Let’s go shopping tomorrow, Saturday, November 12th, at the Knights of Columbus/Koerber Hall at Highway 63 N and 6th Street, at Vienna, Missouri. More than 50 mostly handcrafted and a handful of direct market vendors on site will be selling everything from adult clothing to baby items, hand-made greeting cards, art work, signs, children’s clothing and toys, gourmet food items, hand-poured candles, jewelry, purses, quilts and sewing items, barn quilt signs, and much more.

There is room for only 52 booths in the hall, so they are selected carefully, says Lisa Jones, who promotes the show. For the first time this year, an Amish buggy with barn quilt signs will be there. Lisa says many women’s boutiques are appealing, including diverse jewelry booths, such as those featuring hand-crafted jewelry from silver, clay, leather, among others.

Lisa Jones, who makes greeting cards, will be there, and she says one vendor she’s looking forward to seeing is the lady who hand-pours candles. Her favorite might be the one named “My First Husband,” and Lisa says, ‘It smells like a wonderful man.” By the way, the candle-maker is still married to her first husband. Hand-sewn hair accessories and other items will also be available.

Handmade wooden crafts will include decor, signs, wooden bowls, charcuterie boards, and more. Kitchenware, jams and jellies, hand-made soaps and more are also available.
