Craft fairs offer chance to do holiday shopping


WITH ONLY 21 shopping days until Christmas, two local craft fairs will offer an opportunity to find unique gifts.

More than 200 artisans will display their crafts when Glen Burnie High has its 11th holiday craft fair, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

Shoppers will find holiday decorations and gift ideas displayed throughout the media building.

Proceeds from the event, one of the largest holiday shows in the county, will benefit the Class of 1997, the Key Club and the special education department.

Teacher Mary Huey, coordinator of the event, is expecting several favorite craftsmen and women to make a return appearance, augmented by a number of new vendors.

In addition to the crafts, several school organizations will be offering fund-raising items for sale.

"The foreign language club will be selling cookies again this year and the junior class is selling [Glen Burnie High School] lanyards to hold keys that are so popular with the students," said Huey.

Glen Burnie High is at 7550 Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd.
