There is no need to be concerned about availability of gifts for the holidays as well as the higher prices. The RiverArts Holiday Show and Sale offers hand-made gifts at affordable prices created by local artists and artisans. The show will run through December 31.
A broad range of gifts will surely bring joy to those special in your life, from grandparents to grandchildren and other special family members and friends. Items include holiday décor, ornaments, wreaths, cards, fine art, including photography, practical and decorative pieces in clay and in wood, jewelry, knitted wear, silk scarves, quilts and paper art. As items typically sell quickly, they are replenished. In previous years, there have been over 1,000 items for sale and is also expected this year. Many of RiverArts most popular artists are returning but also look for work by artists new to the show.
The show will be held at RiverArts, located at 315 High Street, Suite 106. Important dates and times include:
First Friday, December 3 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
