Art & Gift Fair offers diverse holiday gift options


The Delta College Fashion Club held its annual Art &  Gift fair Nov. 7-8 in Danner Hall.

“We brought some local artists and small businesses to show what they have,” said fashion club member Daniel Gonzalez, who was also a vendor.

The fair featured lots of interesting items such as: fine and hand-crafted jewelry, scarves, handbags and shoes, Tupperware, skin care and cosmetics, organic brands and creative accessories.

Many of the fair vendors have attended for a number of years.

Carolyn Henderson has been present in the fair for eight years.

“I’ve been selling 95% hand crafted jewelry since 2004,” said

Henderson, who was selling necklaces and bracelets.

Vendor Alice Williams sold fine jewelry including earrings, necklaces and bracelets.

“I’ve been attending the fair for about two or three years,” said Williams.

American Skin Care, run by April Price, was also a vendor.

Price was there to explain skin procedures on the company’s deals, including luxury relaxing facials, age management treatments and pre/post surgical and laser procedures.

Price and American Skin Care was also holding a raffle during the fair that had a $1500 prize for the winner.

This was Price’s second year at the art and gift fair.

There were a lot of students visiting the fair as well.

Student Rachel Barnes was interested in some handcrafted jewelry.

“I bought some bracelets for me and some friends, I like the hand crafted ones because they are simple” Barnes said.

Sandy Ramirez liked a different gift item offering.

“I like fine jewelry better because they shine better,” said Ramirez.
