Hover Craft and its local, handmade goods return to Milwaukee this weekend

One of Milwaukee's most beloved local shopping traditions is back this weekend. The maker market Hover Craft will return to the Historic Pritzlaff Building for its 12th year on Sunday, Dec. 5, with more than 100 artists, painters, designers and crafters set to sell their goods.

This year's vendors are a typically eclectic bunch, and will be selling wares ranging from jewelry, goat soaps, wind catchers, maps, mittens, bath soaks, candles, sweets, bird houses, Christmas ornaments and candles. If you want a sneak peak, Hover Craft has been teasing some of this year's goods for the last few weeks on its Facebook page.

Because of COVID-19, the event will look a little different this year. Guest are asked to wear masks while shopping. Organizers have also introduced a timed-ticket entry system, which will limit attendance.

The fair runs from noon to 6 p.m.; currently tickets are still available for the 4:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. entry times.
