Craft Guild members plan December saleWritten by Admin
The Southern Highland Craft Guild’s holiday sale at the Folk Art Center will be held Dec. 3 and Dec. 10. Members of the Southern Highland Craft Guild will be on hand in the center’s auditorium on these two Saturdays to sell select work at 10 to 50 percent discounts.
The sale is an excellent opportunity for the artist to liquidate overstocks and 2011 items, try out new techniques, and sell studio seconds. For the customer, the sale means great deals for holiday shopping and a chance to connect with the craftsperson.
Buying from artists supports the local economy and promotes the mission of the Guild which is “bringing together the crafts and craftspeople of the Southern Highlands for the benefit of shared resources, education, marketing and conservation.”
More than 70 artists will be participating over the course of the two sales, with a different group of artists each weekend – so plan on coming to both for best selection.
The Folk Art Center is located at Milepost 382 on the Blue Ridge Parkway in east Asheville.
