Brooklyn Friends School's Winter Festival 2010

 Once again the selection of crafts at the Brooklyn Friends School's Winter Festival on Saturday was outstanding. Several floors of the school (in Downtown Brooklyn next to the Marriott on Pearl Street) were transformed into a winter wonderland with the huge craft sale, a holiday plant sale, lunch and baked goods, entertainment and children's stories, a book fair and a children's carnival.

There were many different styles of jewelry in roughly two categories: the pretty, delicate kind and the clunky, heavy kind. Above -- the pretty, delicate kind.

 These T-shirts featured 3-D bugs in a little clear pouch.

 Fine & Raw Chocolates makes famous "artisan confections." If you missed them Saturday, try the Brooklyn Flea.

 Upstairs , there were games and bouncy things for kids at the carnival, including this School of Sorcery and Academy of Alchemy castle. Our favorite was a huge bouncy maze, which, if no one was looking, we would have been all over.

The proceeds from this extravaganza benefits the Horizons Program for public school children in Downtown Brooklyn. Nice work!
