Shadows-on-the-Teche Christmas Craft Market
NEW IBERIA, La. --- The Shadows-on-the-Teche is hosting a craft market just in time to finish your holiday shopping! The Shadows Christmas Craft Market will take place in the Shadows gardens on Sat., Dec. 7 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Vendors from around Louisiana will display and sell their original work. From crochet to children’s clothing, to wooden bowls and holiday decor, to fine art and a selection of jewelry, you’re sure to find that missing gift for your holiday list.

Admission to the fair is $5 per person (12 and older) and $3 for children (ages 6-11), and includes a special “Merry-Making Season” tour of the Shadows. Holiday decorations and the scent of the Christmas fill the rooms on this special tour. Raffle tickets will be sold to win items donated by the vendors.

In addition to the arts and crafts, food and dessert vendors will offer tempting choices. Grab your Christmas list and come enjoy the day with your family and friends while supporting local artists, craftsmen, and the Shadows-on-the-Teche!
