The Farmington Woman’s Club Craft and Pie Fair will be at Henry Wilson Memorial School, Farmington, NH on Sunday, November 19th this year. This is this their sixth year!

Approximately 50 vendors will be offering handmade products, in addition to crafts they will have a variety of homemade holiday pies for sale. They will have numerous items at their raffle table, a gift wrapping station.  Proceeds will benefit their Community Service and Scholarship Fund. The event starts at 9am, and from experience I know if you want one of the delicious pies, and believe me you do, you need to come early in the day!

I’m always impressed with their fair and how many people it brings to Farmington. I’ll have a double booth this time. I’ll be selling some of the Happiness Tree Decor items; trees, topiaries, baskets, and cornucopia for fall I’ll also have some of my holiday wreathes & swags. Most of the space will be for my paintings, collage work, monoprints, and some of my photography. Please come down that day and support local artists and craftspeople.
