As the holidays approach, consider patronizing two local school holiday craft and bake sales for homemade gift items and baked goods that make great gifts. Coonley Elementary School located at 4046 N. Leavitt will be holding its Annual Holiday Market from 10am-4pm on Saturday, November 20th and from 11am-3pm on Sunday, November, 21, 2010. Vendor applications can be picked up in the school office or received via e-mail from one of the following contacts: For the Holiday Market – email@example.com or 312-622-3402. For the Bake Sale – firstname.lastname@example.org or 773-354-3830.
St. Benedict parish will be holding its Annual Elf Shop Christmas Bazaar and Craft Fair in the high school gym located at 3943 N. Bell from 9-4pm on both Saturday, November 20th and Sunday, November 21, 2010. Vendors can contact email@example.com or call 773-588-4351 or 773-539-0066, Ext. 275 for more information.
Both locations are within a block of one another on either side of Irving Park Road which makes for double the variety and shopping fun with the availability of many tasty treats. Residents of North Center, Lincoln Square, and Ravenswood can get into the holiday spirit and support their local schools, crafters, and bakers right in their own backyard and buy locally. Here is your chance to make a dent in your holiday shopping list.
