Count Down to the 2010 Kandy Cane Castle Holiday Boutique!

The holidays are just around the corner and they're brimming with treasured traditions. And, one of the East Valley's favorite and most time-honored traditions is the Annual Kandy Kane Castle Holiday Boutique. This year, the boutique is proud to celebrate its 20th year of providing quality, handmade products to thousands of visitors over two weekends in November.

Kandy Kane Castle Boutique was started in the Groves area in Mesa, AZ in 1991 by Betty Bendure – principal of Highland Elementary School from 1989-1996, her business partner Beverley Cooper – another Mesa elementary school principal, and eight "crafty" teachers. This year, the boutique will boast over 60 talented vendors who will provide a wide range of skillfully handcrafted items. Seasonal merchandise – wreaths and garlands, clothing, ornaments, and toys – are in abundance. Home d├ęcor, fashion accessories, kitchen linens, baby items, and lots of jewelry are just a few of the many products available. And, definitely, not to be forgotten are the incredible foods – the best tamales in Mesa, a variety of salsas, fresh cinnamon rolls, jellies, canned fruits and vegetables, cakes, cookies and much, much more.

Beautiful crafts, delicious food products, reasonable prices, and a fun and friendly atmosphere are Kandy Kane Castle's hallmark -- and understandably, a big draw for shoppers old and new. You won't want to miss this delightful holiday tradition!
