Visions of Sugarplums began in 1974 by a group of moms who were very talented craftswomen. Each year, just before Christmas, they hosted an open house in their homes. As the Visions contingent of loyal shoppers grew, it mandated a move to a larger facility. Today, Quail Hollow Swim Club, conveniently located at Millbrook and Quail Hollow Drive in Midtown, has been the site of “Visions” for the last 32 years. The show has grown to include many talented, fun and interesting folks. Our reputation as a one-of-a-kind show is reflected in our phenomenal growth and success. We are thrilled that our 2017 show is our 43rd anniversary. A huge milestone for a small locally supported craft show. This would not be possible without some of the best crafters in the area, and an extremely loyal customer base.
One of Raleigh’s oldest holiday shows, this best kept secret is a shopping extravaganza. You can do all of your holiday shopping for truly unique gifts for everyone on your Christmas list. The moment you enter the door, our boutique design makes you think you are in a Christmas wonderland! There is always so much excitement in the air, reminiscing with old friends and making new friends.
So many of our customers shop us because they know they are getting a very high quality, hand-made item at a very reasonable price. We encourage you to support our resident artists and craftsmen by buying their locally-made items. With our wonderful selection of unique and affordable handmade gifts, you can make your hard-earned money stretch even further while investing in the community and helping to promote local women (and the occasional man) in business. PLEASE SHOP LOCAL!
