    We anticipate over 20 local vendors will participate. There is no charge for a table and the Friends provide the table, tablecloths and room decorations. The vendors donate 20% of their profit that day to the Friends to help fund our many projects

    Not only will you be able to select truly beautiful, unusual gifts--many one of a kind--at reasonable prices, but you will also have the opportunity to meet their creators. You will have a painless shopping experience, learn about techniques that turn every day items into works of art and, most important, by avoiding the malls keep the community's hard-earned dollars in South Orange.
