Fellowship Community Christmas Sale

Last year I posted about the Fellowship Community's annual Christmas Sale and Holiday Fest after the fact, but this year I'm giving you advance warning.  This is always one of my favorite holiday outings, so I'm looking forward to going next weekend.

This adorable little handknit gnome was one of my purchases last year.  Unfortunately, I can't seem to find him anywhere...he might be up to some holiday mischief somewhere in my house.
The Fellowship Community, founded in 1966, is a community of all ages, centered around the care of the elderly. About 150 elderly, children and coworkers live in a rural setting of farm, woods and orchards about 30 miles north-west of New York City. Working and learning together in service to others and in caring for the earth is the central motif of the community life. Those who are interested in a path of self-development in the process of building and maintaining community might find this a place of interest.

We'll be going next weekend too. Hope to see you there. They also have organic Xmas trees from Vermont (at least last year they did). We bought a beautiful handmade shoe scraper we keep at the front door.

That is just my cup of tea, and looking at your previous post on this, it seems that there are many lovely things to be had! Your gnome really is charming.

We're doing handmade Chanukah at my house this year, and I'm really looking forward to it.

If you can't find your gnome, check out VE's Fantastical Nonsense @ vehow.blogspot.com. He is known for consorting and keeping gnomes.

Looks like a fun festival.

And you would love where I'm going on Sunday!!! I'm going to an herb farm to ring in the winter solstice and make an evergreen wreath. I'm also going to sign up to take some gardening classes from these same folks for Jan-Mar.

Would love to be at this event too!
