Copeland said that at least 90 percent of the vendors did good business during the show, held on Saturday, Oct. 30, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 31, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Copeland also estimated that roughly 3,000 people attended the show, and added that vendors probably sent at least 100 of those people to downtown Cadiz, which he stated probably helped a few downtown businesses.
Artists from many fields sold items at the fair, from potters, sculptors, woodworkers, metalworkers and painters to jewelers, toymakers, and people who work with cloth and even a cider maker and those that work with glass, Copeland said.
“Years ago, we decided we needed to do a show,” Copeland said. “There are a large number of crafters, some of them internationally known, and they’re unknown in Trigg County … We started the show, basically, to showcase local crafters.”
There are a few local artists that, while internationally known for their work, have not always quite as famous in Trigg County, said Copeland.
