Pendants and pendant kits by Leayn Tabili.
Autumn is here, and leaves are falling...
There’s crispness in the air, and the holidays are approaching…
Lake House Health & Learning Center will celebrate the season on Saturday, Nov. 17, at 932 Lake Ave., with its annual Fall Health & Gift Fest, and you are invited!
We’ll transform our lovely Victorian house into a autumn cornucopia showcasing local artisans, artists, photographers, shopkeepers and health professionals who will share their wares with the public — just in time for holiday shopping — and offer health resources and information.
Among the treasures you will find: jewelry, photography, art, crafts, natural soap and body products, Chinese healing teas, cookbooks, cultural gift items, non-toxic cleaning items plus gift certificates for coaching, personal development sessions, Chinese medicine treatments, tai chi classes and other health services.
Visitors will be able to learn about the new Wild Root Market and purchase co-op memberships.
Hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. There is no admission charge although visitors are encouraged to bring a donation of non-perishable food items for the Racine County Food Bank.
Friend our special Fest Facebook page as updates are added.
Here's who and what you will find:
Katie Hall, of Katie Hall Photography specializing in mother and baby and family photography, will show samples of her work and offer photography session gift certificates in any denomination, discounts for 2013 sessions at a discounted rate; birth photography coupons, raffling a free mini-session and other photo gifts and providing an exclusive offer to be involved in her annual glamour session event coming up on January
Leayn Tabili, of Anthelion Hancrafted Jewelry, will offer a variety of contemporary jewelry including beading and chain maille as well as purses and other accessories.
In addition, visitors will have the opportunity to take a look at a full-spectrum light box. The box is a non-medication alternative to Seasonal Affective Disorder, sometimes known as “winter blues” or “winter depression” due to the lower level of sunlight in the winter.
Door prizes, refreshments and giveaways will add an extra bit of fun, and participants will have an opportunity to pick up a free copy of the 2011-12 Guide To Health, Wellness & Creative Living, the regional directory to health resources.
