Epiphany Christmas Fair continues 30-year tradition
By Shukong Ou
The Parish of the Epiphany continues a 30-year tradition of an annual Christmas Fair on Saturday, Nov. 18 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, 70 Church Street, Winchester. Browse through a variety of unique and beautifully crafted, warm, and cozy gifts, and support this tradition spanning three decades.
In addition to items created by skilled and talented parishioners at the knit and craft tables, works of art by parish artist John McConnell will be on display. Returning this year are gifts by Studio on the Common, mittens by Cashmere Resewn, jewelry by Mei Mei of Lexington, pottery by Christa Bennett, and jewelry by Linda Preston. Choose from costume jewelry and White Elephant treasures of the past, among many other finds. Our non-profits this year include Holy Nativity Convent (candles), Haiti Peace Quilts, the American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, Unite with Light, and Food for Fido. To entertain the kids while you shop, check out the Kids' Store for a "kids only" holiday shopping experience (no adults allowed!) where children can purchase family gifts, some crafts, and children’s books.
This year’s Silent Auction will have items such as tickets to sporting and cultural events plus festive baskets. We will also sell homemade apple pies, lemon curd, jams, and bread and butter pickles. All this in addition to cookies, breads, and treats for the holidays available at the bake table which make great housewarming gifts. The café will offer a delicious menu and a pleasant place to gather with family and friends.
