If you are in the South Central Pennsylvania area, this post is for you!
In a little over a month, I will be participating in the craft show I look forward to all year. This show includes some of the best artisans in the Lititz area and is a lot of fun, too.
The name of the show is the Lititz Artisans’ Porchwalk. It features juried artisans and craftsmen on display at homes throughout the town of Lititz, PA. This show is not your average craft show because the artisans are spread out all over town. There are about six or seven artisans per location and there are six locations total. I suppose you could walk from one location to the next if you felt up to it, but I would suggest driving to a few of them so you don’t wear yourself out.
I wish I could walk around and explore the other properties because it’s fun to see the mix of styles and creativity. There is folk art, pottery, paintings, wood carvings, textiles, hand-blown glass, jewelry and much more. Many of them are not what you typically see at the regular craft shows.
Bonus: It’s free! No tickets are required for this craft show.
If you have never been to Lititz, I recommend taking a trip the weekend of October 12 and 13. It’s a beautiful town with locally owned shops lining the streets. If you come during this weekend, the weather is usually perfect, not too hot and hot too cold. Just right for exploring town by foot.
Here are the details:
What: Lititz Artisans’ Porchwalk
When: Friday and Saturday, October 12 & 13, 2012
Time: 10 AM – 5 PM both days
Where: Throughout the town of Lititz, PA
Please check the website for exact location addresses.
It might seem early, but this show is a great opportunity to find one-of-a-kind holiday gifts and avoid the shopping crowds later.
Mark your calendar now! I’m looking forward to seeing you!
