Shop for a Cause at the Southlake Craft Fair
The hallways of Carroll Senior High School will be filled again with vendors for this year’s Southlake Carroll Craft Fair. The fair is a two-day event, Saturday, Nov. 3 and Sunday Nov. 4. Hours vary each day.
This is the 20th anniversary of the Southlake Carroll Craft Fair and with nearly 250 vendors, the event proves to be better than ever. Some of the most popular items for sale include jewelry, holiday decor and food-related gifts. New items this year include officially licensed Carroll Dragon and Lacrosse items, golf memorabilia, American Girl doll clothes, unique handcrafted Christmas ornaments and apparel for your for-legged friends.
Vendor Chair Tonya Meyer said, “The Craft Fair is a well known and well attended event.”
Organizers say the Southlake Carroll Craft Fair is popular because of the wide selection of items not available anywhere else. Customers say they also enjoy getting their holiday shopping done early.
“Bring the whole family!” said Cristy White, also a Vendor Chair. ”The SLC PTO Craft Fair is a great opportunity to support the community and find some very unique gift items!”
The Southlake Carroll Craft Fair is a fundraiser for the Carroll High School PTO. Money raised by vendor application fees helps support Project Graduation, which is an all-night event aimed at keeping students safe on graduation night. In addition to the PTO, students volunteer to work the craft fair. Some students are also participating in the show as vendors: a group of boy scouts is selling wreaths, a student-run fundraiser is selling buttons and members of the Dragon Drama department will also have a booth.
“The Craft Fair is a great opportunity to find the perfect gift for everyone on your holiday list while also supporting the Class of 2013,” said Vendor Chair Pam Francis. “I encourage everyone to come out and shop the fair.”
The Southlake Carroll Craft Fair is inside Carroll Senior High School located at 1501 Southlake Boulevard. Hours are: Saturday, Nov. 3 9:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 4 11 a.m.- 5 p.m. For additional information, visit the craft fair website.
