Looking for a one-of-a-kind gift for someone on your holiday list? You’ll find plenty of possibilities at four arts and crafts sales in Davis next weekend.

* The granddaddy is the Davis Art Center’s Holiday Sale, which runs from Friday through Sunday, Dec. 2-4, at 1919 F St. The 21st annual fundraiser will feature 70 vendors, pre-screened for quality, selling functional and fine art goods, including ceramics, textiles, soaps, jewelry, clothing, home décor, candies and foods. Roughly 200 volunteers make the sale happen.

A highlight is the Children’s Secret Store, where youngsters can shop in privacy for gifts for family members and other loved ones. Young volunteers help them make their decisions and together they wrap the secret gifts.

This year, in addition to bulk-ordered toys and other inexpensive items, a Green Table will feature quality handmade gifts such as painted silk scarves, glazed ceramic bowls and mugs, glass bead necklaces, sewn ornaments, knitted slippers, natural scented soaps and local coffee.

Holiday Sale organizers created the Green Table to help children develop both an environmental awareness and appreciation of art.

The Davis Art Center Holiday Sale runs from noon to 7 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3; and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 4.

* Art on Arthur is a holiday arts and crafts sale from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3, at Lutheran Church of the Incarnation, 1701 Russell Blvd. in West Davis.

Among the unique goods for sale are photography by Gary McGlaughlin, Paul Kolarik, Katrina Wong; oil paintings by Sondra Olsen; watercolor works by Adriel Rische; clay items by Diana Flak and Jill Van Zant; and glass art by Patrick Mullen, Eli Pitts and Linnea Wong.

In addition, shoppers will find jewelry by Peggy Skiles, Wong, Rische and more; wood art by Stuart Dubois and Dorothy Brandon; quilts by a number of church quilters; ornaments by various artists; felted items by Carol Klippstein; fair trade coffee and chocolate; toffee by Carrie Smith; and holiday-themed gifts.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to charity.

* An Artisans Craft Show & Sale will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3, at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St. downtown.

More than 20 craftspeople whose work showcases ceramics, jewelry, woodworking, knitting, ornaments and gift cards will sell their wares on the newly renovated second floor of the hall. Five percent of the sales will be donated to the Odd Fellows for use in their community charity work.

‘We’re very excited to offer this opportunity for craftspeople to show their wares and for members of the community to come shopping!” say organizers Kerry Sortor and Amina Harris. “We are really looking forward to a lot of people searching for fabulous holiday gifts.”

* A Holiday Craft Fair and Sale is planned from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3, in the parish hall at the Episcopal Church of St. Martin, 640 Hawthorn Lane.

Among the items for sale are jams, jellies (including Mama Bekebrede’s famous pomegranate jelly), candies, baked treats and fresh walnuts from a Winters orchard.

Shoppers also will find quilts, scarves, felt hats, wine-cork trivets, woodworked items, jewelry and Christmas decorations. A special section will highlight “once-loved” jewelry, decorations and kitchen items. A Christmas quilt in warm, autumn colors will be raffled off.

Admission and parking are free. For more information, call (530) 756-0444 or visit churchofstmartin.org.
