Cville Holiday Craftacular

Posted on December 10, 2011 by


Excited for the holiday season but dreading the impending pursuit of presents? Can’t decide what to buy for that friend you only kind of know? Solve all of your present problems at once by coming to the Downtown Mall for the Cville Holiday Craftacular this weekend!

This two-day artisan show will feature a large variety of crafts made by 17 different local artists. Expect to see plenty of jewelry, art prints, handbags, ceramics, handbound books, calendars, gourmet scone mixes, textile art, photography, handmade clothing, and so much more! Or, if you already have an image in your head of what you’re looking for, but you just can’t find it anywhere, describe your thoughts to the artisans. You will be surrounded by people who spend their lives turning ideas into artistic reality – why waste such an incredible opportunity?

There will also be music, food and a raffle for a chance to win unique works of art created by our vendors – and raffle tickets are FREE!

A portion of the sales will be donated to the Piedmont Council for the Arts, whose mission is to “sustain the thriving presence of the arts in the Charlottesville area” by providing “support service to artists, arts organizations, and their audiences.”

This is your chance to buy a truly one-of-a-kind holiday gift, help sustain the local economy, and explore the many products of Charlottesville’s remarkably talented artists!
