The third annual Holiday at “The Station” will be held on Saturday at Iron Station Elementary School. Organized by the school’s PTA, the craft fair will feature 63 vendors, with over 40 of them being local, one of a kind handmade items, including goat’s milk soap, pottery, wood items, ornaments, jams, jellies, crochet items, crystal jewelry, wreaths and much more.
The PTA uses the funds from the vendor fee, the 50/50 raffle and food sales to give back to the school.
“We assist the school in any way that we can,” PTA member Kacie Buckner said. “This year we did beautification on the playgrounds. We help with technology – last year we helped purchase some of the Chromebooks. This year we’re planning on helping with Smart TVs to make sure every classroom has one. Anything that the school needs, we try to help with.”
There will also be a variety of direct sales vendors selling essential oils, makeup, kitchen tools and storage. Some of the vendors are Nana's Escentials, MJ's Jams & Jellies, Made in the South, and Hodge Podge Shop.
The PTA will be selling food all day. There will be biscuits in the morning and hot dogs with all the fixings for lunch. Other snacks, drinks and homemade baked goods will be available as well.
Iron Station Elementary is located at 4203 East Highway 27 in Iron Station. The craft fair will run from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16.
