The Ashland Beacon
According to the words of a very familiar Christmas song, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.” That will definitely be the case this Saturday, November 19 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. when the Ashland High School Gymnasium will become a winter wonderland of all things Christmas for your shopping pleasure.
“This is the second year for the event. Last year we used the lobby area for our show but we have added more vendors this year and have moved into the gym to allow more room.” Event coordinator, Lory Scarberry continued, “we have such great variety of vendors for all your Christmas needs. There will be Christmas door hangers & wreaths, candles, t-shirts, soaps, cups, wax tarts, badge reels, jewelry and this is just the small list of items available.”
The craft show proceeds will be used for the Ashland Tomcat wrestling program. Scarberry explained that the vendors all pay a fee to the program for their booth, allowing the public free admission to the event. However, donations to the wrestling program will be gladly accepted. “Our vendors are wonderful about supporting our program, we just want to encourage everyone to come out and support them throughout the day.” There will be several raffles of items throughout the day that were donated by the vendors also.
Ghostly Gourmet will be hosting the kitchen for the event. Bobby and Mary Legge offer a great variety of food at these events, very reasonably priced. Once you have tried their menu items it is certain you will follow where they will be setup and selling if only to have lunch with them. A dining area will be in the lobby so you can sit and enjoy your food before going back to more shopping.
Santa will make a special appearance from the North Pole from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. Parents may take photos with Santa on your personal devices for free. Cogan Photography will be setup next to Santa and doing Christmas Minis during the event. Minis will be digital images with prices ranging from $10 - $25. You can choose to include Santa in your mini session also if desired.
Vendor space is still available if you would like to join the event. Please contact Lory Scarberry at 606.615.3743 for information. Don’t miss this unique shopping experience and the opportunity to shop small, shop local, and support the Ashland Wrestling Team.
