The Arts Council of Princeton is pleased to announce the return of
Sauce for the Goose, its annual holiday arts and crafts sale, from
December 2 through 22, at the Paul Robeson Center’s
Taplin Gallery. This year’s sale is bigger than ever, featuring
more than 30 local artists and artisans.
The sale features a mix of fine art and functional crafts, including
paintings, drawings, functional and decorative ceramics, art glass,
holiday ornaments, greeting cards, photography, jewelry, hand knit
fashions, felted and beaded work, and more.
The Arts Council will also offer a special members-only discount. All
members will receive 10% off their total purchase throughout the entire
duration of the sale. Still not a member but want to take advantage
of the many perks? Anyone interested in becoming a member of the Arts
Council can purchase a membership and receive their 10% discount immediately.
“Sauce for the Goose not only makes it possible for Princeton residents

Arts Manager, who also organizes the annual sale.
