Escape the retail rat-race with the Burnaby Gogos' craft fair

The Burnaby Gogos are helping to get the city into the holiday spirit once again.

The sale runs from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., and you’ll be able to choose from a wide variety of quality handmade gift items – including their signature Gogo totes, as well as other bags and purses, kitchen items, kids’ gifts, handmade jewelry, pet toys and more. There will also be home baking and packaged food, plus fresh evergreen boughs and holly for decorating.

And if that wasn’t enough, you can also pick up some holiday reading at the used book table.

All proceeds from Gogos’ events go to the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign, which helps African grandmothers who are caring for children orphaned by AIDS. (“Gogo” is the Zulu word for grandmother.)

Admission is free, and parking is available behind the church.

The Burnaby Gogos also welcome new members – and no, you don’t have to be a grandmother to join. Email burnabygogos@gmail.com if you want to find out more.
