SUPER SATURDAY IN CHEROKEE Plans are underway to get an arts and crafts fair started in Cherokee. So set aside Saturday, October 18th to participate or attend the first annual or bi-annual SUPER SATURDAY IN CHEROKEE.
There are many local artisans and crafters that don’t get the publicity they need. Cherokee isn’t too small to grow into something that will make people want to join or visit us on special days. This has been in the talking stages for a long time.
Now is the time to act and get something done. We have the highway frontage and even with the high price of gasoline, traffic is growing on highway 16 and FM501.
People are looking for the less traveled routes these days. The rural area of the hill country is our best drawing card.It has not been decided yet as to whether to include antiques and collectables.
But garage sales should be scheduled at another time. Garage sales and yard sales will discourage the better artisans to come and we want to attract people who are looking for quality goods.
We are working on areas where one can set up. For this first show there will be no charge for spaces for people to set up their wares.
If you or anyone you know would like to participate we want to hear from you. If you or anyone you know want to be involved in any other way we want to hear from you too. Please tell everyone you know that live elsewhere to help spread the word.
As usual we don’t have the funds to highly advertise, so word of mouth is what it is going to take to get this off the ground. More information will be available as plans materialize. For questions and other information please contact Sue Broyles at 325/622-4242.
