Harrison Elementary PTA Second Annual Holiday Craft Show
It may only be November, but it’s time to start thinking about the holidays.
Harrison Elementary PTA will help people get a jump on their holiday shopping during the Second Annual Holiday Craft Show, 9:00 a.m. to 3 p.m., on Saturday, November 19. The Craft Show will be held in the Harrison Elementary School gymnasium, 2080 Quail Avenue.
Harrison PTA began this tradition last year as a way to bring holiday shopping closer to home for our school community. The idea is to provide a place for local crafters and local home business owners to sell within their own community for a great cause! The table fees and all proceeds from food sales will go towards field trips, school supplies, and educational enhancements for the students of Harrison Elementary.
Last year 30 crafters and home-based businesses answered the call to sell their items to benefit the children of Harrison Elementary School. This year we hope to get even more. Some of the confirmed crafters to date include makers of jewelry, knitted and crocheted crafts, leather crafts, ornaments, and hair accessories. Home-based businesses planning to sell their wares include Avon, Scentsy, Thirty-one and Mary Kay.
Admission to Harrison PTA’s Holiday Craft Show is free and open to the public. There is a raffle planned that will include items donated by some of our crafters and home-based businesses. Raffle items may be reviewed and raffle tickets may be purchased during the Craft Show. Food items, including baked goods donated by Harrison Elementary staff and parents, may be purchased during the Craft Show.
The Harrison PTA would love the Craft Show to be your one-stop holiday gift center. “Buy Local” is the new rallying cry to help our economy here in Northeast Ohio, so with that in mind, stop by any time between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. on November 19. You can cross some “to buy fors” off your holiday shopping list while supporting our elementary school and local business owners.
I am on the board of the Harrison Elementary PTA.
