The annual event was held Saturday at the Trigg County Recreation Complex. Each vendor had a table or two showing off their wares or displays showing the benefits of their clubs or nonprofit groups. Homemakers President Tish Rudd said this year’s event featured more than 70 vendors. Rudd was serving not only as the president but also helped man the Trigg County Quilters Guild table, where she was handing out bookmarks telling what times the guild’s various groups met. Rudd there was a very good turnout this year. Although there was still a decent amount of people walking around at about 1 p.m., she said the crowd typically thins out a little after lunchtime.
“I got here at eleven and you could barely walk through,” said Debbie Clark, another guild member.
Many booths were sponsored by traditional businesses such as banks and grocery stores, but a few were from smaller entities. Mildred Grasty sat at a table featuring Millie’s House Pieces, furniture she painted and sells from her home. She said she usually sells her pieces at arts and crafts shows and galleries, as well as a few at Hot Diggity Dog. Grasty said she started making the furniture in 1989 and the colors are all from the Gulf of Mexico. They all feature pastoral setting with geographic patterns. One piece of furniture she displayed featured the shape of Kentucky and another featured Trigg County.
