The Home-Grown Alternatives show was held at the St. Paul’s Christian Education Center in Paget on Saturday [Nov 22], offering a shopping experience designed to showcase Bermuda-made arts and crafts.

In 1995 Christine Wellman and Mary Tatem decided to hold a pre-Christmas craft fair, and over the years the event has become an annual tradition, offering people a chance to get a head-start on their Christmas shopping while supporting local artisans.
