Holiday Open House

Why is
Holiday Open House
so Unique?

  • If the North Pole was in Pittsburgh
    our artists would be the hardworking, talented elves that have been working all year to share their handmade products with you!

  • Our Christmas Shop
    is curated especially for lovers of unique, handmade gifts. It takes over the space we use for classes. We work with our artists year round to develop their products for you! It opens at the start of our Holiday Open House!

  • Ornament Extravaganza
    recognizes the fact that ornaments become heirlooms. Handmade things are saved and passed down from generation to generation. We have the largest collection of handmade ornaments in town and they start selling each year at our Holiday Open House!

  • Goodie Bags
    are given to 100 customers during the holiday season. 50 are distributed at our Holiday Open House (10 on Friday and 40 on Saturday) and 50 on Small Business Saturday when you spend $50 (one per person). They are only available until they are all given away. They have merchandise, coupons and any other goodies we can find to make them special.

  • Family Crafts
    will take place this year in Santa’s Workshop. This is a special house in the back of our space where Santa stays when he visits. All Ages can make Family Crafts and the suggested donation is $5 per person.

  • Santa
    will be visiting on Saturday, November 13th from 12-3 pm in Santa’s Workshop (behind Artsmiths)! It is free to sit on his lap and take a picture or video.
