Arts & Crafts Fair for Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse on Dec. 6

Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse will be holding a Holiday Arts & Crafts Fair on Sunday, December 6, from 9 to 3, at the Casey Function Center, 1950 Lafayette Road (Route 1) in Portsmouth, NH. You're invited to take part!

Are you an artist or photographer, or do you create some kind of craft items? If you have arts/crafts items you'd like to sell, we'd love to have you as a vendor for this event. The cost for a table will be $20, and a minimum of 25% of all proceeds must be donated to Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse.

If you're an artist or photographer, we encourage you to have plenty of low-cost items like small prints and note cards. If you bring larger paintings or photographic prints, they'll need to be kept to a small number and you'll need to bring easels, etc., to display them.

If you're interested in having a table, please email and describe what kind of merchandise you'll be selling. This event will be combined with Casey's usual Sunday flea market, which is generally very well attended during the Christmas season. We'll also be publicizing it in the local media and online.

This is a chance to help us in our mission to preserve our lighthouses, and to have fun and make some money at the same time.

We hope to hear from you soon -- space is limited!
