What’s Selling at the Shaker Christmas Craft Fair?

Hi there! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty full. On Friday, I had the pleasure of lunch with my sweet friend, Nancy, after loading up my craft booth that morning with more vintage handmade merchandise.

On Saturday, my sweet husband and I took a surprise trip to visit my daughter after we learned that one of her dance troupes would be performing that night. They danced amazingly, of course.

Yesterday we spent with my sweet mother who is moving apartments soon. We toured her new senior apartment complex (2 exits closer to us, yay!). It’s going to be a very good move for her.

With all of that going on I nonetheless managed to put together today’s post about the Shaker Christmas Craft Fair that I sell at every year. Let me show you some of the delightful handmade goods that talented local artisans have offered for sale this year.

Pottery

Several booths contain unique pottery gift possibilities.

Vintage

My favorite category, of course(!), but other than my booth, there are just a few token vintage crafts here and there at the show.

vintage canning jarLike this canning jar filled with red glass bulbs. I would never have guessed how attractive that color combination could be.

Here’s my 3′ x 6′ booth, though I’ve been able to “push the margins” this year because there was a no-show immediately adjacent to my booth.

willow basket
I just brought over this half-melon willow basket with hydrangeas a few days ago. It was hard to part with, but once again, I must speak the solemn truth: You can’t keep everything!

Shortly, I’ll write a post focusing on my booth and the vintage projects I have for sale there. Hope you have a great week!

  1. I so love handmade things, and so many of these are just superb, Diana. It must be a great show. I would really look forward to it – small enough yet varied enough.

  2. Love seeing all the wares, but even more wish I could be there to browse! Wishing you lots of good sales Diana! Your booth does look quite attractive.

  3. I love all the unique items and would really enjoy browsing around to see your booth and all of it! Hoping you do well.

  4. Your booth looks great. It is very inviting and I would love to shop there. I bet you bet you don’t bring home a thing.

  5. I am looking forward to hearing and seeing more. I always get some good ideas from your projects and I love the way you style your booth.

  6. Yay! I FINALLY was able to get he photos to come up! I’m so excited! Many beautiful offerings. I guess I was clicking on the wrong link or something. When I clicked on the one at the bottom of the Day 2 (today) post I went right to the “what’ s selling?” post. Anyway, I got to see all the lovely things. One of my favorites is the large blue Mason jar filled with red tree ornaments. Love it! Boy, if lived closer I’d be at that Christmas Fair!

    Thanks for posting all that eye candy, Diana!
