Millinocket artisan craft fair is a big hit Featured

Written by

MILLINOCKET - With thousands of people in Millinocket for the marathon this weekend, local crafters took advantage of all the foot traffic.

The artisan craft fair brings over 40 vendors together to sell locally made products.

 

It's grown in size since it began three years ago and attracts many of the guests in town for the weekend.

 

Co-organizer Lynn Beaulier said, "The people are awesome, the runners are fantastic. It's just one of those things. The town's just embraced everybody, so what can you say? It's just, it's fantastic."

 

All of the products sold are hand-made by people in the Katahdin region.

 

The two-day fair ended Saturday and took place in the Stearns High School gymnasium.

 

Donations were accepted at the door, all of which goes towards the high school's senior class.
