After our all-virtual event last year, we are thrilled to be hosting our annual GIFTY Craft Show & Open House in person this holiday season. Join us for three days of the best shopping in the Bay Area.
This has been an especially challenging year for makers and small businesses. So we knew it was important to continue our 17-year-long tradition of GIFTY, our annual craft show. But this year, for the first time, GIFTY is going virtual. Starting November 9, we'll be highlighting over 80 Bay Area makers and small businesses selling things like original jewelry, handcrafted soaps, sculpted glassware, and so much more.
Across the Bay Area, public health officials are encouraging businesses to cancel or postpone non-essential public gatherings due to the risk of community spread of Covid-19 Coronavirus. For this reason, The Crucible is postponing our upcoming Spring Open House, originally planned for Saturday, March 21.
Soirée is The Crucible’s once-a-year glittering fundraising event that raises more than $150,000 to fund scholarships and support for our industrial arts education programs.
