CARBONDALE, Ill. — The 44th annual Holiday Craft Sale at Southern Illinois University is a one-stop shop to find just the right gift for a special someone or for yourself this holiday season. It’s happening Dec. 1-3 at the Student Center.

The sale runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Dec. 1 and 2 and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Dec. 1. It takes place in the Art Gallery and Renaissance Room, located on the first floor.

Scores of vendors
Organizers say there will be about 75-80 vendors participating in the popular event, sponsored by the Student Center Craft Shop. They’ll be offering a wide array of handmade items, local products and more. Artisans and creators from around the region will be selling jewelry, woodwork items, holiday crafts, paintings, fibers, glass, prints, clay/pottery and countless other items for the home, personal use or gift-giving.
