The Holiday Bazaar keeps artists busy for weeks in advance. We are the elves of the art world, working away in our studios, dreaming up new, wonderful and affordable one-of-a-kind gifts for YOU to share with friends and family. This year we add the first of the hand-crafted toys for children made of clay. Artists have made for you:
Jewelry (Chain Maille is back in the gallery) of all kinds, fused glass ornaments, pottery, Kwanzaa Gifts, Christmas Gifts, Hanukah Gifts, Solstice Gifts. There is clothing, hand painted scarves, beads, fish ornaments, turtle rattles, leather bracelets, Ankhs of all kinds. There are mugs and bowls and charms. There are paintings on tables and paintings on walls.
In fact: Come in on opening night, and, if we don’t have what you want or need, we have lots of time to make it for you. We are, after all, working artist elves.
Lots of good nibbles and wine on opening night.

The Vendor Brigade will be out in full force for two Sundays during December. Look for Artists, Jewelry, Clothing, Specialty Vendors, and Lots of Good Food. The more food you come and taste, the greater variety we will draw in Vendors. Special treat is delightful Khakilah Ali, wife of the late Mohammed Ali, who will sign autographed pictures of them, as she sells her wares for charity. Vendors are in front of the gallery thanks to Cynthia Simmons of Belles Creations.
