Arts, Christmas

Craft Alliance Student/Faculty Sale

When: Sat., Nov. 28, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sun., Nov. 29, 12-5 p.m. 2015

When the holidays come a-callin' so too appears the ardent desire to purchase every present immediately, allowing you to spend the rest of the season sitting back, relaxing and eating all the cookies. But just because you want to shop quickly doesn't mean you should head to the mall. We should be supporting local artists and businesses, ensuring that their holidays are merry, green and bright, too. The Craft Alliance Student/Faculty Sale makes doing the right thing pretty easy. Held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday (November 28 and 29) at the Delmar Loop location (6640 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-725-1177 or www.craftalliance.org), this shopportunity features cool handmade crafts from students and teachers alike. Items up for purchase include jewelry, pottery, textiles and more — basically, there's something to make each of our gift recipients feel thought about and loved.
