While it may not be filled as with much hustle and bustle as some craft fairs, the Cataline Christmas Craft Fair still proved to be an attractive and enjoyable stop over the weekend.

Held each year to raise money for the students of the school, this year specifically to raise funds for playground equipment, the Cataline Christmas Craft Fair boasted a few dozen vendors and a great concession. From handmade goods to small businesses, there was a little of everything at the market for the steady throngs of people that made their way around the gym’s floor.
