This show is a win-win no matter how you slice it. 4% of all sales goes to the ArtWing and the Ashland School District. The ArtWing continues in its mission to create affordable artist studios, and enhance the art education realm in the city of Ashland. The ArtWing has been in existence for 13 years and continues to be a model for use of public space. Briscoe School and the playground have been maintained as public space while utilizing the space for art and continued education.
When you spend your hard earned dollars at the Holiday Market you are putting money directly into the hands of your friends and neighbors who, in turn, use that money locally to buy groceries, necessities, and the occasional meal out or entertainment. Money spent directly, locally is typically spent over and over an average of 7 times in the local economy. Compare that to buying from Amazon. Your money goes out of the local system and does not recycle within the Ashland area. Spread your money around, spend your money locally as often as you can. It feels good to know your purchasing power is empowering your local economy.
