The Arts Council Christmas Bazaar opens Saturday, December 4th, 5PM-9PM, UPSTAIRS in the Arts Council building on the NW corner of the Lamar Square. Come visit us after the parade (or even before)! This is not like any ho-hum “Home for the Holidays” Arts Council event you’ve seen before. It’s an all-local, handmade, ultra-cool “mini-mall” with three separate stores to choose from. The Handmade Shop features stunning (and affordable!!!) jewelry by Vickie Clark and Fern Brown, “Mo-Chocolate” gourmet cookie mixes and candy’s by Janet Dermott, Queen’s Family Farm’s fabulous dips, jams, candied nuts, Pam Allen’s local honey, plus wreaths, scarves, holiday decor, etc etc etc! Wow! Store #2 is a “re-sell-it” shop featuring high quality, gently used, items. We’ve got doll house furniture, hand-carved African masks from the Ivory Coast, beautiful framed art, books, movies, clothes, dishes, just tons of amazing stuff and more coming in every day. Last but not least, store #3 is Peaceacre – you all know who that is! Handmade soaps, scrubs, lotion bars, spa salt bars, gift sets, and other natural bath and body care products. Peaceacre has added imported Bohemian cloth purses, lace scarves, and all kinds of new goodies just for this Bazaar! And the best part is, after Saturday, all three stores will be open every Thursday and Friday from Noon to 6PM, and Saturdays from 9AM-2PM though December 18th!

But wait, there’s more! The amazing Kristie Boswell of Creatively Designed Photography will be doing Christmas portraits. Visit her Facebook page for details – http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/profile.php?id=100001893811571

There will be frequent drawings for gift baskets, jewelry and other “door prizes.” Check back for details!
