This weekend you can do a craft fair tour if you wanted!
There are so many craft fairs within twenty minutes of each other. I like to wander and find craft fairs with unique food and craft items.
What is your favorite craft fair venue? Add a photo if you like for us to admire the handiwork of locals. One of these days I'd like to try a craft fair luncheon. I'll take suggestions for this too...
P.S. I just learned a cookie walk is when there are a selection of cookies you can choose from to put in a bag to take home along a row of tables.
St. Nicholas Bazaar at Holy Trinity Church in Springfield, VT. 8 am - 12 pm. As a parishioner, I can speak to this bazaar personally. There are homemade crafts, wreathes, and tasty goodies. Every year I get pierogies, golumpkis, and some fudge. The braided breads, pies, and other unique baked goods always tempt me, but there's only so much food I should take home. My gram and I have golumpkis meal together every year as her Christmas gift. This bazaar is a find. People flock to this bazaar every year and come out with boxes of stuff. Come early. Here are some photos from last year.
