The eighth annual Holiday on the Hill gift show will be held Friday and Saturday at the Girl Scouts of WNY Building, located at 2661 Horton Road, Jamestown. The show will run from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (note that it will not be held Sunday, as in previous years).
Holiday on the Hill is a boutique-style fine arts and crafts gift show. It continues to grow and improve, featuring jury-selected artisans from the Chautauqua County area. This process ensures a balanced selection of items and superior quality. There is no admission fee and the site is handicapped accessible. There is a single point checkout with two checkout registers for easy payment. No credit cards will be accepted, so all purchases must be made with cash or check.
For the first four years, the show was sponsored by the Girl Scouts, but is now organized and run by a small volunteer committee. The group rents the beautiful building on Horton Hill and provides most of the display pieces and all other necessities for the event. Each year, the committee donates 12 percent of the proceeds to a local not for profit organization. This year, the group is making a donation to CASA, Court Appointed Special Advocates.
The boutique-style gift show will be held Friday and Saturday.
This year, shoppers will find primitive country items, quilted and knitted items, dried floral arrangements, fashion accessories, including hand-felted items, pet treats, maple products, paintings, prints and photography, note cards and greeting cards, practical fleece items, jewelry featuring beach glass, ceramics, hand beading, gemstones and scrabble tile pendants and art glass, pottery, and hand forged items.
Several new vendors have been added for this year. Fresh evergreen arrangements and wreathes will be available, Shaker boxes and baskets, hand crafted journals and other albums, wooden items made of cherry, oak and walnut, and jewelry featuring hand forged metals will round out the wide selection of gift possibilities.
