(WBRE/WYOU-TV) The holidays are just around the corner and what better time to get crafty!
Eyewitness News Reporter, Anja Whitehead stopped by , Mountain View School District as they prepared for their craft fair this weekend.
It’s all handcrafted and locally made. Whether it’s recycled metal, crocheted plushies, or even wood turned to art, the mountain view craft fair will have it all.
“Right between Binghamton and Scranton, it’s a beautiful drive, and it’s a great day for the family, it’s free admission, you can come to browse. You can have lunch, buy some goodies” Kris Snyder, President Mountain View PTO
Al and Bambi’s Handcrafted Wood from nearby hop bottom, feel at home at this craft fair.
“I work here in the school so it just seems natural to just come up and help them out every year,” Said Bambi Schack.
Every artist has their own technique for their craft.
Many focus on wood
“Most of my work is done on a wood lathe. I turn the piece of wood and you chew it out and sand it off, and end up with bowls and French rolling pins. All kinds of wood goodies.” Noted Larry Mack, Wood Crafter.
Not only will you be able to start your holiday shopping early, but you can also grab a bite to eat.
“We always have a wide variety, like brownies cookies, pies, cakes, cupcakes, anything that you need for your sweet tooth,” said Connie Milunic, Treasurer Mountain View PTO
So if you’re looking for a unique gift for that special someone, head to Mountain View Elementary.
“Help support local vendors, it is a great family time.” Said Milunic.
Mountain View’s Craft Fair will be held Saturday from 10 to 3 at Mountain View Elementary on Route 106 in Kingsley. It’s free admission and all are welcomed
