What a first-rate kick­off to this year’s hol­i­day sea­son! Show­cas­ing the tal­ents our area’s artists and crafts­peo­ple, the 16th An­nual Big Val­ley Christ­mas Show and Sale once again of­fered up a charm­ing ar­ray of unique arts, crafts, gifts and ser­vices.

The goods pre­sented en­com­passed an eclec­tic se­lec­tion of hand­crafted items such as knit­ting and cro­chet, at­trac­tive quilt­ing, and unique wood crafts in­clud­ing home dé­cor, scroll­work art, bird­feed­ers and bat houses. There were barn wood cre­ations, Christ­mas wreaths and or­na­ments and items of lo­cal in­ter­est such as the Big Val­ley Artists’ cal­en­dar, com­mu­nity cook­books, as­sorted his­tory books and the won­der­ful prints and paint­ings of the area’s tal­ented artists.

De­li­cious treats in­cluded the Royal Pur­ples’ fa­mous fruit­cakes with cook­ies, tarts, candy, pies and home canning round­ing out the se­lec­tions. Busi­ness was brisk at the 4-H bake ta­ble and as usual the gin­ger­snaps dis­ap­peared when your back was turned.

Big Val­ley once again demon­strated their great com­mu­nity spirit at the newly re­vived Li­brary Pie Sale. Home baked do­na­tions loaded down the ta­bles while the lineup to pur­chase pies be­gan al­most be­fore the event’s doors opened.

This event was well at­tended, at­tract­ing folks in­ter­ested in unique Christ­mas gifts, tasty treats, pleas­ant con­ver­sa­tion and an af­ter­noon out with friends.

Thank you to all the artists, crafts peo­ple and ven­dors who par­tic­i­pated, to the cus­tomers who vis­ited and pur­chased some beau- ti­ful items and to all the or­ga­niz­ers and vol­un­teers who helped to make this event such a big suc­cess.

Ev­ery­one is wel­come to at­tend this pop­u­lar an­nual event, though gifts are ar­ranged only for chil­dren 10 and un­der.
