Historical craft fair offers something different

Dunvegan will be busy with shoppers who will be returning for the hamlet’s popular craft fair, a nod to a simpler era.

This well-loved little craft show was started as a yearly fundraiser four years ago to support the Dunvegan Recreation Association and their volunteers for their efforts to the Glengarry Pioneer Museum. “It is our way of giving-back, for their generosity to provide tireless volunteers that staff a food concession at museum events such as the War of 1812 Reenactment”, says Jim Mullin in a statement announcing the craft show. Mullin is the chairperson of the reenactment and co-owner of The Chocolate Box, which is hosting the show.

A variety of vendors showcasing their historically inspired designs and trades of early Ontario settlers will offer shoppers unique items not found at a typical craft show. Silhouette artist, Jillian Metcalfe, will be returning with her A-Head-of-the- Times Portrait Studio. Fresh, traditional green Christmas wreaths and other natural greenery will also be available. Also included this year will be a popular candle seller, maple syrup, honey, leather goods, recycled silver jewelry, hand-forged iron goods, primitive candlesticks and wooden ornaments, preserves as well as locally handcrafted chocolate.

The Historical Crafters Fair runs on Saturday December 3, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  and Sunday, December 4, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.. There is no entry fee bu t donations to the Dunvegan Recreation Association are greatly appreciated. The Dunvegan Recreation Hall is located at 19053 Dunvegan Road 24 in Dunvegan, Ontario.
