WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- White Plains-based ArtsWestchester will host its fourth annual Holiday Boutique on Dec. 7-8 and 14-15.
The boutique will be at ArtsWestchester, 31 Mamaroneck Ave. in White Plains, Hours are 11 a.m - 6 p.m.on Saturday and 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is free.
Two things distinguish this boutique from others in Westchester County. In addition to offering one-of-a-kind, hand-made items that can’t be found anywhere else, shopping at the boutique allows visitors to support local artists and crafters who work in Westchester.
More than 25 artists and crafters will offer unique items at every price level including knitwear, hats, jewelry, glass, paintings and photography, in addition to artisanal lotions and soaps.
A workshop led by Evelyn Eidelberg is also scheduled, giving creative shoppers a chance to design and create accessories they can give as gifts, or keep for themselves. Beverages and snacks from Hastings Tea will also be available.
“Shopping at our Holiday Boutique allows residents to give twice,” said Janet Langsam, CEO of ArtsWestchester. “Once to the person receiving a hand-crafted, special gift and, again, to the many artists who enrich our communities with the beauty and quality of their work.”
There are tables available for artists and crafters who create children’s clothing and toys; accessories for the home; and handbags, totes, cosmetic bags, etc.
Artists interested in exhibiting should contact Lea Banks at LBanks@artswestchester.org.
