Duke Gardens' volunteer Garden Guild meets weekly for much of the year to share and learn craft techniques and make crafts for the annual holiday craft sale.
The 2012 sale is this Saturday, Nov. 10, from 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m. (Please note the new time.) Admission is free, parking is free until 1 p.m., and all proceeds go toward the upkeep of these beautiful public gardens. If they sell out early, as is often the case with this popular sale, they will close early. We have many people lining up as much as an hour early, eager to get first dibs on all the goodies. If you're planning to come on the later end, you can call the Terrace Shop at 684-9037 to check whether the sale is still going on.
The sale features holiday ornaments and decorations, soaps, jewelry, knitted goods, note cards, pet toys, gourd crafts and lots more.
Here's a small preview of what you'll see. Hope to see you here!
