When you think of craft fairs, thoughts of crocheted tissue-box covers and rick-racked aprons may come to mind. But in an area that is home to so many artists, craft fairs boast such items as fine pottery, jewelry, woodwork, geodes, and woven textiles. See what local creatives have to offer—and support the local economy to boot—at the Occidental Crafts Faire on December 8, 10 a.m.–5 p.m., and December 9, 10 a.m.–4 p.m., at the Occidental Community Center in Occidental. Peruse the wares of more than 35 artists, taking a break to eat lunch or nosh on baked goods, or to buy a raffle ticket. Admission is free; proceeds benefit Occidental Community Council programs.
