Transition Town Media created “Green Sunday” as an alternative to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and to big-box, impersonal shopping in general. On Green Sunday, you can shop for holiday gifts from local crafters, artists, and upcyclers. This year will feature a combination of home-made items such as soap, honey, salves, and wool, as well as hand-crafted items such as jewelry, recycled paper books, textiles and a new category of “upcycled” items, such as discarded wine bottles that are heated and shaped into serving dishes. Green Sunday will also include sweet treats and drinks, raffles, and more!
Green Sunday aims to promote local vendors and local artists and to engage our community in more ecological alternatives for holiday shopping. We will be raffling and selling gift baskets, as well as packing materials and wrap so that those attending the fair can literally go from booth to booth purchasing items and putting together their own “Media Local” gift baskets, just like the ones we will be raffling off. Don’t forget to get your raffle tickets! The prizes make a wonderful holiday gift! We will also have several drop-in, make-your-own-craft stations to keep the kids entertained while you shop. Come enjoy this festive holiday event – everyone is welcome!
We will have a Swap Table, strictly for holiday items, so bring your extra wrapping paper, ribbons, ornaments, holiday cookie molds, and holiday decor, but please leave your blender or the pair of jeans that don’t fit at home. Thanks!
