Nadia Bond from the Potters Guild says, “I do all of my holiday shopping at the sale because in addition to the pleasant shopping experience, people on my gift list always value a handcrafted gift much more than something commercially manufactured. Gifts I buy at the Holiday Sale become treasured keepsakes.”

Community Arts Center is a non-profit institution offering classes in visual arts year round. A portion of sales from this event support on-site and outreach programming by the Arts Center.
