The Martinez Arts Association (MAA), under the guidance of MAA Event Coordinator Marlene Haws, is sponsoring a holiday boutique for the second year due to the success of last year’s event. The Holiday Boutique is a cooperative of up to 20 local artisans with incredibly diverse skills and styles. This year items for sale include hand crafted jewelry, clothing, sculpture, paintings, photography and other craft items, all created locally. Ms. Haws continues to promote downtown Martinez as a destination for art. In her words, "Shopping at our Holiday Boutique is an opportunity to support our local artists and, at the same time, buy a unique hand-crafted gift."

The MAA invites everyone to visit the Holiday Boutique and help promote the arts in Martinez! As Ms. Haws talked about the boutique, she was quick to mention, "Proceeds from the boutique help support the Martinez Arts Association’s grant program which, in turn, benefits local schools." This is an example of an event that pays it forward to the next generation, helping to keep the arts thriving.

The 2013 Holiday Boutique Grand Opening will be Friday, December 6, from 1pm to 8pm, at the Old Train Depot in Downtown Martinez and will include a children’s craft activity to encourage artistic expression from our youth. Adults are welcome to share the activity with their children. Opening day also coincides with the Martinez Children’s Light Parade and Snow Park, which helps kick off the holiday season in downtown Martinez.

The Holiday Boutique will be open Wednesdays through Sundays, from December 6 through December 22, at the north end of Ferry Street, down by the railroad tracks, inside the Old Train Depot, rain or shine.

Hours of Operation: Wednesdays 11:30am – 1pm. Thursdays & Fridays 11:30am – 1pm and 4pm – 8pm. Saturdays 12pm – 8pm Sundays 11am – 3pm.
