This is a guest post from organizers of the annual Wake Forest Artisans’ Fair:
It’s time for the annual Wake Forest University Artisans’ Fair to be held on Friday, Dec. 2 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. in Benson University Center, Room 401. Thirty vendors will show and sell their handcrafted products which include jewelry, woodworking, stitchery, pottery, baked goods, stained glass, etc.
An exciting new feature to the annual event are items made by Facilities and Campus Services from recycled Wake Forest products! Palmer/Piccolo bed frames have been converted into Adirondack-style chairs, flooring from Reynolds Gym has been transformed into a table, and wooden trivets are designed from the beloved magnolia trees. Products will be on display as silent auction items (some with minimum pricing), with bids taken until 4 p.m. At the close of the event, those with the highest bids will be notified of their winning bids and arrangements made for item pickup. Proceeds from these items will benefit the United Way.
