Lincoln Park holiday market bringing local shops & people together
Over 20 local businesses worked together to host the Lincoln Park holiday market on December 9. The event brought people a fun-filled day with unique gifts, and holiday happenings throughout, one of Duluth’s most vibrant neighborhoods.
Two Loons Gallery & Boutique had hourly giveaways, free gifts, along with their great deals. Enger Lofts meanwhile hosted artists, small maker pop ups, and music inside 190° Coffee and Tea.
The festivities also continued into with events like Bent Paddle Brewing Co.’s Holly Jolly Get Down and Ugly Sweater Party.
Maddy Cortes, the general manager of the Dovetail Café and Marketplace said the turnout Saturday morning was pretty wild.
“I think it’s also super nice to have it be all throughout Lincoln Park,” Cortes said. “I know there’s pop up venues all over Lincoln Park and it’s a nice area for people to come walk around and see businesses we haven’t seen before or vendors they haven’t seen.”
Cortes also said there was 11 different local vendors from the Duluth areas selling their craft at the Lincoln Park Holiday Market.
“We’re in conjunction with the folk school,” Cortes said. “We like to have like a lot of our goods handcrafted from like our food to our drinks to any classes we have.”
Many businesses had donating sites for the LNPK Supply Drive benefiting the CHUM Warming House & Lincoln Park Middle School.
Attendees are encouraged to donate shampoo and conditioner, and individually packaged foods. Also warm clothing items including winter boots, snow pants, socks, and warm mittens/gloves.
Donations can be dropped off at participating Lincoln Park businesses through December 19.
