Holiday Market Shopping Extravaganza!!!!

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

The Asheville Art Museum hosts its annual Holiday Shopping Extravaganza! in the Pack Place Community Gallery (Pack Place off Biltmore Ave.) from November 17th to the 20th.

I was lucky enough to peruse the wares early today and I have to say that I will have a difficult time not buying everything….so many goodies….

But, I will just let the pictures talk. Most of the wares are handmade by local artists and thus, one of a kind! Buy local and artsy this holiday season and make your friends and loved ones think you are the best gift giver in the world.

Plus, an extra bonus- Museum Members get 20% off on Friday November 20th. That means on everything that you purchase at the Market! Not a Member? You should join! Not only do you get the discount but you get to visit the Museum for free at any time during the year and take part in our great film screenings, artist lectures, curatorial talks….etc. Fun, exciting, and free!

Handmade journals and calendars, homemade soaps and teas, ornaments, gorgeous jewelry, hand knit scarves, holiday cards….

Four of our region’s talented authors will be signing books during the Market!
Tim Barnwell, Sue Millions, Anna Fariello, and Andrea Clark

Cider, craft demos, cocktails, cookies…And you can get it all gift wrapped on the spot by our fantastic volunteers!
