Holiday Shopping Just Got Better!

Friday, November 5, 2010

From the blog archives: November 2010

With colder weather approaching and the fading of the colorful leaves, the Holidays are now on everyone’s minds. But instead of subjecting yourself to crowded malls and last minute shopping, you should consider attending this year’s Holiday Market at the Asheville Art Museum!

As with every year, Museum Shop workers have gathered tons of great products from local artists and artisans. We have pottery, beautiful jewelry, wood-turned bowls, candles and so much more! We will also have several book signings by local authors like Jennifer Lipsey, Leo Monohan, and Katie Boyette. Not to mention all of the holiday music, treats, refreshments and beer kegs! It’s not just a shopping extravaganza, it’s a holiday PARTY!

The Holiday Market begins on Tuesday, November 16 and will run through Sunday, November 21. That’s six full days of party and shopping opportunities! On the final day, November 21, we will also have a SunTrust Sunday which means FREE admission to the Museum AND a silent auction where you can bid on some more awesome local products. Plus you will get a chance to meet all of the artists who participated in the Market. Thanks so much to SunTrust Bank for sponsoring this great day!

So, now that you’re pumped, tell all your friends about this great event! You will not only be helping out your favorite museum 🙂 but also a lot of local artists! This is a great way to score some unique gifts for your loved ones.

Call us if you have any questions or would like to donate something to our silent auction! 828.253.3227
