Holiday sales on tap this week

LANSDOWNE Local artisans and their holiday wares are to be showcased at two events in Lansdowne.

A Bit of the Arts began in 2002 and has grown to include more than 30 artists selling jewelry, ceramics, photography, paintings, and other artwork.

It is to be held Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Twentieth Century Club, 84 S. Lansdowne Ave., adjacent to the SEPTA Regional Rail station.

Also, about 15 small retail vendors selling wreaths, candles, soap, paper goods, leather bags, pet toys, and other items are to be at the Pop-Up Market on Saturday from noon to 6 p.m. That market is at 20 N. Lansdowne Ave.

Both events are presented by the Lansdowne Economic Development Corp. For more information, go to - Mari A. Schaefer
