The season of shopping is upon us and there is no better place to start than the 4th Annual Boyd County Christmas Craft & Boutique Show hosted by Trindy B Boutique. This year’s show is two days, Friday, November 11 from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, November 12 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The show is located at the Boyd County Convention Center, just past the Flying J at Cannonsburg, KY.
With over 80 vendors participating, you can be sure there is something for everyone! Tara Heffner, event promoter tells us, “We have everything from handmade crafts that will feature seasonal wreaths, home décor, jewelry, soaps, and hand-painted Christmas décor, to your favorite direct market products such as Tupperware, Pampered Chef, Mary Kay, Lipsense and many more…just too many to mention.” A complete listing of crafters and vendors can be found on Facebook at Trindy B Boutique.
Larry Keaton with Uneek Kraftz has been doing the show since its first year. “We always enjoy being a part of this event. It is well organized and a wonderful way to kick off the Christmas shopping season.” Larry and his wife Ellen will be doing double duty on Friday of this year. They are also known in the area as The Gospel Tide and will be singing at 6:30 p.m. as a part of the Gospel Concert during the event.
Host Tara Heffner is committed with her vendors to shine the light of Jesus and spread the gospel through her events, "It is our hope that by sharing the love of Jesus we will win souls and offer hope to those who may be hurting.” To accomplish this goal, last year she added a Gospel Concert to the event on Friday and we will continue that tradition this year. “Everyone loved the gospel music so we decided to do it again this year.”
Saturday’s event will feature Dance Performances from area studios. Dance with Hope at 11:30 a.m., True Impact Dance Studio at noon, and Bridget’s Dance Studio at 12:30 p.m. A seating area will be provided at the stage for these showcases.
Bobby and Mary Legge with Ghostly Gourmet will be hosting the kitchen featuring Bobby’s famous pulled pork, loaded pulled pork, baked potato, loaded nachos and so much more. You can shop and then take home dinner to the family. The first 50 shoppers each day will receive a free tote bag. You can also purchase a raffle ticket for a large Bluetooth Speaker and a set of JBL wireless headphones with the proceeds for the raffle going to Walk-FM radio for their ministry. Admission to the event is free. In closing, Tara adds, “Let’s bring this Christmas Season in the right way, by celebrating the reason for the Season, which is Jesus! See you at the show!”
