While visions of handcrafted gifts danced in the air !

The year’s most anticipated party is coming up here at Arrow Creative! Join us Thursday, November 16th from 5:30pm to 8:00pm to kick start our Holiday Bazaar. Alongside enchanting art you'll find delicious drinks from Grind City Brewing and Old Dominick, cupcakes from Frost, snacks from Railgarten and live music by Alexis Jade. What better way to get into the holiday spirit than by shopping for local art with a glass of wine in hand?

Holiday Bazaar is a beloved tradition here in Memphis. For the last 70 years, Memphians have piled into the warm halls of first MCA, and later, Arrow Creative, to peruse the art-decked walls, shelves, and counters. With art from over 100 local artists adorning every corner of the building, the space comes alive with creativity and holiday cheer. What makes this event stand out from the standard holiday aisles of Target is the uniqueness that each piece carries. You see, every single thing you lay eyes on at Holiday Bazaar is locally made.

It goes without saying that Memphis is a hub of creativity in the South. From our blues music to our city murals, you can’t go anywhere in Memphis without admiring our creative spirit. At Arrow, we aim to connect consumers who love local art to those amazing Memphis creatives who make it happen. When you attend First Dibs, you not only help support Arrow and our mission to make art accessible to our community, you also directly support the local creative entrepreneurs you buy from. The holidays are about giving, and there's no better way to give than by shopping locally. Everyone on your list receives a one of a kind, handcrafted gift, and each purchase you make goes back into the Memphis creative economy helping it continue to thrive! So, join us this holiday season as we celebrate the holidays by keeping Memphis creative!
