Ticket sales help support community projects. The thought of home and the holidays creates a sense of nostalgia that excites the young and young-at-heart,” said Angela Carr-Finch, 2017 Holly Day Fair Chair. “We have a tendency to look forward to the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season and the excitement that comes with it. Subsequently, we are striving to provide an awesome experience for our shoppers. The thrill of this eventful show has encouraged the Junior League of Fayetteville to recommit to a successful fundraising event so that our sole fundraiser will help support the needs of women and children in Fayetteville and surrounding areas.” Holly Day Fair kicks off Nov. 2 with Super Shopper hours from 9 a.m. to noon.
