Shoppe at McCord

McCord Gallery & Cultural Center invites the public to its seventh annual Holiday Shoppe this Friday, Nov. 23 – Saturday, Dec. 22.

The walls and halls will be decked out with art and fine crafts such as jewelry, silk scarves, inlaid footstools, fused glass picture frames, pens, ornaments, photographs, paintings, pottery, and quilts.
