The Grosvenor Galleries 2011 Christmas Art and Craft Fair is happening December 3 and 4 (Saturday and Sunday) at 1 Grosvenor Terrace. 

10a.m. – 5 p.m., No admission charge.

Do your Christmas shopping at the Fair & BUY JAMAICAN THIS CHRISTMAS!

Lots of unique gift ideas that you won’t find anywhere else: jewelery, pottery, orchids, woodcraft, art, photography, rugs, henna tattoos, aromatherapy products, handmade soaps, ceramics, candles, mosaics, driftwood furniture, ceramics, stained glass, t-shirts, hand painted glassware, calabash art, fortune telling, Indian linens, swimsuits & wraps, garden art, antiques, books, hand painted glasses, international food, drinks by Tony’s Bar and much, much more!

Here are a few photos I took at the fair last year.

As usual the fair was an interesting mix of fine art, craft, clothing, ceramics, photography, jewelry (both locally handmade and imported), mosaics, orchids, sculptures, calabash art,T-shirts, food, much socializing and more.

I think patrons enjoyed the good weather, eclectic offerings and the overall good vibe that is always found at this annual event!

    I leave a comment whenever I appreciate a post on a site or I have something to
    add to the discussion. It is a result of the passion displayed in the post
    I looked at. And after this post blog topic.
    I was moved enough to drop a comment 😉 I do have a couple of questions
    for you if you don’t mind. Could it be simply
    me or does it appear like some of these responses appear like coming from brain dead visitors?
    😛 And, if you are writing at other places, I’d like to keep up with everything new you have to post.
    Would you list every one of all your community pages like your twitter
