Thank you to our Vendors for taking the time to help make our event extra special! I hope you all had a great time and it was well worth it for you all. We had 15 vendor or fundraiser booths with so many amazing creations and products to offer. I will have a separate post dedicated to just our vendors, including photos and where to find them in case you saw something you liked! I’m thinking Christmas shopping! I know I found some unique presents there.
