FANTASTIC ART JUMBLE Sale and WIndow Display

Well the Arts Council Elves were happily getting things ready for the JUMBLE Art Sale today and boy check out all the goodies.
 If you are a member of the arts council you have first dibs on all the goodies on Friday night Sneak Peak.
There are some absolutely fabulous Christmas Gift ideas for just about any budget.
I spied some beautiful beaded evening bags on one table, vintage boxes, prints, cards, ceramics, and several glass paperweights.
 Susan Gartner is putting the finishing touches to her window display and it's a feast for the eyes. By the way Susan made the paper roses and is selling them (but you can't take home until the jumble exhibit is over).
