If you want to get into the holiday spirit and do something fun with your kids this weekend, stop by the Waldorf Holiday Fair in Chestnut Hill/Mount Airy. There are a ton of really fun crafts for your kids to do (including making a jump rope) while you begin your holiday shopping. This fair is also a great place for kids to shop – all of the vendors are selling original, one of a kind crafts that are extremely affordable. And one more thing: if you like vegetarian food, the food for sale is entirely homemade and delicious.
Lisa Kelley and Loretta Borko are two of the vendors that I know and admire. Lisa is a member of MamaCita. She makes clocks, prints, notebooks and buttons out of her graphic, whimsical designs.
Loretta Borko (my sister) makes felted dolls to hang from your Christmas tree or to collect. Each doll is different and intricately decorated. People go ga-ga over these dolls (as they should!).
Hours of Admission: Friday, November 18th, 6 pm – 10pm. Featuring live music and gourmet food for adults. Admission is free. Saturday, November 19th, 10 – 5pm. Featuring children’s crafts, performances, and homemade food for the entire family. $5 admission for adults, children under 14 are free.
The Waldorf School is located at 7500 Germantown Avenue, Eagles 2 Building in Mt. Airy. (Right across the street from the Trolley Car Diner.)
