During what is traditionally a busy arts and crafts fair season in Los Alamos County, many people felt disappointed that they could not purchase unique treasures and gifts in the usual way. That’s when Jennifer Neil and Judy Bjarke came up with the idea of ​​hosting a COVID-Safe Arts and Crafts Crawl from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 31 in Los Alamos and White Rock.

After posting the idea on local social media, they were thrilled when more than a dozen vendors from both communities jumped on board offering a wide variety of items from pottery to wreaths.

As a bonus, shoppers who visit all 13 vendors will have their names placed in a draw for approximately $25 worth of gift cards for Blue Window Café, Amazon, Target and Los Alamos Chamber Bucks.

All sellers and buyers are required to wear masks and observe social distancing. Tables will be set up outdoors and shoppers are asked not to exceed five people at a table at any given time.
