Everywhere I look, I see advertisements and postcards for holiday sales. In addition to the big box retailers, department stores and specialty stores, there are many fine arts and crafts sales taking place in the next week.
If you’re looking to make it a handmade holiday this year, here are a few places to shop for artful gifts for everyone on your list:
Community Arts Center – 414 Plush Mill Road, Wallingford, PA – December 1 – 8 The Best Holiday Sale Ever includes hand crafted items in functional and decorative ceramic, glass, paintings, clothing, fiber art, jewelry, paper mache, collage, mixed media, flowers, handbags, wood, and more from over 57 artists.
I already shopped here and not only did I find gifts for family and friends, I bought a few things for myself too!
Open House & Studio Sale – Clay and Paintings – Suzanne Kent & Michael Dutcher – 415 West Market Street, West Chester, PA – December 8, 9 & 15- Features a variety of decorative ceramics by Kent and acrylic paintings Dutcher. One stop shopping for two great artists.
Holiday Fine Craft Sale at Main Line Art Center – 746 Panmure Road, Haverford, PA – Through December 9th – Shop and Sip signature cocktails tonight from 6-8 while enjoying artist demos. I think this is a great idea! You can never have too much holiday cheer!
These sales are great because they allow you to support community artists and shop for one-of-a-kind pieces from a variety of artists all in one place.
If you’re anything like me, with so much to choose from, you’ll want to by one of everything!
