Thanksgiving is coming up fast, with Black Friday and visions of Christmas trees hot on its tail. Have you started thinking about your gift list yet? There is an understandable push to buy local from artists in your own community. Amazon doesn't do a little jig when they make a sale, but that jeweler who lives around the corner from you will! But where do you find all those Maine crafters to buy your gifts before you run out of time?

Mark your calendars for the 3rd annual Tidings Craft & Art Fair! Get into the holiday spirit and support almost 40 local makers and artists in their crafts, while listening to live music and enjoying local food! If that doesn't sound like a lovely time, I don't know what does.

There will even be activities to keep your kids busy while you shop for them and evergreens to fulfill your home decorating needs. Parking is free for all attendees in the Ocean Gateway lot. The season is in full swing; support your community and get great, unique gifts for everyone on your list!
