Adeler Jewelers Annual Holiday Sale

Great Falls resident Lynn Kemmerer has already been shopping locally this holiday season. "I just recently shopped at Adeler’s," Kemmerer said. "I bought earrings for myself!" Kemmerer joins a long list of celebrities in wearing Adeler designed earrings, one of the most recent being Halle Berry at the Oscars for her 50th anniversary tribute to James Bond. Kemmerer took advantage of the substantial percentage discounts that Adeler Jewelers, located in Great Falls Village Centre, offers annually during November through December 24. Their "Countdown to Savings Calendar" is online at adelerjewelers.com. The Adeler showroom contains a variety of gemstone, pearl, diamond and gold jewelry and watches.

Valentina Adeler said that, "it’s a great time of year . . . Our holiday promotion is the one promotion that we do all year."

Kaleidoscope of Gifts

At the Jinny Beyer Studio you can buy an artisan kaleidoscope as a gift that will entertain and amaze, or a kaleidoscope quilt kit for the new or experienced quilter on your holiday list. A hardwood cutting board inlaid with the Mariners Compass accent design might be the perfect holiday addition to the kitchen of a sailor or boater. The boards are completely food safe and finished with vegetable oil, not peanut oil. Sterling silver sewing tools and jewelry designed by silversmith T.J. Lane include the "Jinny Beyer Thimble."


One of the Artists on The Green, Gail A. Pean, prepares for their holiday show and sale of winter-themed art, Dec. 6 - 8.

Today’s Art, Tomorrow’s Heirloom

"The cost of an original oil painting is affordable," Great Falls artist, Gail A. Pean said, "and an original oil painting can be passed on for generations. They are a one-of-a-kind investment and oil paints last thousands of years." Five full-time artists have their work for sale at Artists on The Green, in the Great Falls Village Centre. Drop-in anytime, or join them at the Opening Reception for their winter-themed exhibit on Friday, Dec. 6, from 6 – 8 p.m. and a Holiday Open House all day on Saturday, Dec. 7. They will be open until 9 p.m. on Dec. 7, during the annual Great Falls Tree Lighting celebration, and from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 8.
