Lynbrook Craft Faire November 17, 2018

Homemade necklaces, baked goods and soaps that resemble sushi were just a few of the many items showcased at the 38th annual Lynbrook Craft Faire on Nov. 17. In past years, the fair consisted only of independent businesses, but this year, Lynbrook clubs were invited to participate. They sold handmade bracelets, dip dyed mugs and pencil cases made out of newspaper! The clubs participated in this event not only to increase their funds but also to spread their message and showcase their artwork. Let’s take a look at what the Craft Faire had to offer!

The smell of food welcomes Craft Faire attendees right when they walk through the gates.

Intersections, Lynbrook's social justice club, sells handmade friendship bracelets and holiday cards with smiles on their faces.

"We’re selling these handmade bracelets that represent our club and some have the phrase 'make waves' on them. It connects to one of our intersection mission statements that social justice comes in waves," said Intersections' Co-President, senior Selena Jeong.

"This year, in addition to drawing commissions, we decided to make pencil holders made out of newspapers," said Character Design club Vice-President junior Anna Shaposhnik. "The unique aspect about it is that each piece was made by one of 30 club members so this project was definitely a team effort!"

Character Design club members work hard on commissions, in which they draw, in the artist's own style, a character or design of the customers choice.

The holiday season takes over the Craft Faire with vendors selling Christmas themed decorations.

"Selling marble dipped mugs has been a tradition in the club and this year we decided to continue it but add flower arrangements as well," said Art Reach Vice-President, senior Shannon Liu.

Marching Band students stand outside of the Craft Faire, selling cupcakes and brownies with a smile on their faces.

Vendors such as this one sold minimalistic mugs, bowls and plates.

The site of real bees attract the site of many as attendees can see where the honey being sold comes from.

To protect themselves from the smoke filled air, these vendors sell their handmade candles while wearing face makes.
