Museum’s Fall Arts & Crafts Sale
Sedona AZ (October 5, 2011) – 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 this weekend’s Fall Arts & Crafts Sale at the Sedona Heritage Museum. The show is Saturday only, October 15 at the Museum in Uptown Sedona. Doors are open from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The show will be set up in the historic Jordan apple packing shed and surrounding park.
This show is an old-fashioned arts and crafts show like you remember them to be. All items are hand-made. The artist or craftsman sits behind each table to personally tell you how they make their pieces, where they find their unusual materials or what inspires them. Many of these people only do this show or a very limited number of other shows making their items unusual and uncommon. They will have a large variety of handmade and one-of-a-kind offerings.
At this show you will find fine art, ceramics, weavings, wood carvings and other wood art pieces, and 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. Gifts galore including greeting cards, candles, hand-crafted soaps & lotions, and many, many other choices. Not all vendors take credit cards or out of town checks, so plan to bring cash if possible.
This year, chair massage will be a feature of the show from 11 a.m.-2 p.m..
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 the grounds, so your lunch purchase benefits another local non-profit. In addition to the arts and crafts booths, the Museum will hold a bake sale of only home-made goodies from 9:00 am until they are all gone! The Museum’s restoration committee will host a tool sale. Both these tables’ proceeds benefit the Museum. The Museum Gift Shop will also be open for holiday shopping, specializing in locally made items plus movies made in Sedona and books.
