Mad River Valley (Waitsfield, Warren, Fayston, Moretown)
The holidays are a festive time for village shopping; bargains, unique gifts, traditional crafts, and in-store refreshments abound. But the Paint-in brings surprises too: imagine an unexpected artist in-store breathing life into browsing! The Valley Art Foundation Country Christmas Open House and Holiday Paint-In places artists on display, allowing shoppers to connect with local crafters, peruse their creations, and purchase art on site. The weekend culminates with an art show in a pop-up gallery. www.madrivervalley.com, 802-496-3409.
