Tenth Annual Festival of Lights Crafts Faire, Silent Auction & Cookie Extravaganza at Unity Spiritual Enrichment Center!
Festival of Lights celebrates ten years of festive holiday shopping on Friday Dec. 6th, Saturday Dec. 7th and Sunday, Dec. 8th at Unity Spiritual Enrichment Center, 3918 San Juan Ave @ Center, in Port Townsend. The faire will be open on Friday and Saturday from 11AM to 6PM, 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 cashmere dryer balls, waxed fabric food wraps and washable storage bags, zippered travel bags, bead & driftwood mobiles, ceramic coasters, Christmas Stockings, meditation pillows, origami lights, wool mittens, a Christmas store collection of toys, games and vintage Victorian ornaments, and many 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 wintery chill!
The silent auction features 150 items donated from local businesses and service providers, including restaurants, clothing stores, jewelry, acupuncture, facials, barbers and hair stylists, yoga & yogurt; tattoos and knitting, candles, lamps, and a large oriental-style rug by Karistan. Attendees may bid on KCPT tickets, Fiddle Tunes, and PT Film Fest passes and bid on gift certificates for tarot readings and art classes by instructors from Port Townsend School of the Arts.
Psychic readers will be available throughout the weekend. Joanne Clarkson ( Palm and Tarot), will be available all three days, as will Pamela Douglas Smith (Enchanted Map Oracle), Zylpha Elliot (Healing Tarot), and Suzanne Rodgers (Tarot and Gem Stone readings). On Friday & Saturday only, Eileen Meyer offers Soul Purpose & Energetic Healing, and on Friday only, Sarah Nash will offer "Psychic Sips". The cost for readings is $40 for half an hour. Sign-ups for reading appointments will be available at the faire. No advance reservations are 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.
Admission is free.
Friday and Saturday, Dec.6 & 7 11am-6pm Sun. Dec.8 1pm-4pm
