Calling Everybody With a Mother - Shop for Mom!
Back to the Blog... | Post Feedback | Author Bio | Printer-Friendly

The Jewish Community Center on the Upper West Side is holding its annual Mother's Day Gift Sale, Tuesday and Wednesday, May 6th and 7th, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., featuring the work of the Center's professional teaching staff, from its art/craft/design faculty. We always write this sale up, as we know that there are so many wonderful artists, designers, and craftspeople there selling great stuff...and the price is usually "right."

Here is a perfect opportunity to snag some exquisite jewelry, textiles, ceramics, and other professionally handmade items that are well priced and one-of-a-kind, the perfect gifts to say "I Love You" to Mom. There will be richly beaded necklaces, bracelets, and earrings; lavish hand-painted scarves and pillows; belts, hats, and other fashion accessories; as well as home furnishing items. Prices are from $15 and up. (Shown here: a lavish pearl bracelet from glass artist/jeweler Melissa Terman, whose work includes both beaded jewelry and blown-glass jewelry.)

All the teachers at the sale offer courses, too, at the JCC (that's the whole point, of course!), so inquire about signing up for the late spring or early summer semester if you are inspired and think you'd like to learn how to make beaded jewelry or paint on silk yourself...or whatever.

Cash, checks, and credit cards accepted.  For more information call Sigrid Orr at 646-505-5715.  JCC in Manhattan, The Samuel Priest Rose Building, 334 Amsterdam Avenue at 76th Street; www.jccmanhattan.org
