December Craft Fair Scheduled at Ganahl

September 22, 1985|DALE BALDWIN

Attention wood carvers, cabinetmakers, wood turners: Ganahl Lumber Co. in Anaheim is giving you a chance to let everyone know how good you are--and let you make some money off your hobby in the process.

The event is the sixth annual Christmas Festival of Woodworking and it will be held Dec. 7 and 8 at the company's facility at 1220 E. Ball Road. Stacks of oak, pine, fir, cedar and redwood will provide a fitting backdrop for the work of about 75 individual craftsmen and craftswomen, according to Valerie Bloom of Ganahl.

All this and Santa Claus, too! The hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day and the products on display include turned hardwood bowls, fine wood carvings, old-fashioned wooden toys, puzzles, games, furniture, jewelry, sculpture, etc.

Instead of buying the same old kind of gifts this holiday season, you might visit this free event and buy--at an attractive price--something special. Door prize drawings will also be held both days and free refreshments will make this a family event.

More information and registration forms can be obtained from Valerie Bloom at Ganahl. The registration fee of $50 entitles participants to a good-sized table, a folding chair and a 48 square feet of space.

The numerous recent rash of home break-ins--from the home intruder attacks of the Miami area to the Toluca Lake Rapist and the Night Stalker cases right here in California--point out the need for more vigilance in home security matters.

According to the Schlage Lock Co., more than 5 million homes will be burglarized this year in the United States, with a loss of $4 billion in property.

Schlage has produced an excellent, free 16-page brochure entitled "The Burglar Doesn't Ring Twice" containing useful advice on home security and hints on what kinds of locks to buy. The best kind of lock to buy is a good quality one from a reputable company like Schlage.

To obtain a copy of the booklet, write to Schlage Lock Co./IHS Division, 15540 Roxford St., Sylmar, Calif. 91342.
