Cold weather, warm feelings

Houghton Winter Market allows some holiday shoppers reprieve from the web

The Municipal Parking Deck was closed to traffic, but open for business on Dec. 12 for shoppers to get a chance at the crafts and produce unavailable from craft shows this year. Shops along the street were also open, and Santa Claus also made an appearance with the Houghton Fire Department.
Sherry Sandretto, from Calumet, usually does about three shows, but only came to the Winter Market this year. “I wish they had some heat in here,” she said. “But this is a nice idea.
Katie Johnson brought her son Tommy to the Market on his first birthday. “It’s nice to have the joy of Christmas and being able to shop locally,” she said.
