Gem City Made Craft Show

We visited the Gem City Made craft show on May 5th, held at the Beavercreek Nazarene Church. There were a ton of vendors, with amazing handmade products from glasswork and woodwork to jewelry and bags, to pet accessories, wreaths, and crochet!

This year was only the second year for Gem City Made, but Beavercreek Nazarene has been holding a Holiday Bazaar every November for over 25 years! We’ll make sure to post details about the Holiday Bazaar before the event in early November.
