Holiday shoppers are reminded of the annual fall craft fair, set for this Saturday, Nov. 17, at the Rector Community Center. The doors will open at 9 a.m. to the public, as the popular event is continued for this year. There is no charge for admission.

As this year's event kicks-off, organizers note a quick breakfast will be offered by the community center committee. Lunch treats for hungry shoppers will also be available in the dining room. As Autumn’s palate of yellow, orange and red is spread across the trees in northeast Arkansas, temperatures are now pleasant enough for easy hiking and outdoor adventures, which must include shopping at local craft fairs.

“The Crockett Multi-Purpose Room will be arranged, as usual, with rows and rows of vendors,” a community center spokesperson noted. “Not only will craft items be ready for purchase but vendors with home-business brands will offer their products for sale. Door prizes are awarded each hour with a ticket purchase, although admission to the fair is free.”

Once again this yeare, vendors include usual favorites such as beautiful jewelry, crafted mailboxes, art canvases, wooden door hangers and gorgeous wreaths. LulaRoe fashions, Scentsy, Pampered Chef, Etched glass kitchen and tableware will be available. Craft fair shoppers will also be tempted with hand-made glass art, sewing projects, quilts, and wood crafts along with homemade bread and candy. Christmas items will be available as will t-shirts and baked goods.

“Impulse buying and checking-off items on a gift list are most enjoyable when shopping with friends, so gather your shopping buddies on Saturday and enjoy the day at Rector’s Fall Craft Fair at the Rector Community Center,” the spokesperson concluded.

The event is held each fall as a fundraiser for the community center, with the proceeds paying for a number of recent upgrades and projects.
