This weekend my family and I went to the Dunbar Holiday Craft Fair. We’ve been coming here for the last 4 years and it has become a tradition for us. There were over 140 vendors showcasing their handmade crafts this year and we had a great time.
Here are a few items I purchased from the fair:
1. I just wanted to show you the nice graphics on the tickets. The adult admission is $3 and kids under 12 are free.
2. My husband actually won this wooden toy frog for our son. There is a prize draw every 15 minutes during the fair with your admission ticket.
3. Small cutting board made out of solid maple ($16) by Vancouver craftsman, Don Asperin.
4. Small porcelain pitcher ($13) by Faye Oakes.
5. I love these warming pillows or flax-filled heat packs ($10) from the Greater Van Gogos. They are so useful for sore necks and backs. A group of really nice ladies (grandmothers) make and sell these for the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign (Stephen Lewis Foundation). The funds support African grandmothers raising a generation of children orphaned by AIDS.
6. These tiny gift boxes are also made by the Greater Van Gogos. I bought a bunch, so I can put them under my mini Christmas tree.
