A handmade holiday event offers local art, crafts, gifts

Artists and crafters from the Quincy area invite everyone to a special holiday art boutique in Meadow Valley on Saturday, Dec. 8.

The inaugural event, called A Handmade Holiday, will be held 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 6626 Bucks Lake Road, the home of Wendy Deocampo, owner of Meadow Valley Botanicals.

Also featured will be Bobbie Linford, Elliptical Sunrise, Manifest Station Studio and Wilde Iris Art.

“I wanted to create this event so people can get a head start on their Christmas shopping with one-of-a-kind local gifts,” said Deocampo. “It also gives folks a chance to meet and support local and independent artists, designers, and crafters.”
