Oola Body Care owner Mary Murphy is successful in part because she listens to her clients. And when her clients said they would be interested in attending a small-scale holiday craft fair, Murphy started the process.
“I’ve had a lot of people approach me and ask what venues I am going to be at for the Christmas season,” said Murphy. “I am only going to be at one major one – the Cumberland Winter Faire – but I thought there are a lot of people who want to support local artisans, who would like to buy gifts, but don’t want to go to a large venue with many, many vendors and many, many people. So I thought, why not create a small but mighty little craft fair.”
The Little Craft Faire That Could, which will be limited to six or seven artisans, will take place on Saturday, Dec. 4 at Dove Creek Hall (3400 Burns Road) from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
“There will be quite a wide array of things, from body care to candles to prints and ceramics,” said Murphy. “There will only be six vendors, but all the vendors are very diverse, with many products.”
Sue Pyper will have her art cards, as well as some of her spectacular art pieces for sale.
Blooming Barn will be on hand with stunning holiday wreaths, including some miniature ones that owner Fiona Van Housen calls “doornaments.”
The fair will be following all COVID protocols. All shoppers must be masked and there will be limited access (maximum 50 people inside at any time).
“I will have someone at the door to make sure people are masked and will stay masked,” said Murphy. “As per the rules as long as we don’t exceed 50 people, we don’t require proof of vaccination.”
