Plans are being finalized for this weekend's 43rd annual Holiday Expo & Craft Bazaar, sponsored by the General Federation of Womens' Clubs of Tennessee Greeneville Woman's Club.
The event at Hal Henard Elementary School is set for Saturday, Nov. 2, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 3., from noon to 5 p.m.
Admission is $3 for a single-day pass and $5 for a weekend pass.
Children 12 and under are admitted free.
There will be more than 80 local artists and vendors for handcrafted and manufactured goods for home and family.
Delicious food will be served, lots of door prizes awarded, and holiday music will fill the air, according to Crystal Hirschy and Sam Travis, co-chairmen of the annual event.
This year, they said, the club is proud to present a beautiful personalized ornament made by local crafter Jimmy Rader.
The wooden disc ornament features a Christmas tree cut-out and can be personalized, as all of the ornaments have been for the past 42 years.
According to Hirschy, "We are so proud to have a local craftsman make our ornaments this year, and the club members assisted in completing them."
Rader, who has been participating in the Holiday Bazaar since 2009, says he thoroughly enjoys his hobby, which has turned into a business.
All monies realized from the annual event, the spokespersons said, go back into the community in the areas of work of the federated club: arts, conservation, education, home life, international affairs, and public affairs.
