Jaycee Park holds 6th Annual Holiday Art Sale

GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) Folks in Greenville had a chance to get a head-start on holiday shopping.

Christmas lights were already twinkling inside the Jaycee Park Center during the Sixth Annual Holiday Art Sale.
Everything from pottery, to sculptures, to paintings was on sale. Many of the items were one of a kind.

Sara Caropreso says Jaycee Park holds the event around this time every year, and it's a chance for local artists to get their wares in front of customers before the holiday rush gets too hectic.

"A good portion of the vendors that we've got here today make their work here in our studio at Jaycee Park. They either take classes or use our studio space," says Caropreso.

The next event for Greenville Parks and Recreation will be Greenville Gives-- the city's Christmas tree ceremony on Friday, December 7. Caropreso says there will be an artist market for that event as well.
