Holiday Craft Fairs in New Jersey
I just love holiday craft fairs. I’m not a fan of malls and big crowds, so to me, a holiday fair is the perfect place to find adorable, hand-made gifts for everyone in the family. Not to mention, your purchases help support local artists, so it's a win-win. There’s a certain kind of charm to a holiday craft fair, and I hope you stop by some of these wonderful New Jersey fairs this holiday season.
