THE TULSA HERB SOCIETY
“CAROLS AND CRUMPETS”
Imagine walking into a winter wonderland where fairies, herbal crafts and delicious condiments dance in your head; you smell lavender, rosemary and taste chocolate treats. This is a place where everyone knows your name and welcomes you with cheerful smiles and open arms. You’ve just arrived at Carols and Crumpets an herb craft fair described as a highly anticipated event, indeed its magical!
This year, Carols and Crumpets is December 7th, 2013 from 8:00 am – 3:00 pm at the Tulsa Garden Center, 2435 S. Peoria in Tulsa, OK. Located in the historic garden center where the auditorium, south room, and halls are turned into a whimsical shopping wonderland. There are vendors from Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas and Missouri who join together to celebrate the holidays early.
Patsy Wynn, event co-chair suggests Carols and Crumpets has a wonderful following. Tulsans and like-minded friends from surrounding communities form lines before the 8:00 am opening in rain, sleet and snow to be the first in the doors to find warm beverages, tasty treats and unique handmade gifts waiting in the Tulsa Garden Center.
The Tulsa Herb Society’s own members spend the entire year turning creative ideas into new cooking and crafting projects. Lois Galpin and the cooking committee promises tasty creations never tried before, but simply wonderful. Their vinegars always a favorite, along with the chutneys will be available in a multitude of flavors, so expect your palate to be pleased. Eve Joseph, event co-chair and the crafting committee spends countless hours on delicate hand-made novelties.
A few years ago the Tulsa Herb Society started two separate booths using their ingenuity and finesse. The greenery booth has mushroomed into a holiday decorating corner. The raffle booth offers shoppers an opportunity to buy tickets for the chance to win a one of a kind hand-made felt Christmas tree. It’s the perfect holiday gift with its unique design and craftsmanship.
Vendors rejoice each year with their own special flair. Expect to find fresh and dried herbs and spices, vintage items, native crafts, primitives, steampunk jewelry, original art, gift cards, pottery, glassware, candles, soaps, lotions, clothing and chocolate! Did I mention fairies; they too will be there.
After a morning of shopping the place to sit and chat with friends is the Snowflake Café. Open at 11 am for great noshing and restful conversations.
This year the Tulsa Herb Society is celebrating their 25th anniversary by inviting you to this very special Carols and Crumpets. The admission is free, the atmosphere cozy and the scents exceptionally delicious. For more information contact 918/289-6217 or visit www.tulsaherb.com
