If you like crafts, this could be the Saturday in Barrington that you shop until you drop. Especially for some holiday gifts.
Three crafts fairs are on tap in Barrington tomorrow, Nov. 5, at just about the same time. But they are minutes apart by car, which should give you plenty of time to shop all three fairs. And grab a bite to eat while on the run.
At Barrington High School at 220 Lincoln Ave., the Interact Club holds its 6th annual arts and crafts fair. It runs from 9 am to 4 pm.
Vendors will display a variety of items, and Interact Club members will offer food and snacks. There will also be a raffle table with items donated by vendors.
Almost within sight of the high school, St. Andrew’s School at 63 Federal Road holds its second Autumn Artisan Craft Festival from 9 am to 5 pm.
Vendors from throughout New England will display a variety of handmade arts and crafts in Jones Gym. The festival is sponsored by the parents’ association.
Meanwhile, over in West Barrington, St. Matthew's Episcopal Church at 5 Chapel Road will host its annual Craft and Vendor Fair. It runs from 9 am to 3 pm.
Unique holiday gifts will be among the handcrafted items offered by vendors for sale. Members of the congregation will prepare foods in the church kitchen. And there will be a baked goods table and a raffle with items donated by crafters.
