Registration closes later this month for the 48th annual Children’s Craft Fair, an open-air market where children can learn entrepreneurial skills by selling homemade items and services such as jewelry or artwork.

Children age 13 and younger can register free through July 26 for a booth at the fair, which is 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, July 29, on the lawn behind the Bellingham Public Library, 210 Central Ave. Register at the library or online at bellinghampubliclibrary.org/children/Events/SR/craftfair.aspx.

Vendors keep all of the money they make. Vendors must supply a table or booth, chairs, and any other furniture. Space limit of 6 feet is requested. Maximum charge for any item is $4.

In case of rain, the fair will be 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, Aug. 5.
