Twelve drummers drumming? Eleven pipers piping? Whatever’s on your holiday shopping list, there is a solid chance you’ll find it at Arts on Grand in downtown Spencer, an Iowa Cultural and Entertainment District.

This year’s “Christmas in the Gallery” exhibit features original artwork from more than three dozen Iowa artists, and it’s all for sale: silver jewelry, glass ornaments, ceramic bowls, hand-printed cards, even a few hand-painted decoys of ducks and loons (and probably a partridge in a pear tree, if you look hard enough).

If you visit on Dec. 17, stick around for a performance of “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play” by the touring Coffee Beanz Theatre Group. And to make life really wonderful, pop in to Carroll’s Bakery two doors down, where you’ll find the doughnuts, pastries and desserts that locals have enjoyed since 1916.
