Outstanding local crafters will show their wares at the Sixth Annual Artisans' Fair from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, May 25, at Lord Baltimore Elementary School, Ocean View.
This spacious, air-conditioned setting will feature invitation-only artisans who create unique artwork, photography, jewelry, pottery, apparel and accessories, ceramics, wooden items, painted furniture and much more.
Proceeds from the fair, sponsored by the South Coastal Delaware AARP chapter, will provide scholarships for area high school students and scholarships for adults looking to continue their education or training.
“We want to achieve three things with this event,” said Event Chair Ione Phillips of Ocean View. “First, we want to provide a showcase for talented artisans from the area. Second, we want to support our young people because we understand that they represent the future of our area and the nation. Third, we want to support adults who find the need for more education in order to compete in this challenging job market.”
Some 60 exhibitors will include both seasoned professionals and those who are just beginning to show their creations.The popular auction features some of the best of the artisans’ creations. Many of the chapter’s 600 members provide delicious home-baked goods for one of the area’s largest and most popular bake sales, and attendees can also enjoy a wide range of food and drink items for sale.
Admission to the show is free, and plenty of free parking will be available at the school on Route 26 in Ocean View, two miles west of Coastal Highway.
