BRIEF: Gila/Cliff Artisan Winterfest continues Sunday at the Ole Tavern
SILVER CITY, Nov 25, 2012 (Menafn - Silver City Sun-News - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --Artisan knives, pottery, crochet, leather work and more filled tables under paintings of area ranching brands throughout the years at the Gila/Cliff Artisan Winterfest in Cliff's Ole Tavern.
This is the 9th year for the festival and while some vendors come and go, there are some things that never change.
"We have a really strong core group out here," said Mary Giardina, one of the event's organizers, "The quality of the products is really wonderful and people come out to sell every year."
16 venders showed up Saturday to sell their wares, from beaten brass jewelry and handcrafted furniture to skin care products and free hors' devours. They'll be back again today from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Crowd and vendors alike were entertained by the music of 14-year-old fiddlers Karuna Markham and Poppy Dames Saturday afternoon.
Shoppers came from as far away as Utah and as near as across the street to shop among the handmade art and crafts.
"It's a lot of fun," local shopper Toni Garland said, "There's great Christmas shopping, things for all ages and the weather has been just perfect."
