Their 16th annual Fair from what I gather,
and I think we have been to the last 6 or 7 (maybe more).

Visiting “Sawyers Holiday Open House” in Barnstead, NH (next to the White Church) has now become an entrenched & mandatory Thanksgiving weekend tradition — and I think we have been going to it, without fail, for quite a few years — and always enjoy the experience. Very rewarding. Great people. Salt of the Earth.

So, it was on our lists of things to do after Thanksgiving. This year it was the first thing we did on Black Friday!

A wonderful, uplifting tradition. Such a tranquil and picturesque setting. I love wandering around snapping pictures.

Thank YOU the Sawyer family and their vendors.

Visiting “Sawyers Holiday Open House” in Barnstead, NH (next to the White Church) has now become an entrenched Thanksgiving weekend tradition — and I think we have been going to it, without fail, for the last four to five years, if not longer.

So, it was on our lists of things to do after Thanksgiving. Last year we could not get there until Sunday. To make up for that, this year we went around noon on Friday, before most of the nice stuff got snapped out. We were, of course, not disappointed. It is always a treat. Wonderful congenial atmosphere and as much pictures show a array of eye-catching creative products — all by local artisans. They also always have a selection of food for sale and free treats for the visitors. This year we bought some cheese.

A wonderful, rewarding tradition. Such a tranquil and picturesque setting. I love wandering around snapping pictures.

Their 15th annual Fair from what I gather.

They will be open Saturday & Sunday, November 24 & 25, 2018.

Thank YOU the Sawyer family and their vendors.

Thanksgiving around these parts would not be complete without the now landmark “Sawyers Holiday Open House” in Barnstead, NH, next to the White Church.

We could not, alas, make it until the Sunday given our trip to Maine. Usually we are there on Friday, if not Saturday. But, this year we got there first thing Sunday. As we expected much of the good stuff was gone — and that is “OK”! We are glad for the Sawyers and their vendors. They all do such a good job that they deserve the success and acclaim they now enjoy.

But, they still have some ultra cute chocolate Christmas tree decorations and I could not resist!

A wonderful, rewarding tradition. Such a tranquil and picturesque setting. I love wandering around snapping pictures.

This year is now done. Their 14th annual Fair from what I gather.

Can’t wait till 2018.

Thank YOU the Sawyer family and their vendors.

Sawyers Holiday Open House” has now become very much a beloved, mandatory Thanksgiving weekend ritual for our family. We have been going, without fail, for the last 5 years (if not more).  “Sawyers” is on the calendar well ahead of the holidays, and all other plans for the weekend have to be fitted around going to the ‘Open House’ — as early as we can manage.

This year we went on Saturday. Thought it was a damp, dreary day, Sawyers, as ever, was a warm, glowing oasis of color, creativity and much bonhomie. Delightful people. They really do make you feel at home within their cozy, treasure-packed home.

Lot of good stuff, as always. So clever. So compelling. And the hot cider was excellent. We had a lot of fun.

Can’t wait for next year.

“Sawyer’s Open House” craft fair is now on our MANDATORY annual list. It is one of Deanna’s favorite events of late. We have been going, without fail, for the last 4 years (at least). So it was no different yesterday, Saturday, November 28, 2015 — start of the post Thanksgiving Weekend. Though we had a number of things to do, Wolfeboro Christmas Parade and Christmas Tree Lighting among them, per Deanna we had to first go to Sawyer’s — and that, of course, is what we did.

It is always a delight and an unqualified pleasure. I love taking pictures there. So much color, design, form and creativity. Deanna and the kids do the shopping. It is funny. I looked at my pictures from 2013 and 2014. I take the same pictures each year BECAUSE I like the subject, e.g., Steve Barton’s magnificent ‘Wavy Frame’ orange farm (above and below).

Wonderful place. GREAT people (and they take credit cards). Go. IF you get to within 5 miles YOU will find signs. SMILE. So here are some of my pictures.

Enjoy.

Beautiful place. Wonderful ambience.
Great artifacts.


The Steve Barton MASTERPIECE.
To say that I LOVE this piece would not come
CLOSE to capturing my fondness for it.

I have stood in front of this painting, with its compelling ‘wavy frame’, for three years now — in awe.

I know, even without asking, that it is way beyond my league.

This year one of the ladies just happened to tell me, without me even asking, that it was done by her cousin, ‘Steve Barton’,
in California and that he invented the ‘Wavy Frame’. She told me to look him up on the Web. I did.
I knew he wasn’t painting a scene in New Hampshire because I have never seen oranges like that
up here — not even at a supermarket.

We have been going faithfully the last two years. So this was our 3rd visit.

I was sure I had done a post last year, but I will be damned if I can find it. Maybe I deleted it by mistake. Happens.

Very quaint. Beautiful location. Nice people. Visual treat. Prices good. Free cookies and cakes. Takes credit cards.

What more can you ask.

It is on North Barnstead Road, next to the white Church. Lot of signage. You won’t miss it.

SUFFICE to say … CLICK at will.



The picturesque, pastoral, very Barnstead setting …
