Our church held its first-ever Christmas Market today -- a fundraiser for the preschool. More than 20 vendors set up booths with handmade items. I was really just going to lend moral support to the project and to get the kids out of the house, but I ended up lugging home a lot of loot.
I can't resist cheap beaded earrings. These were $2.
Handmade notecards and a bookmark by one of our fellow parishioners.
A small book of handmade paper, perfect for stuffing into a special stocking.
Gift bags sewn up from upholstery fabric scraps. I'm keeping at least the green one for a sock project bag.
Autumnal sachets, four for $3.
And locally-produced dip mixes. Who will be lucky enough to get the habernero, I wonder?
