Bradford craft sale showcases local artisans

From jewelry and candles, to leggings and essential oils, the craft sale had a lot to offer.

Bradford United Church hosted its annual Artisan and Vendors Fair on Saturday — a showcase for local artisans and entrepreneurs, with plenty of gift ideas for Mother’s Day.

Along with Scentsy candles, SweetLegs Leggings, Arbonne and DoTerra Essential oils, there were handcrafted décor items, children’s toys, afghans and knitted items, original photographic note cards and handmade jewellery.

Orlene Fost came all the way from Wasaga Beach to sell her hand-made stained glass night lights.

She discovered the craft 30 years ago while at home with her young children: “I made my Christmas gifts,” she said. “A lady down the street showed me how to make a stained glass Christmas boot, and that was the start.”

There was also plenty of talent from closer to home.

The Bradford United Church Women set up a colorful display of quilts and quilted items on sale to raise money for the church and its programs.
