San and his friend Lon VanGeloven will have their handmade wooden barnyard animal toys. San's wife, Brenda will have beautifully decorated, handmade potholders. And Laz will have Haiku Coasters — coaster sets featuring haiku poems he's written in collaboration with poet Jennifer Burd, illustrated by artist Melanie Boyle, with letterpress by printmaker Mike Victor. Jennifer and Laz will also have their book / CD, "Receiving the Shore."

Come visit our booth — but there is more! The Holiday Bazaar features an artisan's market, children's activities, including jump rope winding, candle dipping, puppet theater and storytelling, as well as music performances by the students, and a light lunch sponsored by Arbor Farms Market.
