Local’s the word lately – more craft fairs!
Yeah, didn’t you notice how much the words “buy local” are being used these days? Of course! It makes sense: support your community, and your community will prosper. Buy local, eat local, grow local, do local. And this means staying away from huge international chains. Yes, there’s a lot to be said for them, but try, try, try to stay away and support your local farmers, craftsmen, shops, etc.
In that spirit, here are two more craft fairs I know of this coming weekend. I’m sure there are more! Add on, if you like:
Shop, Rock & Roll: Girls Rock Philly and Mew Gallery present their combo craft sale at the Old Pine Community Center (401 Lombard) on Saturday, December 13, 2-6 p.m. Bands included. Sliding donation of $5-10.
The New Studio Holiday Bazaar: The New Studio (1241 Carpenter St., 3rd floor) has a fair selling gifts & goodies for mind, body, & spirit. Snacks. Friday, December 12, 7-10 p.m. and Saturday, December 13, 1-5 p.m.
