If you're like me (someone who gets claustrophobic at the mall) this is the time of year when shopping stress kicks in full gear.  The holidays are approaching... ACK!  But do not fear, my friends, because help is on its way.  You CAN get your holiday shopping done before Christmas Eve and enjoy the holidays.  The Irvine Fine Arts Center's annual Holiday Faire is here to save the day.

This year's event marks the 30th anniversary of the Irvine Fine Arts Center's annual Holiday Faire. Join the fine folks at IFAC for family fun and holiday shopping for fabulous arts and crafts on display from over 150 vendors. See hand-blown glass, ceramics, jewelry, folk crafts, porcelain, dolls, clothing, holiday decorations and more!  Hint, hint...I love the scarves and my favorite color is green ;0)

I love that proceeds from the Faire are put back into the arts community. The annual tradition includes a menu of delicious foods and desserts, including chili or baked potatoes with all the fixings in handmade ceramic bowls that you get to keep! The artists in the ceramics department are hard at work producing several hundred of these beautiful bowls just for the Holiday Faire.  I can't wait to see these bowls!

Bring your holiday shopping list and plan to spend either Friday evening or Saturday, or both days at the Irvine Fine Arts Center's annual Holiday Faire boutique! Don't miss this opportunity to purchase original artwork and to support the art programs at the Irvine Fine Arts Center.

Please note:  the center will be closed  Thursday, November 1st  and Friday, November 2nd  to prepare  for this event.  Doors open to public at 5 p.m. Friday evening November 2nd.  I'm so excited!!  See you there!
