ART | Second Storie Indie Market/Folk Art Guild Festival of Crafts 

Celebrate local folk art this weekend by checking out two special arts and crafts sales taking place in Rochester. The Rochester Folk Art Guild will host its Annual Holiday Festival of Crafts, a three-day event designed to showcase the work of the guild's skilled artisans and craftsmen. The guild's work is rustic and evocative of the Finger Lakes region, with a particular emphasis this year on the earthen and autumnal styles. There will be hand-woven rugs, custom designed clothing, fine wooden furniture, as well as a selection of unique hand-crafted pottery. The festival will run Friday and Saturday, November 29-30, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday, December 1, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and will be held at The Harley School (1981 Clover St.). Admission is $2. For more information call 554-3539 or visit

For more crafty opportunities, on Saturday, November 30, Second Storie will hold its annual Indie Market at the Visual Studies Workshop Auditorium (31 Prince St.). The event will run 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and will feature a plethora of handmade crafts from local art vendors. As an added bonus, Le Petit Poutine, Hello Arepa, and Joe Bean Coffee trucks will be on hand in case you need a food and caffeine break in between your browsing. For more information visit
