The Fine Arts Center (FAC) of Kershaw County is counting down the days until the popular Holiday Sales Show opens in the Douglas-Reed House. This year, the Holiday Sales Show will take place  starting today through Wednesday, Dec. 13. This unique holiday shopping experience has become a Camden tradition.

This year, nearly 40 vendors will have one-of-a-kind, handmade items for everyone. Set in the FAC’s historic Douglas-Reed House, the show will feature a selection of fine, handmade pieces in clay, glass, metals and wood. Some of the items shoppers will find include pottery, hand-blown glass, aprons, woodwork, soaps, candles, specialty teas, and coffees, dog treats, herbed jams and syrups, candies and dips, jewelry, stuffed toys, ornaments, wall art stained glass and more. 

Local potter and pottery instructor Debra Gregory will act as curator again this year. Shopping hours are 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1:30 to 6 p.m. on Sunday. 

“This is my favorite time of the year -- and I truly do most of my holiday shopping here at the FAC’s Holiday Sales Show,” FAC Director of Marketing Jane Peterson said. “I am never disappointed with the selection of beautiful, original pieces.”
