FLEMINGTON — The leaves have changed color and started their peaceful descent from the trees and a cold has started to fill the air, reminding residents that winter is coming soon to the area.
Often during this time of year, individuals look to the upcoming holiday season and start looking forward to craft shows as a way to find the perfect handmade and homemade gift locally.
Residents won’t have to look any further, as Flemington Events and Festivals is proud to announce that they will be hosting a Craft and Vendor Fair this Saturday, November 6th.
The festivities are scheduled for 9:00 a.m. and show guests will be treated to not only creative creations, but also delicious treats until 4:00 p.m.
“Make sure you come hungry, as we’ll be serving bean and cornbread soup, as well as hot dogs and corndogs,” said Vicki Greathouse, member of Flemington Events and Festivals. “Food will be available on site and to take away. “
The Craft Fair will have something for everyone with confirmations from artisans and craftspeople offering different work supports, as well as some sellers from well-known businesses.
“We have primitives, wreaths, woodwork, homemade dog treats, handcrafted jewelry and so much more,” Greathouse commented.
And not only will the fair be the perfect place for individuals to start their Christmas shopping early, Flemington Events and Festivals will also be offering a raffle that will include various gift baskets.
