Gallery staff and consignors wish to thank everyone for their enthusiastic support following reopening of the Expressions Gallery after a many-months closure. We know 2021 will showcase all the wonderful talent in PebbleCreek and look forward to seeing you in the new year.

A major restaging event is occurring on Jan. 7, when staff and volunteers will replace most non-wall items with new inventory; the first big replenishment of stock in a long time! So, even if you’ve been to the gallery during the holidays, it’s time to browse anew.

Enjoy perusing all the jewelry items that are so professionally crafted. Stock up on bracelets, earrings, and necklaces. Some items are sold as sets, but for more fun, mix and match styles yourself for a distinctive look.

If someone did something unexpected for you during December, the gallery has many items that say thank you. Check out small dishes and bowls in glass and ceramic, serving sets, cloth and quilt table runners, or personal items like eyeglass holders, small wallets, and purses. We also have many beautifully made greeting cards to say thank you.

If you are missing in-person visits with grandchildren, think about shipping a gift just because, no special reason needed! For little girls in your family, choose doll clothes and accessories for the American Girl dolls they so enjoy. There are children’s books authored and illustrated by your neighbors along with southwestern style bookmarks to hold their places. Just wait until you see the incredible book that can best be described as a book in a decorated box—this is a must-see. For very little ones, check out the baby blankets available in so many colors and patterns.

If you are new to PebbleCreek and think you may enjoy selling your hobby items in the gallery, stop in and ask staff to provide you with an information packet so you, too, can join the fun in 2021!

For the most fun, mark your calendars now for Dec. 4—the 2021 Holiday Fest in the Creative Arts Center!
