Shopping at the Holiday Marketplace will continue from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays, December 2, 9 and 16.
Shoppers will have the opportunity to purchase handmade jewelry, baskets, bird carvings, soaps, birdhouses, garden art and other gift items from more then 20 artisans, said executive director Barbara Brecher.
A few of the new Chesapeake Bay scarves are still available as well as signed copies of Pat Roses’s book, Tides That Bind-Weems, VA. The gift shop is full of holiday decorations, ornaments and hostess gifts, said Brecher.
