Local artisans on hand at Highlands Center event
This year the Highlands Center for Natural History's fourth annual Holiday Open House, Artisans & Crafters Sale theme is Warmth from the Heart. It is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 20, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Highlands Center's James Learning Center, 1375 S. Walker Road, Prescott.
Local artisans will be selling their creations, including metal sculptures, handcrafted rugs, silk scarves, jewelry, wood sculptures and wood crafts, and other unique nature-related items. The Benson Family Nature Store has added many new and popular items to their inventory for this event. A part of the proceeds from this sale will benefit the Highlands Center's children's outdoor educational programs. Bring in canned goods to be eligible to enter into the drawing for a 25 percent discount on a one-time shopping spree at the Nature store. All donated items will go to Open Door charity.
One of Santa's elves will make an appearance during the day for kids of all ages to get their photo taken and hand in their wish list to Santa. Kids will have the opportunity to shop a special area for purchases ($10 and under) for their family and friends. Enjoy goodies and hot chocolate, and free gift wrapping.
