Craft Sale: A few goodies remain

Thanks to all the people who helped make the Garden Guild Craft Sale a success on Saturday, and to the Garden Guild itself. The Guild volunteers work all year on crafts to sell in the Terrace Shop and at the annual sale, to help raise money for Duke Gardens.

Did you know that Duke Gardens receives roughly half of its operating budget from Duke University? The rest comes from individual donors who value what this public garden brings to the community, and from special fundraising events like the craft sale and our semi-annual plant sale.

If you missed the craft sale but would still like to buy a Garden Guild craft, just stop by the Terrace Shop and you'll find a variety of items.

Here is a sampling (please see sale preview post for more):

hand-knit scarves


holiday trees made from upcycled sweaters

gourd pencil holders & "toad abodes"

note cards

quilted items

baby toys

Duke blue decorations and jewelry
