This weekend is a great time to get an early start on your holiday shopping. After all, Thanksgiving is a week later than usual, thus there’s one less week before Christmas. Plus, the type of shopping we’re talking about doesn’t involve a trip to the mall. This weekend, the MAC hosts Yuletide, the 34th annual fine arts and crafts fair hosted by and benefiting the Spokane Art School, the newly reincarnated arts education nonprofit. Items for sale run the gamut from one-of-a-kind ceramics to handmade jewelry and wearable fiber art, all created by artists based right here in the Inland Northwest. It’s a win-win: support local artisans and check people off your gift-buying list.
