Great gifts at the fair
NOT looking forward to fighting for a car park and walking for hours through packed shopping centres in search of the perfect, yet unique, Christmas present for that special someone?
Come along to the Emerald State School craft and gift fair on the weekend at the Emerald Town Hall with about 60 stalls.
The fair is ideal for those looking to find Christmas gifts that have a personal touch.
The craft fair will open tonight at a gala evening, which is an 18+ event, starting from 7.30pm.
Tickets are $27 and must be pre-purchased from Family Footwear, although get in quick as coordinator of the Emerald State School craft and gift fair Renee Firth said there were only a few tickets left.
“Come and enjoy hassle-free Christmas shopping with gourmet finger foods and refreshments, while the kids are home with the sitter,” she said.
Saturday is the “always popular” family day, starting early from 8.30am until 2.30pm with tickets costing $5.
Each class has made items for sale, all in the Christmas theme, and the P&C is presenting the popular School Lane range which includes calendars, jams and chutney and the cook book launched last year will again be available.
“(The fair is) a celebration of craft from around Queensland including jewellery, shells, books and garden ornaments,” Renee said.
“Enjoy time with friends shopping for items that may not be available locally, for the Christmas gift that is unique.”
There is also a raffle with 10 prizes to be won, including first prize of $1000.
