Sedona AZ (October 11, 2017) – 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 21 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, quilted items, ceramics, wood art pieces, and home and garden decor items of all kinds. Jewelers will show Native American, and beaded, fused glass, gemstones, and other original materials made into jewelry. There will be beautiful wearable art, accessories and items for children. Ornaments, gourd art, woven baskets, photography, bird houses and feeders, metal art, whimsical robots and gifts galore like, greeting cards, hand-crafted soaps & lotions, essential oils and many, many other choices round out the extensive selection. A Henna artist will be available for henna body art and body “jewelry”.
This show has matured over the years to about 45 vendors, sold-out vendor space, and a large attendance. Admission to the sale and Museum are free on this day.
The Sedona Community Center will be serving lunch on site including a vegetarian option, 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! These proceeds benefit the Museum. The Museum Gift Shop will also be open for holiday shopping, and will be hosting a clearance sale.
