Be enchanted by the fun and exciting array of home made gift items at the 17th All Saints’ Episcopal Church’s Fine Arts & Crafts Fair Saturday, November 17. The majority of the artisans will be at the lower level between Dolores and Lincoln at 9th, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Be sure to catch the baked goods on the upper level too! The Crafts Fair is strategically located between the Homecrafters Marketplace at Sunset Center on San Carlos (two blocks west) and the Holiday Faire at Wayfarer Church on Lincoln (two blocks north), offering you a “triple crown” of art fairs all within a few blocks of one another!! All Saints’ artisans will be in Seccombe Hall and the lower patio off Lincoln. The Fair will be held rain or shine!
We will once again have the help of our near neighbor, St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church, who shares our campus. The joint venture increases the bountiful bake sale sweets and will include everyone’s favorite, Greek pastries! Our chefs will be back grilling on the lower patio, so there will be delicious hot sausage meals for purchase. With the hustle and bustle of the upcoming holidays, we look forward to making your shopping easier by announcing the participants of our Fine Arts and Craft Fair. All items are carefully handcrafted.
All Saints’ Church will sell delicious, packaged desserts to eat on the run or taken home to eat, saving you time before or during the holidays. We also welcome you to attend Sunday services with us or to visit special events.
