All are welcome to the Msgr. Clarke School Christmas Festival, a free craft and gift show. Shoppers will find hundreds of treasures for purchase. More than 70 booths will offer seasonal, edible, household or personal gifts such as Alex & Ani bangles, hand-crafted stamped cards, wreaths, poinsettias, ornaments, lighted glass blocks, jewelry, candles, 18” doll clothing, soaps and lotions, specialty pet items, gourmet food, clothing, handbags, quilts, and knitted and crocheted items.
For people who prefer gifts that are wrapped and ready to give, the school will sell a huge variety of filled gift baskets.
The PTO creates nine giant raffle baskets each worth several hundred dollars each. Garden items, family games and entertainment, camping and sporting goods, spa gifts, artist supplies, cash and gift cards are just a few of the themed baskets.
Have a sweet tooth? Indulge it with hand-made lollipops, gourmet nuts and chocolate-enrobed apples, fudge, cakes, cupcakes, brownies, muffins, cookies and other baked goods donated by parents.
