    Handmade and Specialty Gift Items

    Regular* Booth Fee: $25 – this is our first year and we want to make sure it’s worth your while!

    Sunday November 18, 9:30-3 at 6501 Ridge Avenue, Cincinnati (Rockdale is in the JCC complex in Amberly Village)

    Since we are a Jewish congregation we do ask that no Christmas/Christian holiday themed items be on display. This includes Santa, Christmas trees, holiday lights, creches, crosses, wreaths, etc.

    You can email me at EllieWrites2, I have a gmail account, for more information.
