Visited the Shenandoah Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Holiday Bazaar Craft Show yesterday. Craft shows of almost any type are always fun and inspiring, but local shows have the added benefit of keeping money within the community.
I believe there were 50 or so vendors. Most booths appeared to include handcrafted-by-the vendor items. There were a few that appeared to feature resale, but that can happen in almost any craft show.
My first purchase was a two-pound container of honey for $11 from a local Edinburg producer. I also picked up 4 hand-tatted snowflakes for $15, 3 ears of basket-woven “Indian Corn” for $12, and finally, for only .50, a handsewn gift bag. In addition, there were booths with candy, flower arrangements, pottery, afghans, and stained glass.
The craft Show benefits Shenandoah Memorial Hospital. Hope to see you there next year!*** This personal blog is comprised solely of the opinions, views, projects, and travels of its author, Stacey Morgan Smith.
