On Friday evening, December 7, from 6 to 11 pm, Beacon will be participating in the New Haven Night Market, a festive bazaar featuring arts, crafts, music, food, and more.

Beacon is excited to have a booth and be part of the festivities! We are hoping to raise some much-needed funds with our colorful sale in our pop-up “Rainbow Shop” featuring rainbow keffiyeh scarves by Tahrir, along with an excellent selection of plenty other brightly-colored handmade and donated items. Prices range from $1 to $20.

The Night Market is an opportunity to have fun, find some unique items, do a bit of holiday shopping, and support us and other local non-profits, small businesses, artists, craftspeople, and musicians. We hope you will join us and invite friends, family, neighbors! Mark your calendar, and join us for this great community event. Details about the location and a list of vendors can be found on the Night Market website.

Contact Beacon if you would like to donate your time, or have any questions. We need folks to help us make cozy fleece items and lots of Beacon friends to be there to help make it super fun and exciting. An extra hand or two with set up and break down of the booth would be much appreciated. In any case, we really hope you can make it, and that you will share news of the event far and wide.

If you want to contribute fleece items, we can provide patterns, and on Saturday, December 1st from 10am to 1pm, we are planning to host a ‘sew-a-thon’ at Beacon to make hats and neck warmers together. Whatever fleece items don’t sell we plan to donate to local shelters.
