SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – Kick off your Christmas shopping at Springfield’s version of a super mall with 95 vendors showcasing their unique and unusual creations at the Beyond the Unicorn Christmas Craft Fair at Riverside Middle School, Route 11, in Springfield, Vt. on Saturday, Dec. 2. The show will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will host a large array of artisans and crafters from all over New England, New Jersey, and New York.

Vendors are selected based on the diversity and quality of their creations, including: bath and body products, candles, hand painted items, glass items, pottery, lighted objects, ceramics, country crafts, deerskin gloves and accessories, photography, postcards, cards, wooden toys, clocks, jewelry, and other unusual items.

There will be Christmas decorations galore; holiday centerpieces, snowmen, Santas, and wreaths. An author will be present with her mystery books and related items as well as locally created cookbooks. Children’s specialty items such as hair bows and ties, tutus, and pewter animals will abound. New this year, are metal, copper and stainless steel garden ornaments as well as window hangings and sculptures.

Springfield High School students will provide face painting, and Clown Purple will turn her balloons into adorable little creatures for the children. Outside you will find fresh balsam wreaths and a kettle corn popper will fill the air with the aroma of freshly popped corn! You’re sure to find gifts for everyone. The alumni chefs will serve a continental breakfast and lunch, and two raffles will be ongoing throughout the day.

Don’t miss this opportunity to support local vendors and the Springfield High School Alumni Association with our largest fundraiser. This event helps to support our annual weekend activities as well as our scholarship funds.
