An annual tradition, this year’s Craft Fair will feature more than a dozen new sellers as well as many returning favorites. All 24 vendors/crafters are UCOP employees or their family members, so this is the ultimate “shop local” event. Many items will be priced at $5 or less.

A wide variety of handcrafted goods will be offered, including:

  • Many different types and styles of handmade jewelry such as earrings, bracelets, and necklaces, made of beads, fused glass, and gold
  • Pampering items like “bath bombs,” all-natural soaps, herbal remedies and lavender sachets
  • Accessories like silk and wool scarves, stockings, leather bags and wallets
  • Household comforts including quilts, pillowcases, woven blankets and hand-sewn textiles
  • Decorative items including framed artwork, stained glass pieces and embellished candles
  • Paper luxuries such as handmade cards, gift tags, “upcycled” journals and lathe-turned wood pens
  • Fun items like wooden toys, rhinestone tumblers, art kits, Christmas ornaments and holiday linens
