The Edgebrook Center is thrilled to announce its Last-Minute holiday pop-up is back again at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10.

The Last-Minute Market is a free, indoor arts and crafts pop-up event happening just two weeks before Christmas. Local artists, crafters, and bakers offer last-minute gift options while giving shoppers the convenience and excitement of shopping, dining, and  supporting local businesses this holiday season.

"This is the last major arts and crafts fair of the season. And what's better than crossing off you shopping list with locally made and unique items? You'll be able to find something for everyone and keep your money right here in the community," said Sandy Dingus, Edgebrook's marketing and events coordinator.


Attendees can find some of the favorite market vendors indoors in five of Edgebrook's open storefronts.

Featured items include:

  • Gift Baskets
  • Baked Goods
  • Jewelry
  • Doll clothes
  • Hand-drawn & lettered signs
  • Macramé
  • Acrylic paintings
  • Swedish Inspired Woodcrafts
  • Ornaments
  • Dog Treats
  • Natural Skincare

While at the Last-Minute Market, shoppers are encouraged to visit other Edgebrook merchants, many of whom feature Rockford original items and services including clothing, accessories, restaurants, specialty foods, personal training, hair and nail care, and more. Gifts and gift cards can be purchased throughout the mall, and convienent shipping is available at the Postal Shoppe to help finish holiday errands.
