5th Annual Sweets & Shopping Vendor, Crafter Show Has Major Turnout

Immanuel Lutheran School had a huge turn out today as locals enjoyed the 5th Annual Sweets and Shopping Vendor Crafter Show.

Shoppers got a chance to enjoy all of their favorite home party vendors plus find unique gifts for the upcoming holidays.

The vendor show was a great way to relieve moms from stress with a free childcare service on hand.

Organizer, Leanne Bloom said she created the show as a great way to shop without feeling pressures that some may feel when buying or hosting a vendor party.

“When you have a party what’s the first thing you do? ‘I gotta clean my house.’ nobody wants to clean their house and people want their friends to come over and they don’t want them to feel like they have to buy something or be sold to. So when people come to these kinds of events it’s really nice because they get a chance to shop and they can look at things and a lot of times people that come to these events do end up having a party anyways because they fell in love with something here,” Bloom explained.

Some of today’s vendors included Linen World, Origami Owl, Thirty-One Gifts, Tupperware and more.

There were over 40 vendors at today’s show.
