An upcoming holiday craft show in Grand Junction will include more than 80 vendors selling a variety of hand-crafted merchandise.

“What a great way to purchase unique and hand-crafted gifts and support local artisans,” said Maria Rainsdon, general manager of Two Rivers Convention Center, the Avalon Theater and amphitheater at Las Colonias Park. “We have some farmers market favorites that are showing off their fall and winter items that will make perfect holiday gifts.”

Rainsdon said the merchandise will include bath and body gifts, crochet and knitted items, glass art, home decor, jewelry, quilted gifts and photography. Food and beverages also will be available.
