Artists, shoppers sought for ‘yard sale’

Artist Woody Candish and The Islander will again host an annual pre-holiday “yard sale” on the sidewalks of the Island Shopping Center in Holmes Beach.

The annual sale will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 19. Participating artists and crafters, including associates of Restless Natives, the Anna Maria Island Artists Guild, Art League, Island Gallery West or any other art organization are invited to have a booth at the sale.

There is no fee to enter and all area artists are welcome to get in the holiday spirit and participate in the outdoor sidewalk sale. The deadline to register and take part in the sale is Dec. 18.

For holiday shoppers, the sale is a call to purchase quality original art and crafts, some at bargain prices, directly from local artisans.

To participate in the sale, contact Bonner Joy or Lisa Williams at The Islander at 941-778-7978, e-mail either or, or stop by the newspaper office, 5404 Marina Drive.
