The committee served delicious potato soup or hamburger veggie soup with a bun, coffee, juice or hot chocolate which the buyers enjoyed wile visiting friends they haven’t seen forever!

Then on Dec. 1 about 12 vendors set up in the school gym in the Tsi Del Del community to sell their wares, jewellery, baked goods, popcorn calendars, goodie snacks were available to buy.

Coffee was free and the $5 Indian Tacos were enjoyed by all at noon … sooo good!

The roads were a bit questionable in the morning but the road service crew had them well sanded.

Thank goodness, the weather was very warm, making the walkways literally sheets of ice.

This craft fair had a lot of bargaining going on or trades of goods and everyone left happy with themselves.
