Getting in a Christmas kind of mood at annual craft fair

Golden will be treated to two days of shopping and fun times at the 2012 Christmas Craft Fair.

Once again the winter season is upon Golden which means the area will be treated to two days of shopping and fun times at the 2012 Christmas Craft Fair.

The event will be held at the Mount 7 Rec Plex on Nov. 16-17, and will be open from noon until 8p.m. on the Friday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the Saturday.

Thelma Brown is one of the organizers of the event  and this year there will be over 60 vendors and artisans  taking part.

“It is a social event. Everyone is out doing their Christmas shopping from little children with quarters clutched in their hand that want to find something worth that money, to elderly people who have been coming to the fair since it started,” Brown said.

One of the nice parts of the event is the fact that there is a great mix of new vendors as well as vendors who come back every year.

“It is a place where you can visit with friends and have an introduction to the Christmas season,” Brown said. “It is a good way to support local artists and see some new art and crafts from out of town.”

Everything at the fair, from the baking, knitting, sewing and painting, is created by hand.

Brown added there will also be beautiful photographs and jewelry for everyone to look at and enjoy.

“There is a lot of good energy. The big winter season has not started yet so the community is here and people make connections at the event,” she said.

There is no charge to get in but people can make a donation at the door.
