– If you are looking for a unique gift for that hard to buy for friend or a special treat for yourself this holiday season, look no further than Creative 360’s Annual Second Hand Picasso Sale. The sale, which is a fundraiser for the arts non-profit, offers original art, collectibles and interesting decorative and useful items from all over the world.

Now in its 13th year, the event has become a favorite for both gift givers and collectors. All proceeds from the sale go towards supporting Creative 360’s mission to offer environments where everyone in the community can experience all aspects of the creative process.
“This might be our favorite fundraising event,” remarked Curator and Program Director Colleen Reed. “It is so wonderful to see all of the beautiful art that is donated, and even better to see the look on someone’s face when the find the perfect treasure for a loved one or themselves.”
The sale offers framed wall art of all sizes, 3 D art, antiques, collectibles, such as Depression and Blenko glass, and interesting items from around the world. Some of the current items for sale are a quartz chess set from Mexico, original Native American art from Arizona, a selection of Midland themed prints by local artist Shur Lee, and holiday figurine candles from the 1970’s. Donations of items happens throughout the sale, so every day brings new items to the floor.
