The Westfield High School Band Boosters will host its annual holiday craft show Nov. 18. With more than 150 vendors, the event runs from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. inside the Multi-purpose Instructional Facility of the high school, 18250 N. Union St.
“We only accept handcrafted items. You’re not going to find merchandisers here,” said Maura Clark, vendor director for the Band Booster Holiday Craft Show. “This is a fundraiser for the band at the high school. We use this for everything from new instruments to competitions and travel costs.”
This year, the guard is offering a free coat check at the door and options for gift wrapping.
“We have vendors from all over the state and out of the state,” Clark said. “We will be offering seasonal items, including snowmen and more.”
Crafters will be on hand with fine jewelry, woodwork, pottery, clothes, dog bedding and clothing, among other items. Clark said a few vendors will be working in each specific area.
Twenty vendors will work on jewelry, from beading to silver. High-end furniture and $10 bracelets are among the offerings.
“There is so much diversity,” Clark said. “You can find anything you are looking for, something for everyone. This is marketing for (the vendors). Even if someone does not buy something, they still have that name-recognition. We have the whole gambit of price points.”
Vendors also will sell toys and wooden games, among other items.
A concession stand outside the MPIF will sell pizza and Chick-fil-A sandwiches. For more, visit westfieldbandboosters.org/craft_show.html.
