One of the oldest and best-established craft fairs in New England is back in Northampton this weekend.
The 38th annual Northampton Winter Craft Fair kicked off at Northampton High School Saturday morning. The two-day long fair showcases quality handmade goods from nearly 100 artists.
From jewelry and ceramics to woodwork, there’s something for everyone. Also new this year: specialty foods.
CHD Big Brothers and Sisters Director Jessie Cooley told 22News, “This raises really essential funds each year for us, and it’s also just a really fun community event that exposes the community to Big Brothers and Sisters.”
All proceeds from this weekend’s craft fair will support CHD’s Big Brothers and Sisters of Hampshire County, a program that has provided one-to-one mentoring relationships to local youth for over 40 years.
