The Kewaskum Area Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a Craft and Vendor Expo at Kewaskum Elementary School, 1415 Bilgo Lane in Kewaskum, this Sunday, Nov. 18, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission and parking are free.
There will be more than 55 crafters and vendors featured at the expo, making it the largest craft show the Kewaskum Chamber has ever hosted. “We have rock-star crafters. Now we need rock-star shoppers,” event organizer Kelly Goeden said.
There will be a wide variety of products offered, from wooden crafts and knit items to candles, soaps and handmade jewelry. There will be on-thespot personalized gift items and repurposed items.
Shoppers will find a variety of gifts, such as alcohol ink art, bags, wallets, metal art, wooden benches, burlap wreaths, candle stands, ribbon flower arrangements, sewn and quilted items, glass jar snowmen and crocheted items.
In addition, there will be unique opportunities to create things at the expo. For example, there will be a “make it and take it” board class. In addition, there will be different vendors selling Tupperware, Creative Memories, Scentsy, Young Living Essential Oils, Norwax and Mary Kay products.
There will even be natural pet treats for sale. “You can get your whole Christmas shopping list done here,” said Wendi Dreher of the Kewaskum Area Chamber of Commerce. Shoppers will get a chance to have some tasty food and beverages as well.
New this year, Hon-E-Kor will have virgin Bloody Marys and warm ciders available at the event. Coffee Corner will offer flavored coffees, muffins, scones and bakery items.
In addition, Cub Scouts will sell soups and sandwiches. “We hope a lot of people can come and enjoy the expo. A small town wants to be able to host these great events. Now people need to come out to support it and shop local,” Dreher said.
