GAMBIER — The 49th Annual Gambier Craft Sale, Sunday, Dec. 3, 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Kenyon Athletic Center. A beloved Gambier tradition is around the corner for more than 1,500 local and statewide shoppers, as well as over 90 crafts persons and artists. The sale is one of Ohio’s biggest indoor markets.
Coordinator Joyce Klein, one of the original creators, said, “There is something for everyone. We are so proud of the quality, craftsmanship and originality of our new and returning crafts people.”
There are a wide variety of crafts for sale. Among those are silver and crystal jewelry, wood craft including furniture and bowls, clothes toys and dolls, hand and wheel thrown pottery, cakes, pies, cookies and Christmas decorations.
In addition, a number of non profit organizations participate. Psi Iota Xi sells lunches to benefit scholarships, Girl Scouts are baking cookies, (last year they contributed a large amount to the cat shelter), Friends of the Quarry Chapel and the Old Creek Conservancy sell note cards, posters and photos. The Humane Society will be selling cat toys.
There will also be a free raffle (each shopper gets free tickets) and the prizes are donated by the crafts people.
