Kick start your holiday shopping at The Friends of East Orange Public Library’s Annual Craft Bazaar on Saturday, November 17 from 10 am - 4 pm in the East Orange Room of the Main Library. Be one of the discerning collectors or serious holiday shoppers drawn to this fun Bazaar!
Being held for the third year now, the Bazaar has become THE place to shop for one-of-a-kind items offered by skilled artisans from throughout the community. Prominently featured are crafters from the Library’s own Jewelry Making Classes and In Stitches Knitting and Crochet Club who have offered their speciality items at the event each year.
Other crafters have included those with handmade candles, dolls, tote bags, pocketbooks, table runners, greeting cards, keepsake books, paintings and home décor, just to name a few.
The event helps support the Library’s children and teen programs and services while animating the arts scene and boosting the economy of local crafters.
