Wellfleet's Preservation Hall Holds Craft Fair

Snowflakes may have been falling this afternoon but they could not dampen the spirits of the townsfolk who turned out for the annual craft fair organized by Wellfleet Preservation Hall. The event was held in the basement of the former Catholic Church this year rather than on the Main Street sidewalk, due to the inclement weather. I was greeted at the door with an offer of Christmas cookies and cider. The basement room was decked out with wreaths, created by Wellfleet citizens. Christmas trees were also on sale. I admired the gingerbread house raffle prize and purchased some handmade beeswax candles. There were plenty of handicrafts to admire, including woven purses and gloves from Georgia. Wellfleetians were also selling art and photography. I especially enjoyed the collection of wreaths, some whimsical, others more traditional. What a great event to benefit Preservation Hall!
