Shoppers will find intricate handmade ornaments - a sentimental gift that can be used year-after-year, unique original jewelry and wearables, extraordinary knits and crafts, and other exceptional items at the seasonal pop-up shop that will take over three galleries - from top to bottom - at the East End Arts Gallery in Riverhead.

"Our annual Holiday Boutique is the opportunity East End Arts provides its members (or anyone who becomes a member) to feature their talent and skill in the making of one-of-a-kind items designed to be given as special gifts," explained Jane Kirkwood, East End Arts Gallery Director. "The items will include jewelry, art wear, greeting cards, ornaments, floral arrangements, fiber art, baby clothes and on and on."

This year, more than 50 local artists will be offering up exclusive, imaginative creations. A limited number of each item will be available - ensuring that you're gifting a truly special present and Gift Boutique gifts will be available in a variety of price points.

"From the response we've had in past years, we know there is an East End consumer who loves the idea of giving these unique holiday gifts made by the amazing artists of eastern Long Island," added Kirkwood.
