Wordless Wednesday ~ Christmas Fair

Last Saturday the County CFEL Ladies hosted the annual Christmas Fair.  This is a fundraiser for CFEL scholarships.

Decor made from rope.

These local ladies sew and sell food items.

The Christmas Fair Chairwoman said that there were 39 booths and several new vendors at this year’s event.  Attendees enjoyed seeing a variety of hand crafted items.  Hand sewn creations, cards, foods, jams, jellies, jewelry, and engraved rocks attracted and entertained shoppers.

I helped in the lunch stand over the noon hour.  Wow were we busy!  The famous “walking tacos” were a hit again this year.  A roast beef or ham plate (sandwich, baked beans and chips) was also offered.  Each member donates pie for the lunch stand; the assortment of made from scratch pies was fantastic.  I made Dixie Pie and Raspberry Glazed Cheesecake.

This event gives the community an opportunity to do some holiday shopping, visit with friends, and enjoy a delicious meal.

Jewelry is a big hit at the fair!

The CFEL Ladies would like to thank everyone who attended the Christmas Fair.  It’s your support of this event that makes it a success year after year.

    That looks like a really fun day and for a worthy cause, too.

    I wanted to let you know that I am taking over the Improv Challenge that was left without a leader when Sheryl dropped out of the blog world last Sunday. I see that you were signed up to join us and wanted to invite you to continue. Email me at frugalantics(at)yahoo(dot)com if you are interested. I hope to hear from you.

    You have your version of the bazaar, too! Looks like you have more “crafty” stuff than we do. Back when my mother-in-law was alive, she was the queen of holiday decor. I miss that part!

    I want to thank everyone who purchased items from the Bison Public Library booth. We did pretty well, raised money for the library and hope to use the money to purchase some adult books. Thank you Robyn for your help with the fair too.

    My sister-in-law makes the rope baskets. I keep mine in my bathroom filled with my perfumes. I love craft fairs–I can see what’s new or popular and always go home inspired to do start some homemade projects for Christmas gifts. I’ve been sewing up aprons like they had at the Women In Ag conference for my girlfriends (and myself).
