Local businesses and Liverpool non-profit groups will display and sell their locally-made products from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday Nov. 14 in the Carman Community Room at Liverpool Public Library.
The Buy Local fundraiser, sponsored by the Friends of Liverpool Library, is a good opportunity to get started on your holiday shopping. Gift items produced from Syracuse-area vendors and artisans will be available for purchase; local non-profits such as House at 807 and KittyCorner of CNY will also be featured.
Some of the local businesses participating include After Winter Jewelry, Amaizeing Stitchery, Carol's Glass Beads, Dinosaur BBQ, Earth-In-Ware, Em's Chocolates, Godsarf Jewelry Design, Miss Elaineous Gardens & Gifts, Moonflower Designs, Norma B-s Chocolates, Ramona's Dressings and Tundratown.
"We are pleased to sponsor an event that supports both the library and local businesses," said Pam Sprague, event coordinator. "By buying locally you are getting more than just a quality product; you are investing in the strength of our community by putting dollars back into the local economy."
The Friends of the Liverpool Public Library will also have homemade baked goods and gently used holiday books for sale plus a winter holiday themed white elephant sale. In addition, a handmade quilt featuring a book theme will be raffled off. The quilt is currently on display at the Liverpool Library.
Admission to the event is free. Liverpool Public Library is located at 310 Tulip St. in Liverpool.
