The Vavenby Craft Fair, organized by Barb Pennell was held on Sunday, Nov. 4 from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the Vavenby Community Hall. There were 12 vendors and a concession run by Pennell. One could satisfy their hunger and thirst by buying hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate.  As soon as the doors opened a lot of smiling people came rushing in. Pennell wondered how many might have forgotten about the time change the night before.

Available for purchase was homemade jewellery by Joanna Weber, Ecki’s wood carvings, cards, pendants, and other art work by him, Watkins, Avon, Dreams and Delusions art work, and hand crafted canes and wire puzzles made by Joe Schulte. Both thrift stores had tables. Marshall Peebles and Antoine Ellis volunteered their time at the Fine Things Thrift Store table to be used towards high school community service hours that all students now have to earn. There were a lot of tables with blankets, knitted hats, gloves, children’s jackets, and Christmas decorations. Maryse and Johan Raes of Clearwater were selling their delicious homemade Belgian chocolates and candies.

One table was run by three young sisters – Shenelle, Tamaralee, and Lisalee Campbell – who had crocheted purses, hats, doll clothes, and a backpack for sale. All items were one of a kind.

 

It was busy all day long and the vendors were happy with the number of their sales. At one point everyone focussed on Lisalee Campbell instead of purchases as she sang a song called  Listen to the Crowd.
