Benefit Craft Fair – Nov. 20-21, 2015


Our Traditional Crafts Fair will again please the crowds at The Walpole Town Hall, Walpole, NH November 20 and 21, 2015. The juried Fair is always a wonderful event! Thank you to the community of volunteers, musicians, set up and clean up crew and to Kroka Expeditions for providing a shuttle for the day. There are too many specific people to list here without making an omission, and that, is the magic of community, come to life!

In 2015 the fair will be held on Friday, November 20, from 6-8:30pm and Saturday, November 21, from 9:30am-3:30pm.   The show will once again feature more than 40 locally (and nationally) known artisans whose work is of the highest quality.   All of the crafters live and work within a 40 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, flannel & wool shirts & dresses, photography, woodwork, metal work, carvings and more.   Something for everyone on your wish list, and all of it made within 40 miles of our Fall Mountain Region!

Local musicians will provide entertainment throughout the day on Saturday. We will not be hosting a full cafe this year, but are asking Orchard School families and community members to donate goodies for a “bake sale” table. All proceeds benefit The Orchard School.

All your holiday shopping needs can be cared for with Locally produced goods in one day!

The following are the current list of vendors for the 2015 show.  You can check out some of our crafters’ sites to get an idea about all the amazing products and crafts available at this beloved event.
