Holiday gift shows and fairs. You either love them or hate them. I enjoy browsing if I know things are deals and worthy of gifting. However there are many that are full of high priced and trendy items that I would never gift,

Churches and schools often have great gift items under $20. That’s my type of holiday gift fair! Last year, when no one dared come into contact with anyone else, a group of crafters got together to put on a virtual craft fair. There was a variety of items that were true crafts, the handmade and homemade type. There were also a lot of large MLM companies represented. Each crafter it sales consultant was featured for one day. It was, not fun, but a practical option. They’re doing it again this year and it started this weekend. I don’t even time in when it’s a mass produced item that anyone can get from a large company. [Think cosmetics, candles, kids books, etc.]

I ordered a couple of personalized drink tumblers for a special couple in the family. I won’t order anything else, on sure. That’s about the only item that is with the price.

The most annoying item available at that fair, and so many other places, is really trendy and, to me, freaky. You’ve probably all seem one. That horrible elf that is moved from place to place to sit on kids and discourage them from misbehaving — yup, elf on the shelf. Don’t you think it’s freaky?

Freaky little guy!
