The East End Arts Holiday Gift Boutique had its grand opening yesterday, Nov. 15, at its East Main Street headquarters in Riverhead.

The items for sale are made by three dozen of its member artists and other craftspeople and include one-of-a-kind ornaments, home goods, artwear, feltware, ceramics, greeting cards, jewelry, natural soaps and candles.

Gallery director Jane Kirkwood said that this year the boutique has 300 ornaments or three times the number of the previous year.

“I managed to get them all up, that’s the miracle,” Kirkwood said.

The ornaments range in price from $4 to $40. East End Arts members get a 15% discount on all purchases.

The gift boutique runs from six days a week from Nov. 15 to Dec. 23. The hours are Tuesday through Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturdays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
