Duke Gardens craft sale preview

We hope to see you at the Garden Guild Holiday Craft Sale Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Doris Duke Center. Here are some photos to whet your appetite (and speaking of appetites, we'll also have candies and baked goods). All items are crafted by Garden Guild volunteers. We'll even have a gourd-ornament crafting demo.

Admission is free, and all proceeds go directly to Duke Gardens. If you miss the sale, some remaining items will be available at the Terrace Shop.
