THE WOMAN’S CLUB OF EVANSTON PRESENTS ITS CORNUCOPIA GIFT FAIR

Kick-off the Holidays with Unique and Specialty Gift Items from Juried Artisans

November 18th, 19th, and 20th

 No need to battle traffic or crowded malls this year for your holiday shopping—just head over to The Woman’s Club of Evanston (WCE). The WCE’s festive Cornucopia Gift Fair, held Friday, November 18th through Sunday, November 20th, offers something for everyone on your list, and a great way to support the community.

 For over 20 years, the WCE’s annual gift fair has been a go-to source for unique home decor, apparel, children’s clothing and accessories, gourmet foods, and one-of-a-kind jewelry. Nearly 60 local and regional artisans will be selling their handcrafted and specialty items at this juried event. Approximately half of this year’s vendors are first-time exhibitors at the Cornucopia Gift Fair, making this event a must-see for new discoveries as well as featuring unique pieces from favorite returning artisans.

 Since 1889, the WCE has had a proud history of helping support organizations that make a difference in our community. Proceeds from the Cornucopia Gift Fair help support the WCE’s philanthropic work in the community, and directly benefit local not-for-profit organizations.

The WCE’s Cornucopia Gift Fair opens on Friday, November 18th, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday, November 19th, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, November 20th, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets are $6 for a one-time admission or $15 for a multi-day pass (limited quantities), and may be purchased at the door. Visit www.wcofe.org/cornucopia for more information and a vendor list.

The Woman’s Club of Evanston is located at 1702 Chicago Avenue in Evanston.  Metered street parking, lot and garage are conveniently located within walking distance of the club.
