Shopping for Christmas presents can be fun, especially when you have a chance to go to a craft fair. At these fairs you get to see works of art by local artists, fabulous hand-crafted items that are truly unique, and a wide assortment of Christmas goodies to munch on. And best of all, by shopping at a craft fair, you are supporting small businesses, home businesses, and artists in your own local communities.
Well, if you are looking for something special for that person on your Christmas gift list, you’re in luck. Over the next three months there are craft sales throughout the North Thompson Valley nearly every week starting the end of October through to December.
The first two are in Heffley Creek (Oct. 25) and Little Fort (Oct. 26). Then, in November, there are 10 in the communities of Barriere, Blackpool, Chu Chua, Clearwater, and Vavenby. Things calm down a bit for December, with just a few in Barriere and Clearwater.
These are just the sales for which the dates and times have been confirmed. There are a few more to be added, once the details have been sorted out by the coordinators.
Have a look at the Craft Fair Calendar on page 9 for exact dates, times and contact info for each sale, and watch for a revised ad each week that will include any updates.
If you know of a fair that isn’t listed, please let us know so that we can add it.
