More than 25 local crafters will gather at the Athens-Limestone County Public Library Saturday, December 1, 10:00am to 2:00pm, selling homemade soaps, jewelry, knitted items and more. With Christmas just around the corner, the library’s Winter Craft Fair is the perfect opportunity to pick up a one-of-a-kind gift for someone special.
This is the first craft fair the library has hosted. “We moved into a much larger building several years ago, and we’re still thinking of things we can do in this space,” says Kristopher Reisz, the library’s head of events and programs. “We’ve been really floored by the response so far to our craft fair idea.” Vendors slated to come to the craft fair include Sheer Pleasures Soapworks, Wild Arrow Designs, and TreeTop Terrariums. Admission to the craft fair is free. In addition, all attendees can enter to win door prizes.
