WAUSAU - December brings plenty of holiday markets to shop at.

There are a lot of handmade items and Christmas treats to go around.

Saturday's Makers Market in Wausau provided just that but did things a little bit differently.

They tried to reach a younger demographic and offer them new styles and trends from throughout Wisconsin.

"A lot of the makers here are a little bit more modern, kind of catchy items that I would like to have in my own home and people my age would like to have, too," said co-founder Alex Eichten.

This is their fourth event in the Wausau area.

She said more 2,000 people came out to shop.

"It's the Field of Dreams moment, as I like to call it," Chariton said.

Her group's months of hard work all led up to Friday night: the grand opening of the Lights of the Northwoods year two at 5 p.m.  The show expanded from one weekend to two, with lights displays Friday through Sunday from 5 p.m. - 9 p.m.
