It was a busy few days for the Tradeworks team at the annual Christmas at Hycroft craft fair and holiday celebration. For over 40 years the University Women’s Club has created a winter wonderland at Hycroft Manor, and this year was no exception. Resplendent in lights and Christmas decor, the mansion was transformed into something truly magical.
Tradeworks was thrilled to have a table at the event, and the Christmas ornaments were a great hit! Thank you to the University Women’s Club for having us.
