More than a dozen vendors are gearing up for the Los Alamos/White Rock Arts and Crafts Crawl slated for Saturday, Dec. 5 at private homes throughout the County.
The COVID-safe event, which runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., provides a platform for local artists and crafters to sell their creations during a time when arts and craft fairs are banned under the state public health order. A similar event was held in October and was so successful that the second crawl was planned for Saturday.
If you are not familiar with the “Crawl” concept, think of it as part yard sale and part art fair. The vendors set up outside homes and shoppers get to come by and see what they offer for sale. Masks are worn and social-distancing is required. Some vendors have doubled up at locations to make it easier for shoppers.

515 Paige Loop – Florence Riebe and Janet Montoya
