Vendors Sought for Upcoming Fairs
The Grace Cottage Hospital Auxiliary Fair Day on Saturday, August 5, will again include a community arts and crafts show. Area artists and craftspeople are encouraged to display their works in this show, which will be held in the Townshend Church on the Townshend Common. Pieces in the show will be for sale, with a portion of the proceeds going to benefit Grace Cottage Hospital. Those interested in exhibiting should contact Patty Jerez at 802-365-9266 or [email protected] as soon as possible, as space is limited. Fair Day is a major fundraiser that helps the Hospital purchase needed equipment. For more information, call 365-9992.

Arlington will be the place to be on Saturday, August 5, when Saint James’ Episcopal Church presents Norman’s Attic from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. This popular event has been held for 22 years in historic Arlington, the home of beloved American artist Norman Rockwell and his family from 1939 to 1953. Vendor spaces are $40 if you register by July 1. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Saint James’ does all the publicity and marketing for the event; you just show up with your tent and your wares. (If you want to reserve a similar space for the Church’s popular Harvest Fest on September 30, the cost for both events is just $70 if you register now.) In addition to the community-wide tag sale, Norman’s Attic includes a food court with early-morning coffee and pastries, a lunch grill, salads, sandwiches and homemade desserts. There will also be a bake table, nearly-new offerings and a basket raffle. For more information or to request a registration form, call the Church at 802-375-9952 or vendor co-chair Joanna Taylor at 802-375-9330. You can also e-mail [email protected] or go to stjamesarlingtonvt.org.
