3rd Annual Fall Craft Fair hits Tri-Township Park
By Devese “Dee” Ursery, Reporter
Local crafters from around the Tri-Township arena came to the Activity Center on Saturday to show off their wares.
At the 3rd Annual Fall Craft Fair, artisans from Troy and surrounding communities set up booths beginning at 8 a.m, both inside and outside of the center at Tri-Township Park, to promote and sell their hand-made crafts. There were an estimated 20 to 25 vendors set up inside, while about 20 vendors set up shop outside.
The St. Ann’s group with St Jerome’s Catholic Church was the top seller at the fair selling out of their goods. The group prepared different baskets with a variety of items in them. Some baskets had coloring books, crayons and other things children could enjoy, while other baskets had hygiene products or carried household cleaning supplies.
Other local vendors also came out to promote their goods and handiwork, such as Big T’s Honey Bee Farm and Norwex, a company that manufactures “green” cleaning supplies.
The Fair opened at 8 a.m and closed at 2 p.m. Admission into the fair was $1 or a nonperishable food item for donation.
