Holiday boutique promises to offer array of AWE!-some gifts, goodies

Holiday Shoppe, now in its third year of sponsorship by members of the Arizona Women’s Experience group, better known as AWE!, will be presented Nov. 19 and 20 at Arizona Community Church.

AWE! Director Kathy Meyer says the program has grown from a fun way to share handcrafted items among its own members to a full-blown boutique with a breakfast and lunch café.

AWE! members, joined by crafters from all over the Valley, will offer for sale hand-painted furniture and accessories, wood items, ornaments, wreaths, jewelry, decorated eggs, metalwork, handmade dolls, angels, handmade cards, children’s items, pet gifts and holiday decorations.

There will also be hourly raffles, which include handcrafted items from participating vendors and local merchants.

Admission is free for all shoppers. 

Handcraft vendors may request applications at  or by calling (480) 491-2210.  Deadline for registration is Oct. 1. 

Arizona Community Church is at 9325 S. Rural Road, Tempe.
