Ninth Annual Festival of Lights Crafts Faire and Cookie Extravaganza at Unity Spiritual Enrichment Center!
The ninth annual Festival of Lights brightens holiday shopping on Friday Nov. 30th, Saturday Dec. 1st and Sunday, Dec. 2nd at Unity Spiritual Enrichment Center, 3918 San Juan Ave @ Center, in Port Townsend. The faire will be open on Friday from 12PM to 6PM, Saturday from 10AM to 5PM, and Sunday from 1PM-4PM. This popular seasonal event offers a warm holiday atmosphere, where locally made gifts, crafts and cookies can be purchased for holiday giving, and fabulous offerings from merchants – both local and further afield – can be won in the prolific Silent Auction.
Handmade items being offered this year include wool dryer balls, waxed fabric wraps for leftovers, cloth produce bags, crocheted dish scrubbies, stuffed woolen owls, mosaic labyrinths, wool mittens, yard art, a Christmas store collection of toys, games and ornaments, and other unique gifts.
Always the highlight of the Festival, there will be a mouth-watering and abundant array of freshly baked cookies for sale by the dozen – or by the piece to enjoy on the spot with hot coffee. To sustain shoppers, a variety of homemade soups and hot beverages will be available for a modest price to chase away the winter chill!
A huge Silent Auction offers an eclectic selection of items to bid on for gift-giving or for personal enjoyment. Whether you are looking for acupuncture or wine tasting for 10; a pizza every month for a year or a bag of coffee a month for 6 months; psychic readings or mani-pedis and facials; a night in North Beach or a banana split at Don’s; vintage jewelry or RV detailing….the list goes on and on and you'll find it all as you enter the Festival of Lights.
Psychic readers will be available throughout the weekend. Joanne Clarkson, Palm and Tarot readings, will be available all three days of the faire, as will Pamela Douglas Smith, Wisdom of Avalon Oracle Deck readings, Zylpha Elliot, Card readings, and Suzanne Rodgers, Tarot and Crystal readings. On Saturday only, Daphne White Rose will give Psychic Energy readings, and on Sunday only, Sarah Nash will offer Tarot and other Oracle readings., The cost for readings is $40 for half an hour and $60 dollars for an hour. Sign-ups for reading appointments will be available at the faire. Advance reservations are not available.
As in years past, the Festival of Lights will donate 10% of all sales – including proceeds from the Silent Auction – to Port Townsend’s Winter Shelter, in support of the important work they do, helping the homeless in our community.
Admission is free.
