This magnificent show features more than 40 locally (and nationally) known artisans whose work is of the highest quality. All of the crafters live and work within a 60 mile radius of Walpole, NH, bringing locally and sustainably produced options to the conscious shopper. Your purchases will go directly to supporting your neighbors’ livelihoods.
A sampling of the crafted work includes: silver jewelry, wool items, handmade wooden toys and crafts, pottery, fine beaded jewelry, traditional straw ornaments, handmade books, flannel & wool shirts & dresses, handmade baskets, photography, ironworks, chip carving, wooden rocking boats and more, all of it made within 60 miles of our Fall Mountain Region!
The fair will feature a preview of our Spring Fling raffle.
Once again, guests were also able to relax and enjoy a delicious dinner or lunch in our café, featuring homemade, healthy food made with local ingredients. This year’s menu will include handmade quiche, salad and two types of chili. All proceeds from the Raffle and Cafe directly benefit The Orchard School’s programs. Further, the event features local musicians throughout the day on Saturday.
