Take on City Hall - for the crafts

Roseville City Hall will host the ninth annual Holiday Craft Fair benefit for Harriet Alexander Nature Center, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1 and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2.

Local crafters and artists offer all-handmade wares including soaps and balms; natural stone, fused glass, beaded and other jewelry; photography; pottery; knitted items; fairy and bird houses; paintings and more. A "Green Gifts" room features crafts made from recycled materials and items that help to live a more green life.

The craft fair is offered by Friends of Roseville's Harriet Alexander Nature Center, which will also hold a silent auction of items donated by vendors. Money raised in the silent auction goes toward increasing FORHANC's contribution to interior improvements at the nature center, part of Roseville Parks and Recreation's Master Plan.

Coffee and treats will be available from Messy Giuseppe.

City Hall is located at 2660 Civic Center Drive, at the corner of Lexington Avenue and County Road C.
