We are holding a raffle for a beautifully crafted lamp turned by our woodworker Franklin Geist with a handpainted shade by our artist Debbi Wetzel. Tickets are available at the shop, or from co-op members for one dollar each, or six for five dollars. As a non-profit cooperative, the members periodically participate in fundraising activities to help with the overhead of the shop, and these two members have donated their time in hopes of offsetting the winter heating costs. The shop is fully stocked for the holidays with work from about fifty craftspeople, including weaving, pottery, jewelry, wooden ware, handknits, candles, cards and much more.
On Wednesday, Dec. 3, the River Artisans will have an Open House from 5–7 p.m. with light refreshments and raffle tickets will be available, as well as an opportunity to meet some of the artists.
Our regular hours are: weekdays from noon to 5 p.m. and weekends from 10 a.m.–3 p.m. For more information, call the shop during business hours at 802-869-2099.
