Sedona AZ (October 12, 2012) – The gift-giving holiday season is fast upon us all. What do we do for those on our list who have everything? You may want to check out the Arts and Crafts Sale at the Sedona Heritage Museum.
The Arts and Crafts Sale is Saturday only, October 20, at the uptown Sedona museum apple packing shed in historic Jordan Park. Doors are open from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for an old-fashioned arts and crafts show like you remember them to be.
All items are hand-made. The artist or crafts worker sits behind each table to personally tell you how their pieces are made, where they find unusual materials or what inspires them. Many of these people only do this show or a very limited number of other shows which makes the items unusual and uncommon, handmade and one-of-a-kind.
At this show you will find ceramics, fine art, weavings, wood carvings and other wood art pieces, quilts and home decor items of all kinds. Jewelers will show beaded, fused glass, and other original materials made into jewelry.
Beautiful wearable art includes clothing, scarves, and accessories. Gift items include greeting cards, candles, hand-crafted soaps and lotions, items for pets, and many, many other choices.
This year, chair massage will be a feature of the show from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. with Lew Turano providing live music from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the grounds.
This show has matured over the years to about 50 vendors, sold-out vendor space, and a large attendance. The Sedona Community Center will be serving lunch on site, so your lunch purchase benefits another local non-profit.
In addition to the arts and crafts booths, the Sedona Heritage Museum will hold a bake sale of only home-made goodies from 9:00 a.m. until they are all gone! The bake sale proceeds benefit the Museum. The Museum Gift Shop will also be open for holiday shopping, specializing in locally made items, books, and movies made in Sedona.
