Many area organizations open special holiday shops this time of year, packed with distinctive offerings that are frequently handmade by local artists.
One of these is Holden Arboretum’s annual Gifts from the Heart of Nature, a show and sale that features nature-inspired, environmentally friendly items by artists from around the region. Among the things you’ll find are photography and paintings, candles and botanicals, leather goods and jewelry, and glass, metal and wood items.
The seasonal shop opens with a holiday shopping party Fri 11/15 @ 3-8pm, with lights refreshments, holiday music and some of the artists on hand to chat with about their work. The show runs through Mon 12/30. Admission is free.
