Admission to the event and the museum is free. Purchases can be made by cash or check, with a portion of proceeds going to support Fine Art Museum programming. The sale will feature high-quality gift items from WCU students, staff and alumni, such as scarves, ceramics, jewelry, knitted wear and books. Live music and snacks will be shared during the event.

The Handmade Holiday Sale is held the week before Thanksgiving to enable community members to begin their holiday shopping before Black Friday while supporting local artists, said Dawn Behling, gallery specialist at the Fine Art Museum.

The museum is located in the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center and is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays, with extended hours on Thursdays to 7 p.m. Admission and parking are free. The museum is closed on university holidays and breaks. For more information about the sale, contact Behling at 828-227-3591 or dmbehling@wcu.edu.
