Guild Artists’ Holiday Sale
Saturday, December 10, 2011 10am – 4pm
Folk Art Center (Asheville)
Join us for the Guild Artists’ Holiday Sale at the Folk Art Center on December 10. Members of the Southern Highland Craft Guild will be on hand in the center’s auditorium to sell select work 10-50% off retail.
 The sale is an excellent opportunity for the artist to liquidate overstocks and 2010 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. It also provides an exciting, festive alternative to mall and big box import shopping. Choose from a variety of gift items including ceramics, jewelry, fiber, paper, glass and wood. 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.

 The Folk Art Center is located at Milepost 382 on the Blue Ridge Parkway in east Asheville. For more information, call 298-7928 or visit www.craftguild.org.
