The Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design educates hundreds of children and adults in the glass, ceramics and jewelry making arts all year long. Once a year those students and their teachers sell their best stuff during an outdoor market. It's a great place to find one-of-a-kind mugs, plates, sculptural elements and other hand-made goods at very reasonable prices. Take full advantage of the Student & Faculty Sale
