Artisan Faire returns for Christmas in July
Artisan Faire returns to Ocean Shores in July 2023. After three successful events
beginning in December 2022, this unique event is set to benefit North Beach PAWS.
With a focus on Fair Trade gift items, select local vendors and a Patisserie, attendees
are able to travel five continents all from the confines of the show. Shop for Christmas in
summer or for something for now.
Find pieces focused on dogs and cats to grace the
home. Silk Road Trade Market selections include cats from Kenya created from
soapstone and more, Haiti Creations of Hope artisan pieces made from recycled oil
drum lids are a favorite. Equal Exchange chocolate, tea, spices, olive oil and Cafe’
Justo coffee from Mexico will be part of the selections. SERRV International has
animals and more from India and other countries.
Global Mamas pieces for dogs are
created by these artisans in Ghana. Aprons with matching hot pads are also included.
“Artisan Faire is growing and evolving. We’ve increased to six fair trade lines and
people are finding their favorite artisan pieces new to Ocean Shores and the Pacific
Northwest. With each event net proceeds go to area charities.
You are helping artisans
(globally or locally) along with these charities,” Cynthis Stearns, event producer said.
Select area vendors blend into the show with the fair trade lines. The Patisserie returns
with food to enjoy at the event. Artisan Faire Adopt-A-Resident will be available for
people to select a Green Lake Assisted Living resident in Ocean Shores. Specially
created gift packages are individually designed for each of the residents.
“Artisan Faire featuring Fair Trade gift items has a heart for local- including local
artisans. To successfully adopt and share love for Green Lake Assisted Living residents
of Ocean Shores, Artisan Faire Adopt-A-Resident is a favorite. I am thankful for the
care and heart that goes into these well organized and planned events,” Elaine
Thomson, Grays Harbor vendor said.

animals and seeking permanent adoptive homes for them.
