Saturday: Holiday fair in Portola Valley


Greeting cards and gifts, including paintings, jewelry, wood crafts and hand-knitted items, will be for sale at the Portola Valley holiday fair to be held Saturday, Dec. 4, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Historic Schoolhouse at Town Center at 765 Portola Road.

Ten percent of the purchase prices go to either the K-8 Portola Valley School District or toward the purchase of open space in town, said Jane Wilson, a spokeswoman for the crafts sale part of the event.

The day also includes a silent auction that benefits the school district only. This part of the day includes big-ticket items and will be held in the Town Center's Community Hall from 1 to 3:30 p.m. Biddable items include such things as a weekend in Santa Cruz, a month of fitness classes, and several collections of entertainment items meant to round out an evening at home.

There will be entertainment and kids activities, including face painting, cookie decorating, and vocal jazz from a group of students from Corte Madera Middle School.

The local Brownie troop will be selling "edible treats" and the eighth-graders will be selling food and beverages to raise money for a trip to Washington, D.C.

The day includes a raffle, wreaths and ornaments for sale, and a visit by Santa Claus for photos.
