* Sat. & Sun. Nov. 28th and 29th – The Harvard Square Holiday Fair 2009 returns for its 24th year as the longest running annual craft fairs. The fair is a Harvard Square winter highlight drawing thousands of local residents and visitors from across New England, with 40 artists and craftspeople offering a stunning array of unique and affordable gifts for holiday giving. These days people are looking for alternatives to mall shopping and love supporting local artists and craftspeople, and keeping their dollars in the community. Shoppers also want to be green, and the Fair features many craftspeople using recycled materials including: jewelry and wind chimes from old silver plated cutlery dazzling light fixtures from used coffee and tomato cans used food packaging made into purses and totes clothing and bags from vintage silk and satin fabrics clocks made from old metal plates and trays jewelry from bottle caps and found objects and of course many other beautifully handcrafted gifts: pottery, calendars, tiles, cards, wooden spoons and cutting boards, hats, mittens, candles, stuffed animals, flutes, sweaters, and lots of funky jewelry. Open for a total of 13 days between Nov. 28th and Christmas Eve, with many new exhibitors every weekend, the fair takes place near the heart of Harvard Square at the First Parish Unitarian Church on the corner of Church St. and Mass.
