Friday, December 2, 2011   and  Saturday, December 3, 2011

9 AM to 5 PM  on Friday   and   9 AM To 3 PM on Saturday
You bet I’ll be there!  I’ll have plenty of necklaces made with beach rocks…
Loads of silver earrings…
And a forest of wire trees featuring earrings that are specially priced for the fair at $20!
And that’s not all….
As a thank you to shoppers who come to the fair to support local craftspeople, I’ll take 20% off the price of all of my jewelry. (Yup. That means those fun little glass bead earrings, on sterling silver earwires, will actually cost only $16 a pair.)
This is a really great local crafts fair with a whole building full of talented crafters. Admission is free. There is food for sale to support the YWCA, and plenty of lunch tables for sitting. It’s my favorite fair of the year. Even if your shopping is done, it’s worth it to stop by and see people you know. You’d be nuts to miss it!
