Holiday Craft Show

Our Holiday Craft Show is the Best Yet!

The “From Our Hands” holiday Craft Show is now open at Falling Rivers Gallery. Over 20 crafters have set up booths in the gallery show space offering holiday decor, Christmas ornaments, unique gifts and more.

Check out our holiday decor – hand-painted ornaments, tree skirts, sea shell Christmas trees, Santa under glass, and other creative ideas.

Want to stay warm this winter? Or add some style to your wardrobe? Our crafters have handmade hats, scarves, handbags and other apparel that you will love.

If you have someone that is hard to shop for, we have some unique gifts that they will enjoy. How about a straw basket? Or a wood-turned hummingbird house? We also have music boxes and kaleidoscopes, as well as soaps, lotions, wooden bowls, and bird feeders.

So don’t wait until the last minute and the shelves are bare – many items are one-of-a-kind. Come early for the best selection and plan to spend time browsing just to see what you might find.
