an artist they’ve never heard of before. American Craft Endeavors crafters are handpicked from a large group of applicants — some of them are award-winning veterans in their respective medium or industry, while others are sublimely talented crafters finally getting the chance to showcase their work in an open venue with lots of exposure to new admirers.
