Thanks to Surf Market who went above and beyond supporting Winter Wonderland at Gualala Arts.  Owner Steve May says, “It is our mission to be a benefit to our community, and supporting the arts is an important part of doing that.”

Music will fill the halls while you shop in a wonderfully decorated arts & crafts holiday boutique of special hand made items from which to choose.

In addition to trees, gift-shopping at Gualala Arts remains an exciting option with many beautiful and practical gifts being offered by a variety of local artists and crafters. Carol Frechette has a selection of small, leather pouches. Ling-Yen Jones has jewelry for the ears, wrists and neck. The Pacific Piecemakers Quilt Guild has beautiful quilts for admiring, warming or both. There are also stuffed animals, beautiful accessories and more.

Dennis Pederson, who’s often seen at Gualala Arts’ Clay Studio, has brought along many of his pottery pieces including a large selection of mugs.

Mrs. Claus is working overtime to fill her Bake Shoppe with home-baked ginger-snap cookies. There will be two of Mrs. Claus’ favorite pies: Apple, Pecan and Pumpkin (subject to availability). She’ll package all to take home, and these will be a great addition to the holiday weekend dessert tables when family and friends abound! You can also purchase a variety of Sees Candies.

Santa and Mrs. Claus will have their special mailbox to accept childrens’ letters to Santa with their wants and wishes throughout the Winter Wonderland! It’s cheerful good fun for the family that puts everyone in the holiday mood!
