Find Unique Gifts At Academy Village Market by Laurey Jaros

A unique Holiday Gift Market replaces Academy Village’s usual Tuesday concert on November 15th at the Arizona Senior Academy.  The Academy lobby and conference rooms as well as the patio, located at 13705 E. Langtry Lane, is the event venue, from 10 AM until 1 PM.

Academy Village Artists, Writers, Potters, Fabric Artists, Jewelers and more, along with other area artisans will be joined by Club La Familia who will serve a complete hot Mexican lunch for $10.  A special Raffle is featured, with Vendor-donated jewelry, photography and handcrafted lamps, Massages, Pilates workouts and many other prizes.

Ten percent of all vendor sales and all raffle proceeds will benefit the new non-profit, Greater Vail Community Resources, to help open the Vail Food Bank in January, 2017.

How satisfying is, to find just the right, unique gift for a hard-to-purchase-for friend or relative. What a bonus it is when that gift is a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry, artwork, ceramic item or other hand-crafted piece.  Add to this, a good time at a close-by neighborhood market, a delicious hot lunch and, perhaps, a relaxing chair massage –all this – plus the probability of meeting up with neighbors and other friends, are what makes community-organized events just plain fun.
