Barter Fair & Holiday Party – December 10

Sustainable Ballard is hosting a community holiday barter and celebration in the fellowship hall at Amazing Grace Spiritual Center, 2007 NW 61st St, on Sunday, December 10 from 5 to 8 pm.   This event brings together the community, encourages creativity and sharing, creates friendships and offers people a relaxing and enjoyable alternative to the more commercial holiday gift buying experience.

We will be entertained with live music provided by jazz / folk guitarist Michael Good, and there will be refreshment!  Thank you to Lucky Envelope Brewing for donating several cases of Helles Lager, and to New Seasons Market for the donation of yummy desserts!

What could you make for the barter fair and holiday party?  Do you make jam? chocolates? pies?  cheese?  beer?  Do you make jewelry? do you knit?  Does your pig find truffles in the forest?  Can you walk a neighbor’s dog?  House sit?  Baby sit?  would you teach fiddling?  or cooking?  Any of these and other things and services like it would be great to trade at the Barter Fair!
