Shop local at Artisan Market

ENCINITAS — A special Artisan Market will offer some unusual and interesting gift ideas in downtown Encinitas this holiday season. Supporter of the small local artist, Coast Hwy Traders will be holding the holiday market from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dec. 21 at 530 S. Coast Highway 101.

This market will feature three local artists — Linda Deremo, Udo Wahn and Carmelita Jimenez.

Deremo, a Native American jewelry artist, uses natural gemstones and shells, including turquoise, coral, spiny oyster, lapis, along with silver.

Del Mar physician Wahn writes children‘s books to capture the aloha spirit and the love and conservation of the ocean in every child. He is the author of the “Cabo and Coral” series and “For the Sake of Hugh Manatee.”

Jimenez creates quilts that reflect her Mexican heritage and along with Deremo and Wahn, is not normally found at Coast Hwy Traders. To make the holiday even easier, there will be free gift-wrap that day and holiday beverages.
