The Hancher Showcase, the gift shop in the lobby of the University of Iowa Hancher Auditorium, is now open extra hours for convenient holiday shopping. Through Dec. 19, the Showcase is open 10:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

On Thanksgiving weekend, the Showcase will hold a Holiday Open House, 1-5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Nov. 29 and 30.

In addition to its regular merchandise -- arts-related items, jewelry, home-decor, recordings, games and collectibles -- the Showcase has stocked a variety of new holiday items, including tree ornaments, seasonal decorations and toys.

Proceeds from sales at the Hancher Showcase support the educational programs of Hancher Auditorium.

Hancher Showcase is operated by the Hancher Guild volunteer organization, which was recently honored with a 2002 “Governor’s Volunteer Award” from the State of Iowa, primarily for its educational fundraising through the Showcase.
