Description: The Owen Middle School will hold its Holiday Craft Fair at 730 Old US 70, in Swannanoa, NC on December 9th, 2017 from 10am - 4pm. Now in its 12th year, the annual Owen Holiday Craft Fair features arts and crafts handmade by professional artisans, likely including pottery, blown glass, doll outfits, toys, jewelry and wearable art, carved wooden items and home decorative items. The Owen Craft Fair holds a special place in Melissa Duarte and daughter Sarah Grace’s holiday calendar. Each year, they purchase a felted decorative item, handmade by Owen Middle School students.

“We love to support the artisans and the school, and it is such a friendly community event,” Melissa said. Like many in the Valley, they would not miss the annual event. On Dec. 9, close to 50 vendors will fill the school gym with their creations. At one vendor table, guests will find the wire and beaded earrings made by third-year crafts fair participant Elizabeth Walton of Red Ren Jewelry. Walton is a mere 13 years old, but she is succeeding as a teen entrepreneur, having recently added new items to her line, thanks to a home-school entrepreneurship class. She likes the craft fair because of how friendly people there are.
