SHOP LOCAL on Black Friday (and Saturday)!
November 23 and 24 will mark the 24th Annual Pods for the Pulpit Crafts Fair, a major fundraising event put on by the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Upper Valley in Norwich, VT. . Funds raised will be shared with The Haven and UVStrong (a team of non-profit agencies that responds to natural disasters in the Upper Valley). Revenue comes from booth fees, commissions and raffle tickets on a colored woodblock print donated by Lyme artist Matt Brown. (He will have a booth at the Fair.)
Two floors, with 40+ vendors, will show a wide variety of high quality crafts including jewelry in many forms, pottery, rag rugs, quilting, woodblock prints, herbals, basketry, floor cloths, etchings, felted sculptures, woven goods, fiber art, wreaths, hand spun yarn and woven wool rugs, braided rugs, porcelain ornaments, photographs, painted gourds, elf slippers, wooden lamps, pickles, wreaths and more. You name it, we’ve got it. We aim for League-quality craftspeople.
The fair is held Thanksgiving weekend at Tracy Hall on Main Street in Norwich, Vermont. Hours are 10-4 on November 23 and 24. There is no admission fee. But people are strongly encouraged to purchase raffle tickets.
