What fun! I have just a few more gifts to pick up and hope to make it to Unison's 7th annual Holiday Crafts Fair at the New Paltz Middle School, 196 Main Street, New Paltz, on Saturday or Sunday. That's where you can buy gallery-quality handcrafted gift items, ceramics, jewelry, leatherwork, woodwork, children's clothing, wreaths, blown glass and more from 50 master craftspeople and fine artists. This takes place this weekend from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. -- $3 adult admission (includes raffle ticket) and free admission for children.
A few of the participating artists:
Hot Stuff Blown Glass - Kevin Van Buren Photography - Brad Kato Pottery - Rain Barrel Soap - The Hat Junkie - Grey Mouse Farm - Kaete Brittin Shaw - Louis Booth Jewelry - Art & Sole Dolls
