Be sure to look up as you’re holiday shopping this month!

Catch these custom-designed gift installations by Market artists throughout the arcade and Desimone Bridge.

‘Tis the season for sharing special memories and exchanging thoughtful momentos! Here at Pike Place Market our craftspeople are the heart of uniquely handmade gift-giving.

Our Daystall team recruited three Market artists to enliven our shopping thoroughfares, celebrate the diverse talents of our local arts community, and enhance the festive gifting atmosphere of the Market this holiday season.

Read on to learn more about each supersized present!

Kate Endle

Illustrator Kate Endle brings colorful joy and whimsy into every piece she creates. Her signature style developed over a 25-year career is reflected in the vibrant swathes of candy-colored bands that fill her gift box designs.

Shop anywhere in the Crafts Market to receive the official Pike Place Market holiday button cleverly featuring these gift boxes.

Be sure to meet Kate next week as she leads the first day of Crafty’s Handmade HoliDAYS series on Monday, Dec. 19, 11am –  2pm.

Bring the kids to enjoy fun ornament painting and holiday card coloring activities!

Carrie Narducci

Designer and printmaker Carrie Narducci, owner of Pattern & Posy, is known for her custom block-printed textiles. Her gift boxes layer texture and pattern to create hand-drawn compositions as unique as her linens.

Every year, Carrie releases a limited-edition design curated just for the holiday season. Melding star and snowflake, this year’s 12-pointed design in a cool pool of wintery blue is the star of the show on her gift box. Shop her kitchen linens to offer a statement piece for any table!


Ernesto Ybarra

Painting with bold energy and passion, artist Ernesto Ybarra is driven by intuition and zero hesitation in crafting his works. Layer upon layer of vividly swirling lines, dots, and brushstrokes bring an electric pop to the gift boxes he’s designed.

This project offered an open-ended vision, with a simple instruction to paint a concept that represents entirely himself. Find bold canvases and prints to brighten your walls at his table in the Crafts Market!
