Halloween Craft Fair

Growing & Making a Difference

Deidra Bowling-Meade Ashland Beacon 

Come join the Spooktacular Safe Trick-or-Treat Halloween Craft Fair on Saturday, October 22, 2022, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m at El Hasa Shriners Temple located at 13450 St. Rt 180.  If you’re looking for a fun-filled event for this Halloween season that serves a good cause, make sure to attend this event hosted by Kimskreations Boutique LLC. Over 90 vendors will be dressed up to pass out goodies, and The Pig’s Blanket will be serving their delicious food. Hayrides will be offered for $5, and children may pick a pumpkin in the field.  The first 50 children will receive a bag and the first 40 adults will receive a tote for all the goodies.  Raffle drawings for prizes brought by the vendors will be held after the event.  The grand prize drawing is for a $500 Great Wolf Lodge gift card.  All proceeds will go to the Shriners.

The vendor fairs held by Kimskreations are one of the best events to attend due to the giving heart of Boyd County native Kimberly Green, who owns Kimskreations.  Green has used her expertise over the last four years to start vendor fairs that support charities.  Green discussed how her journey started:  “I began making different crafts from home decor,  wreaths,  pillows, signs, and engraving cups for companies like Clay’s Performance Construction and Try America, which are my biggest supporters.  Being a stay-at-home mother was getting the best of me.  I needed to find something hands-on to help with my anxiety and everyday stress.  I have always loved to decorate, and I’m very crafty. I figured I had nothing to lose.  I began on this journey and found out I enjoyed it and was good at it.  But, there was so much more I wanted to do.  I wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone so to speak and add more to it.  I decided to host my event and donate all the proceeds from raffles to a charity.  Four years later, the events are growing and making a difference one event at a time.”

Green books the events a year in advance at El Hasa Temple and the Boyd Convention and Art Center. She sponsors four events a year. Proceeds from the events at El Hasa go to the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital or other causes the Shriners support.  The events at Boyd Convention and Art Center go to local areas of need.  Green stated, “I always pick where I feel it is needed most at the time. I have donated to Rally for Rusty, Adison Fitzgerald when she lost her father Eddie Fitzgerald, and Karen’s Place. I also took the money and bought over 20+ cans of formula, diapers, and wipes.  It was a load we have donated to the Western Kentucky storm and Eastern Kentucky for victims.”

Green has many repeat vendors and always has some new ones too.  The events are an excellent opportunity for vendors to meet new people and increase their clientele.

     Ramona Bellew is an independent beauty consultant, who has been participating for three years.  Bellew affirmed, “They are wonderful events because she brings in so many vendors that cover everything from beauty to jewelry, local artists and crafters, Tupperware, clothing, home decor, candles, food vendors, purses, about anything you can think of having there. With each event, Kim’s family is very involved, and they donate proceeds to a worthy cause in our Tri-State area. I’m excited about the October Event, because we are providing a safe trick-or-treat day for children, which is great for the community and parents.”
