Kid-made Art and Wares Wanted Island children invited to sell their crafts

Saturday, November 25, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., Salmonberry School

— from Sharon Ho —

It’s that time of year again. The 5th Children’s Christmas Market will be taking place the Saturday after Thanksgiving and kindly hosted by Salmonberry School. Located on Henry Road, the Children’s Market will be across the street from the Senior Center Holiday Festival that takes place that same Saturday.

Any Orcas Island child from the ages of 5 – 18, from any school, or home schooled, is invited to sell their hand crafted wares at this festive children’s market. Previous years’ markets have been a treasure trove of greeting cards, hand carved toys, felted and knitted wares, beach glass art, salvaged art, baked goods, and sweet surprises, all starting from 25 cents. This year, the maximum price has been raised to $10. All work is handmade, local, and affordable.

A $5 fee gets you a small table (a school desk, about 1.5 ft x 2 ft) and a chair to display and sell your wares. Slightly larger tables are offered at $7.50 and are limited in supply, so book a spot early.

For safety reasons, selling of hot food that requires cooking on site, or plugging in to an electric socket will not be considered.

For young artists who are interested in selling their work, the Children’s Christmas Market is a fun showcase and opportunity to meet other young crafters on Orcas. Please contact Rachel Bishop at 360 376 5003 or to reserve a table.
