This morning was an ugly day in Bloomsburg. It had been raining very hard since last evening. My daughters called me at 9:30 a.m. and asked if I'd like to go along with them to the fall craft show to be held at the Columbia Montour Area Vocational Technical School today. I think everyone in our town and the surrounding communities were there! There were more than a hundred crafters displaying and selling their wares. There were ghosts, goblins, Thanksgiving turkeys, and plenty of Santas and snowmen that were beautifully created and painted, many which were illuminated with sparkling white lights. In addition there were lovely hand made clothing items, handcrafted furniture, and decadent chocolates. A highlight of the show every year is the luncheon that is available that is prepared by the food preparation students of the school. Next weekend there will be a similar holiday craft show just across the hill at Central Columbia High School. Each year in late October and early November these events are a nice way to get into the holiday spirit.
If you are near Bloomsburg on one of these craft show Saturdays, make plans to stop by and find some nice things for your home to enjoy the spirit of the holidays.
