Michele Keeler, chairwoman, said 70 craft dealers will have many unusual items for sale. They will include personalized mailboxes, butterfly houses, filled baskets, cat and dog beds and personalized children's books with your child's name inserted throughout the story. Doll clothes, Beanie Babies, jewelry, quilts, ceramics, decorated sweat shirts, linens, crochet items, scarves and pillows are just a few of the items that will be available. Tables will be set up in the cafeteria and lobby.

Proceeds will go toward the Parent-Booster Club's scholarship fund for graduating seniors.
