Yuletide Market Brings Customers to Local Makers

About 10 artists filled Zen Eye Care.

DULUTH, Minn.- Local artisans and makers got to sell their items in an unlikely space: Zen Eye Care on London Road hosted a Yuletide Market Friday.

About 10 artists displayed everything from hats and mittens to jewelry and stationary.

This gave vendors a chance to sell their goods outside of a festival or outdoor market.

“I think it’s important for people to show off their art and their crafts and they don’t really have a venue to do that as often,” said owner of Zen Eye Care Eric Bohjanen.

“So we’re providing a space for them. And it’s important to us. It makes us feel like the community is more close knit and together”

Proceeds from the market went to local non-profit Project Joy.
