Holiday Market And Craft Fair Provided Shopping Galore


Kayla Scott and her 4 children enjoyed scouting the Holiday Market and Craft Fair for bargains.

For those who enjoy the feeling of an open air market but didn't want to brave the chilly weather on November 21, the Bonners Ferry Farmers' Market Holiday Market and Craft Fair was the best of both worlds: an eclectic collection of unique items created by local artisans encompassed in the comfort of Boundary Middle School.

Meandering through the aisles lined with a wide variety of vendors, the Holiday Market and Craft fair provided many temptations in the way of gift ideas for the upcoming season. Handmade cards, candles, wood items, hand knitted hats and mittens, garden items, homemade preserves and fresh produce from well-known farms such as Ronnigers and Marsha's Cottage Garden provided ample opportunity to find something for everyone on the proverbial shopping list.

Kathi O'Leary and her friend Marc Clarke enlivened the atmosphere with accordion and percussion music, making the ambiance come alive with rollicking melodies.

Kathi and Marc added just the right touch of festivity with their toe tapping music.

"I've been loving the festive music," commented Laura Anderson whose hand painted gourds were a brisk seller. "Business has been good."

Tia Avery, well-known for her original jewelry collection "Tia's Treasures," concurred with Laura.

"We've had a lot of foot traffic," she said, "Everybody has been great."

Sora Huff, one of the founding mothers of the Farmers' Market who has been tempting shoppers with her Paradise Valley Organics baked good for years, was pleased with the attendance.

"We were mobbed earlier today," she laughed. "It's been great."
