Crafty vendors from all around the southeast came together for the 34th annual craft show in the Wylie Mitchell and Exhibition halls to strut their stuff, and do a booming business with a wide variety of folks who love handmade artistry.

It was organized, as always, by the Kinnettes club, and Jannelle Luddington was pleased once again with the turnout.

Lyle McGillivray and his photos was a popular stop in the Exhibition hall.

"We've got 72 vendors in both buildings, which has grown. We've had a few more since last year, and that is nice. It's a large variety, a lot of different types of vendors. Something that's kind of neat about the craft show is that the majority of them are all local, and there's a lot of different things in Saskatchewan that we can offer."

She mainly attributes the increased success to the reconfiguration of the layout, being able to add a couple more booths and such.

"It's always a successful show. Last year we had just over 1,000 people come through the door, and I'd say we'd have about the same this year. It's nice to see how many people support the community. With the Kinnettes, we are here to support the greatest needs, so it's nice to have the support so we can keep funding different things in the community."

Everything from health products to holiday decorations and more was available for viewing and purchase.
