Linglestown Gazette: Unique craft fair on tap Saturday

Unique craft fair on tap Saturday

I’ve been to dozens of craft fairs during my married life. My wife loves to go to them in hopes of finding something unique to decorate our home, and I usually serve as her chauffeur. To me, if I've seen one craft fair, I've seen them all. But a notice crossed my desk today about one that just might go way beyond what normally is offered at local events. Check this out …

Linglestown Life church will host the Red Bird Mission Appalachian Crafts Fair this Saturday, September 27, from 9 am to 2 pm.

Red Bird Mission, started in 1921, serves over 14,00 residents in the Appalachian mountains of Southeastern Kentucky each year by providing educational, health, and community outreach ministries. The mission's craft program helps artisans that live within a sixty-mile radius of the mission in marketing their crafts and increasing their income.

A partial listing of crafts for sale may include … baskets made of native creekwillow and honeysuckle; cornshuck flowers, dolls and angels; jewelry made with custom pewter pieces; leather earrings; turned wooden utensils and pottery; wooden pull toys; soft dolls; woven placemats and coaster.

Linglestown Life is located at 1430 N. Mountain Road just ½ block north of the flagpole in the village of Linglestown.
