As the holiday season approaches, gift shopping can become a priority for many. Holiday craft fairs and markets are great places to find hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind gifts. These Christmas markets and fairs will surely host some truly unique, special items that may be just what you are looking for. 


Talk to a Spiritualist for a good cause

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the First United Spiritualist Church has had to limit many of its events to virtual-only. This fundraiser market is a both. With vendors, as well as spiritual healers and readers, there will be wares such as crystals, tarot decks, soaps, and candles. Readers will be available for sessions either through zoom or in person. To book a session, it must be done in advance. The fundraisers' advertisement has full details about what vendors, readers, and healers will be present, as well as instructions on how to book a session.
