In addition to the opportunity to start your holiday shopping and enjoy some yummy treats, by attending this year’s event you can help two local families who are going through difficult times.

We will be featuring a big screen TV raffle to benefit the Maniace family. Susan Maniace has been a vendor at this craft show and other local shows for many years and her 20-year-old daughter Olivia, who has cystic fibrosis, is currently at the Cleveland Clinic in serious condition, hopefully awaiting a lung transplant.

Raffle tickets for the TV will be sold at this event and also at the Holiday Hollow event in Holland. NY on Nov. 23rd from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. The drawing will take place on Nov. 23rd.

Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from Holiday Happenings will be donated to Jessie Elliott, a Pavilion resident who is battling cancer.

Join us at Holiday Happenings on Saturday, Nov. 2nd, and help others while kicking off the holiday season.

Another old thing that's new again is ceramics.

Decades ago, buying clay figurines and painting them according to your own craft or whimsy was quite the thing, but then the hobby kind of faded away.

It's starting to make a comeback, which is one reason Shirley Nigro-Hill decided to open a ceramics shop on Ellicott Street in Batavia.

Nigro-Hill taught ceramics in the 1970s before establishing a reputation in dolls, but when her daughter moved back here from Florida and couldn't find what she needed to continue her ceramics crafting, they decided to open up the shop in a building she owns on Ellicott.

They already had the kilns and slips, which puts them in a unique position for most ceramic shops these days -- they pour and fire most of what they sell.

"I guess that's unusual for the day, but I'm back from the old school," Nigro-Hill said.

The type of ceramics is called "Bisque wear."  

The shop, Fired Up - Ready to Paint Ceramics, opened last week.

Customers can purchase a figurine and paint it in the shop with acrylic paint and it will be dry and ready to take home by that evening, or they can take it home and paint it at home.

Nigro-Hill said the shop also offers classes for both adults and children and also offers group events.

Fired Up, at 216 Ellicott St., is open noon to 8 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays, noon to 6 p.m. on Fridays, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays.
