The Irish Heritage Society of Milford will host its first Holiday Artisan Craft Fair at 131 Bridgeport Avenue, Saturday, Dec. 1, to support a local family in need during the holidays.
Each year IHSM works with Milford’s Department of Human Services and adopts a local family as their holiday family and provides needed items and gifts during the festive season. This year the club decided to raise these efforts by hosting a holiday fair.
Shoppers can enjoy a bake shop and unique local, handmade items such as monogram tote bags, crystal jewelry, candles, knitted items made by Irish Club members, handmade pebble art shadow boxes, knitted blankets, fairy gardens, photography prints and more…Shopper can also have holiday photos taken for $5 with half of the proceeds going to the family.
