“In the last few years, we’ve had a very nice turn out of vendors and the community seems to like having a craft fair this time of year,” said Cheryl Gawronski, fire company member, a long-time fire police member and chairperson for the event. “Most craft fairs happen closer to the holidays, so it’s nice to have one in the spring when we’re not pressured to purchase Christmas presents at the last minute. Spring is a good time for browsing and shopping leisurely.”
As in years past the crafters will bring their handmade wares such as needlework, jewelry, stationary and photography and will be side-by-side with gift vendors selling Tastefully Simple, Longaberger Baskets, Scentsy and Mary Kay Cosmetics, to name a few items.
The Springtown Volunteer Fire Company Auxiliary will be serving homemade lunch items along with their famous desserts. All food is available for take-out.
