Are you looking for an original, one of a kind gift for that special person on your list? Well, look no further. You’re sure to find it at the Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County’s (FAC) annual Holiday Sales Show. Set in the Center’s historic Douglas-Reed House (ca. 1812), the show will feature a selection of fine, handcrafted works of art in clay, glass, fiber and wood, along with many other hand-crafted items all made in the USA. This year, more than 40 local and regional artists will participate in this annual shopping extravaganza. The 2011 Holiday Sales Show is sponsored by First Community Bank.

The Holiday Sales Show begins with a special “sneak preview” night on Friday, Dec. 2 from 5:30 – 7 p.m. prior to the Chamber Choir of Kershaw County’s Christmas Concert and will include spiced cider and other holiday goodies. The Holiday Sales Show continues daily through Dec. 14. Regular shopping hours are 10:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 1:30 to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Debra Gregory, a ceramic artist and teacher at the FAC, secured the artists and will manage the show. “This is my third year coordinating artists for the Holiday House and I thoroughly enjoy it. It is such a pleasure to seek out new artists (and the old!) and get an education about how they create their work,” she says.

Shoppers can expect to fine some one-of-a-kind treasures including pottery, jewelry, baskets, hand-made toys, scarves, crotched afghans, stained, hand-blown and hand-painted glass, unusual metal items and frames, wooden items such as oyster knives, cutting boards, and bird houses, ornaments, and photographic note cards. Plus, you will also find edible treats like Mother Shucker’s Original Cocktail Sauce, Happy Memories Fudge, Sally’s Famous Dips, tea and tea infusers, jams and jellies, and more!

Participating artists include Craig Bell, Elizabeth Dixon, Christina Fair, Sallie Porth, Mary Sparrow, Clay Burnette, Vivian Metze, Geri Desousa, David Russell, Melissa Crook, Sherrill Hill, Harvee Kranz, E.J. Ham, Derek Napper, Paul Peterson, Valerie Puntillo, William Thomas, Susan Shrader, Benira Sutphin, Margaret Bass, Linda Kincaid, Monica Sheorn, Betty Timmerburg, Tim Graham, Anne Schultz, Nancy Butterworth, Debra Gregory, Dot Goodwin, Bonnie Geiger, Mitsi Paquette, Belinda Peters (Two City Studio), Pat Pruett, Mary Lynch, LPS/Cinnamon Scentsations, Sally’s Famous Dips, Cindy Rhame, Kathy Redner, Susan Ciotti, Emily Houde, Becky Ratz and Vicky Robinson.
