On December 4 and 5 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., Houghton College will be hosting its 26th annual Christmas Arts and Crafts Fair.  Vendors from across Western New York will be selling pottery, jewelry, baked goods, soaps, garlands, wreaths, and much more in the Reinhold Campus Center.   Houghton students are also contributing handmade jewelry, letterpress prints, and ornaments to the fair. 

Each year the Arts and Crafts Fair is held the first week of December, and provides students and community members with a unique opportunity to find something special for the holidays.   Rachel Meier, Houghton College senior, advises “it’s a fantastic place to Christmas shop, the variety is amazing, and you can’t find better quality.”

The fair represents a solid opportunity for the vendors as well.  It costs a mere $10.00 to reserve a booth for both days and the fair provides exposure to hundreds of shoppers.  There are still several openings remaining for vendors.
