Asheville Shopping - "End of the World Sale" At Mountain Made Art Gallery

Mountain Made Gallery will be hosting a special ‘pre-doomsday’ (Winter Solstice) sale on selected pieces of handcrafted artwork on December 21, 2012, 10AM-6PM.

Online PR News – 18-December-2012 – Asheville NC – December 21, 2012 is the end of the Mayan long-count calendar and the possible beginning of the end say some Doomsday preppers.

But is the 21th really the “End of the World”?

“Hardly! I haven’t got all my holiday shopping done yet!” says Mountain Made owner, Melinda Knies. Mountain Made art gallery is located inside the Grove Arcade, in downtown Asheville.

“With all the negative news about the weather, the economy and other happenings, I felt we should do something special here in the gallery on December 21th. Something just to prove not everything going on in the world is horrible or ugly.” said Knies.

Knies laughed and went on to say “When I told my staff I was going to be offering special discounts on select items in the store, they all said ‘Well it has to be the end of the world, because you NEVER have a sale!’ “

“But I feel that people have forgotten that December 21th is also Winter Solstice (the first day of winter). Winter Solstice has long been used as a time for people to rest, reflect and take note of all the good things that have happened in their lives during the past year.”

And it was with this thought in mind that Knies says, “We will be offering:

Hand-bound Leather and Silk Journals – To record new journeys in the coming year

Handcrafted Mirrors – To reflect upon our lives: past, present and future

Historical Books & Novels – To ponder the past

Handcrafted Wood Chairs – To rest in while dreaming of what the future might bring

Handmade Soaps – “Little luxuries” to soak away the present stress and struggles

Lamps – To light the path for ourselves and others into the future

And of course we have the marvelous new Winter Solstice jewelry series by Kate Stockman on display. Kate has created unique necklaces in silver and rare gemstones – exclusively for the store. There are 11 signature pieces – a fabulous necklace for every single day from Solstice to the end of the month. ”

Come by the gallery anytime on December 21th to view all the handcrafted artworks that have been discounted for this special “End of the World” event. Still shopping for the holiday stocking stuffers? Check out this list of little luxuries >
