Santa’s Shelves Craft Faire 2022

After a 2-year pause during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are welcoming back our annual Santa’s Shelves Craft Fair this year! It will be held on November 19th and 20th at the Felton Fire Station.

Come join us November 19th and 20th, the weekend before Thanksgiving, when we will turn the Felton fire station into a seasonal winter wonderland with of the wares of our local crafters and artisans. We will have over 27 vendors onsite displaying their hand made creations. From jewelry and apparel to plants and tasty treats there is something for everyone. Take a break from your shopping and visit Mrs. Clause’s Kitchen, where you can purchase breakfast, lunch, a snack or beverage.

Come meet Santa from 11-1 each day to get your Christmas wishes in early before the rush of the holidays.

We will have all your favorite “I support Felton Fire” apparel available to purchase as well as a bake sale, and a raffle.

All proceeds from this event goes to fund equipment purchases for the volunteer fire squad. This year we are raising money for cardiac related equipment. We are in need of replacement Automated External Defibrillator (AED) units for all of our response apparatus to replace the aging units we have currently. We also would like to purchase an automated CPR device known as the Lucas Compression Device.
