Guild Artists' Holiday Sale

Join us for the Guild Artists’ Holiday Sale at the Folk Art Center on December 7 and again on December 14. Members of the Southern Highland Craft Guild will be on hand in the center’s auditorium on these two Saturdays to sell select work 10-50% off retail.
The sale is an excellent opportunity for the artist to liquidate overstocks and 2013 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.
Over 70 artists will be participating over the course of the two sales, with a different group of artists each weekend – so plan on coming to both for best selection!
While at the Folk Art Center, visitors can be inspired by three galleries showcasing the work of current Guild members and collections from the Guild’s history. They can also shop at Allanstand Craft Shop, the nation’s oldest craft gallery, where they will find gifts for everyone on their list.
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.
