Fun Handmade Gifts While Supporting the Community

Artascope’s 3rd Annual Holiday Show and Sale kicked off December 12th with many new and inspiring additions!

Wrapping to Feed the Community!
Three of our neighborhood girls were invited to share their card-making and wrapping skills! All of the money collected went directly to the South Portland Food Pantry. They made adorable cards and envelopes made from old books and magazines. And anyone who needed their gifts wrapped, could be gift wrapped in style! Everyone was thrilled to have their treasures wrapped. Thanks gals!

Also new this year was the Silent Auction to benefit the Community Crisis Ministries Fund of South Portland and Cape Elizabeth. With over 40 items donated by local Artists, when the Auction wrapped up Sunday Dec 21st, over $1,300 was raised to help those in need! Great job everyone! Thank you for your goods and your bids!

We hope you are still enjoying your Holiday Season! During this vacation week, we are open! Our Holiday Sale will remain up through the end of the year and our new schedule is ready! Treat yourself to some creative R & R in ’09!

Happy Holidays!
