The fourth annual Holiday Adornments Show and Sale in the AmadorArts Gallery in Sutter Creek offers a wide variety of clever and affordably-priced gift ideas including ornaments, fresh wreaths, holiday decorations and cards, jewelry, wearable accessories, even candy, and much more. Twenty-two local artists have been selected. Get a head start on the season because this event opens November 4 and continues through December 23.
