We’re almost to the end of another year again. This is the time when people typically become nostalgic; looking at the past and all the things that have changed, not only in their lifetime but in the lifetimes of their forebears. We take comfort in the fact that some things really will never change. While clothing styles and tastes in decor may change with the generation or even the year, some things will always be a constant. Knitting will always be knitting; crocheting will always be crocheting; wood carving will always be wood carving.
Well, it’s time once again for the annual Winter Wonderland Craft Fair at Davis Elementary. The Winter Wonderland Craft Fair is a benefit event for the Emmaus soup kitchen, which helps underprivileged people throughout the Malone area. It’s a good charity, and we’re happy to support it.
This year, I’ll be bringing my famous wood crafts. I’ll, of course, be bringing my pyrographed boxes, which are an ever-popular item, my hand-carved walking sticks, figurines, wood signage, pyrographed spoons, and a few new items which I’m sure you’ll be interested in seeing soon.
For the Winter Wonderland Craft Fair, my sister, TK, decided to set my sights a little lower. She usually brings a load of her famous repaired toys, but she finds that that much stuff overwhelms people with all the other tables around, so she changed my tactics. She focused instead on her bags, which are popular for stocking stuffers, and some new bedding items. She has a selection of handmade blankets and character pillows in bright colors for the little ones. She believes in making things for kids that are visually stimulating to look at, lots of bright colors and patterns. But don’t take my word for it, come out and see for yourself!
It’s sure to be a good time for everyone, and I’d love to see you there. If you can’t make it, don’t despair; any items left from the sale will be posted on Bonanza! But we’d still really like to see you all there.
T.K. here with some very exciting news: Our new Bonanza store is now open! That's right, we now have a digital storefront on the newest shopping platform for makers and artisans.
Bonanza is such a wonderful platform. It is very simple to use and has a very similar layout to Ebay. All you need to do is search for what you're looking for, select your price and other parameters, and find what you need. You can find all kinds of wonderful goodies for all ages and all kinds of people in your life. I even located some Bigfoot memorabilia that I was sorely tempted to purchase for my brother.
Right now, Tabitha's Mountain Rhapsody has several beautiful My Little Pony collectibles I restored for sale in the shop, with more coming soon. While they are not rare figures, they are all complete and have all the pieces to the playsets, we were very fortunate to have them all. The item I am proudest of is the Princess Cadence toy. I designed her wedding gown myself!
