As fall approaches, you can feel the excitement building. On November 12th and 13th, the much anticipated Calico Holiday Arts and Crafts Show will once again take place in Moultrie, GA. Join the fun and fellowship as you leisurely browse over 400 booths, a treasure trove of custom gifts, seasonal décor and holiday confections.
The rich diversity of our Southern heritage abounds in the crafts of returning favorites and re-invents itself in exclusive new offerings from our region. Imagine surprising that special someone with a gift of limited edition jewelry made by Caroline Sandlin of Hollywood, SC. Caroline’s jewelry features a rustic casual style using handmade kiln fired pottery beads and pendants combined with semi-precious gemstones, wood and bone beads, shell beads and African recycled glass. Each piece is made by hand with the utmost care and creativity. Caroline’s work is artsy yet classic at the same time. Or treat yourself to a personable piece of art from AnC Creations. Two small town girls that have the ability to take any word that means something to you or a loved one and make it a masterpiece! Something that truly touches the heart. With the cooler temperatures of autumn it is a great time to get outside and clean the spent flowers from your gardens and flower beds. There is not a better time to add a wrought iron accent. Adding one of these metal garden products from Men of Iron will give your landscape a focal point during the dormant winter season. Old fences, candle holders and other pieces of old metal are hand welded into welcome signs and yard art. Their custom collectibles combine both form and function in a beautiful link to our past. This is just a sampling of the one-of-a-kind crafts that will be offered at this year’s holiday show.
Here is your chance to get all your holiday shopping done in short order! Not only will you support the local economy, find exclusive gifts for everyone on your list, save time and money, but you will have fun doing it!
