5th Annual ‘Handmade in America’ Professional Craft Show is Nov. 17 in Upper Township

The Fifth Annual “Handmade in America” Professional Craft Show will be held at the Upper Township Community Center on Saturday, Nov. 17. Vendors are chosen by jury, and almost every vendor is from New Jersey. Every item in the show is made by skilled craftsmen, so everything is literally “handmade in America.” Show hours are from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Other activities for the day include a 50/50 raffle, a huge Chinese auction including outstanding items donated by many exhibiting crafters, a “Kids Can Craft!” area, food, live entertainment by John Lockwood from WIBG 94.3 FM, and fun for all. There are no fees for admission, parking or the kids’ crafting area.

The Greater Tuckahoe Area Merchants’ Association is hosting the show as one of several annual fund-raising events to help raise money for their scholarship funds. This very small but active group has awarded over $200,000 in scholarships to local students since 1998. Among the scholarships are: the James & Martha Owens Scholarship, the $1,000 Alex and Virginia May Scholarship, the GTAMA Scholarships which go to students who are already enrolled in college, and four other scholarship funds.

The Upper Township Community Center is located at 1790 Rt. 50, Tuckahoe. Stop by this top-rated show to get a head start on your holiday shopping, and take home some one-of-a-kind gifts. Perhaps you’ll even find something for your own wish list!
