Did you want to start holiday shopping early? Try some new and delicious foods? Or just buy someone (yourself?) a special treat, the Holiday Festival held at Seaside Park was a good place to be.
Arts and crafts, household items, candy, jewelry, you name it. Finding signs that said “New Artist” and seeing what they had to offer. One booth, for example, had messenger bags made out of horse feed sacks, sturdy and attractive.
Even some nonprofits were there. An exhibitor had beautiful original art and cards with elephants; they give a percentage of their profits to an elephant sanctuary.
