Santa's busy with his reindeer, but the Yellow Springs Arts Council has his Sack and Sleigh!

Experience Holidays with the YSAC during December's 3rd Friday Fling in the Springs.  Shop for last-minute holiday gifts without the retail hassle at the Holiday Art Jumble Exhibit & Sale!  For one day only, dig deep into Santa's Sack for big discounts on unique, antique and gently-used arts treasures.  Each pull from the Sack gets you a discount on any $10+ Art Jumble item.  Discounts range from $1-off lumps of coal to $10-off gems. 

Enjoy mulled wine, holiday treats and seasonal music while browsing through the Holiday Art Jumble.  And, don't leave without taking a holiday picture in Santa's Sleigh with Suzy the Snake!  It's parked right in front of the YSAC Community Gallery for the holidays.  This festively adorned sleigh is perfect for that special family or sweetheart photograph!

The Holiday Art Jumble Sale & Exhibit is open Wednesdays through Sundays (1-4pm) from December 15 to January 20.  You will find unique gifts at “can’t-resist” prices and you will be supporting the arts in Yellow Springs.  YS is home to many collectors of art, and they have been generously donating their paintings, arty bits & bobs, handmade jewelry and fine crafts.  We have received art from all over the world!  Several really fabulous items will be silent auctioned each week and we will be regularly refreshing the exhibit, so check in often to see what is new.

“‘Tis the season of giving” or “‘Tis the season of shopping”? – the modern-day holiday conundrum.  This season you can do both!  Fill your heart with cheer as you shop for one-of-a-kind gifts at the YSAC Holiday Art Jumble.  Scores of arts supporters have donated gently-used artsy items and antique collectibles.  The walls and pedestals of the YSAC Gallery are filled with out-of-the-closet art, hand-crafted whimsy, tiny collectibles and fabulous chotchkies!

All proceeds from the Holiday Art Jumble benefit the YS Arts Council in support of local artists and the YSAC Community Gallery.  Leave it to the Yellow Springs Arts Council to launch this season’s most creative fundraiser to continue its mission during difficult financial times.  Join us in supporting arts and education efforts.  Make this season’s holiday shopping a distinctive and heartfelt experience by giving back when you buy your gifts at the YSAC’s Jumble Sale!

Experience Holidays with the YSAC!  YS Experience events are made possible with the generous support of our many community partners, including the YS Chamber of Commerce, the YS Community Foundation and Emporium Wines & Underdog Café.
