Donate your good quality items to the Fair - No White Elephant goods this year please!

In November, we will be collecting good quality items that can be sold at our Advent Fair. We really like donations of books, toys, plants and items for our Trinkets and Treasures stall. There will be no White Elephant Stall this year.
