This event provides a vast array of gift choices and decorative items. From hand-thrown ceramics to one-of-a-kind jewelry to custom-sewn textiles to custom crafted leather goods – the Holiday Marketplace is one-stop shopping for even the most difficult-to-buy-for person on your holiday list. From fine art to folk art, there will be delightful stocking stuffers, herbal products, locally-produced olive oil and honey, scented soaps and candles and much more. This event would not be complete without the offerings of the ever-popular Garden Guild crafters and their uniquely whimsical pieces lovingly created using all-natural materials including their just-launched line of native bay leaf wreaths.
