With some of the best shopping this side of the Mississippi, the L.A. County Fair is the place to find that one-of-a-kind gift. During the Arts and Crafts Village weekends, Fairguests will be given ample opportunity to do some early holiday shopping for unique items. This year’s Fair runs Sept. 10-26.
The Arts and Crafts Village Weekends opens Sept. 10-12 on Redwood Street, on the side of Fairplex 4, and thereafter on Sept. 18-19 and Sept. 25-26. Items for sale are all handmade and range from toiletries to decorative goodies for the home.
Looking for a real feel-good item? Try eucalyptus oil, said to be good for healing. Or try some pampering with goat milk soap.
La Verne crafter Millie Jones will be selling life-like dolls and taking special orders. Handmade afghans will also be available. Yard décor is always popular. Padilla’s Patio and Décor of Chino is just the place to stop. If they don’t have what you’re looking for, try Ron’s Wood for handcrafted yard signs and mailboxes.
Jeff and John Price, who recently premiered their work at the Sawdust Festival in Laguna Beach, will present their jewelry, pots and pins at the 2004 Fair. Also new to the Fair is Tagua Nut, a vegetable ivory, used to make jewelry, buttons and statues.
A great place to purchase a handcrafted gift, the Arts and Crafts Village Weekends combines innovative fun with unparalled flavor to the L.A. County Fair.
