JONESVILLE — Last minute holiday shoppers had a great opportunity to pick some extra gifts on Saturday at the third annual craft show hosted by the Jonesville Historical Society.

“It’s an amazing turnout so close to Christmas,”said organizer Judy Wolfe. “This is by far the best in terms of participation.”

Vendors were on hand at the Yadkin Valley Senior Center for the fair selling everything from Tupperware to cakes, cookbooks to jewelry.

The ladies from the Starmount Class of 1970 participated in the event selling their new cookbook “Ramalicious,” which is already in its second printing.

“We love every opportunity to bring attention to our cookbook because it’s such a wonderful representation of our class,” said Judy Deck. “We loved putting it together. We love sharing it with the community and we love being able to let people know that we have 868 of the best recipes from the best cooks in Yadkin County.”

There was praise from vendors on the organization of the event.

Mary Tilley said she has had her jewelry booth at multiple events hosted by the historical society.

“Judy’s amazing. She’s always really good to us. She works so hard,” Tilley said.

Tilley said she, too, was pleased with the good turnout for the event.

The event is expected to be repeated again next holiday season.
