Over 45 vendors will offer a large variety of merchandise, crafts and gifts.  There is sure to be something for everyone in the Christmas Shoppe

For the second year in a row, five fabulous homemade soups will be available as part of a Soup Fest at lunchtime. Come early – these soups sell out quickly! Baked goods and lunch will be available for purchase, too.  

Also, this year local author Laura Sassi will present Children’s Story Time with puppets from 10:30am to 12:30pm (in 20-minute sessions), so bring your children. With the help of a couple of skunk puppets and a rooster, she will be sharing her debut picture book GOODNIGHT, ARK, as well as her new holiday book GOODNIGHT, MANGER, both published by Zonderkidz, a HarperCollins Company, and illustrated by New York Times bestselling illustrator Jane Chapman. Books will be available for purchase for her to sign and personalize just in time for Christmas! (Purchase is not required for children to attend. Parents must stay with their child.)

The Cranford High School Madrigals will also perform.  So come early and stay for the most fun and best selection.

Skip the mall, the crowds and the hassles and join us for a great day of unique shopping! 

The event will take place in the church's education building at 201 Lincoln Avenue, corner of Walnut and Lincoln Avenues, Cranford.
