Dec 5th - "Eat Pie and Shop" at PS 29

Pie! Shopping! Movies! Crafts!

On December 5, PS 29 will host the first annual “Eat Pie and Shop” Holiday Gift Fair and Pie Social. Proceeds from this family-friendly Holiday event will support the PTAs of the school and neighboring PS 8 in Brooklyn Heights.

The Gift Fair will highlight local artisans, craftspeople and merchants, and promises to provide a wide array of handmade, local and sustainable gift-giving choices, from jewelry by Virginia Galvan, to handmade wool hats by Nadege Brunacci, to toys and books by Fork + Pencil and Half Pint Citizens. In all, nearly two dozen vendors will be displaying and selling their wares.

To keep your energy up during your shopping trip, fortify yourself with homemade pie. Local bakers – amateurs and professionals – will supply pies for the Pie Social. For a $5 tasting ticket, the public can sample two pieces of pie of their choosing. Bakers are also invited to bring pies, and a friendly competition will begin at 9:30 a.m.

And while you shop, Rooftop Films will show a selection of independent short films for kids at 11 am, 1 pm and 3 pm. Tickets to the movies are $2.
In addition, children can make free holiday crafts – perhaps an ornament or a frame as a present for Mom and Dad.

We are thrilled to host the first annual Eat Pie and Shop event. It’s nice to have this wonderful alternative to all the holiday craze, one where children and adults can spend some time together, and the fantastic arts programs at our public schools benefit.
Melanie Raneri Woods, Principal of PS 29
