December 11, 2014: Photo-Essay: Kidsview – HCA Christmas Craft Sale 2014;
Grown up events reviewed by kids.

By HCC Artsy Kids Class – Delphi, Poppy, Laura, Eve, Ava, Nathan, Emma, Frances, and friends.

Although a Christmas Craft Sale is usually aimed at adults, we asked the children of the Hintonburg Community Centre’s Artsy Kids programme to visit the HCA-sponsored craft sale with a camera and a notepad. There, they talked to the vendors, looked over the displays, and told us what they thought in words and pictures. Here is their report.

Kidsview: These ladies are sisters and they’re real friendly. They let us take their picture. They sell things for people in other countries so they can get some money too, to buy things. And they have a website. Photo by Tim
