No craft fair in Imperial this year PDF Print E-mail

The Imperial Chamber of Commerce has decided to cancel the annual craft fair this year, usually held the first Saturday in November.
“There’s just no interest,” Sue Moore of the Chamber said. “Last year there were four crafters and the rest were commercial. It wasn’t full at all.”
Bev Anderson, chair of last year’s event, said “We have less and less vendors coming and less buyers. You can buy just about anything on the Internet now.”
She added that most of the recent vendors have been commercial, not offering homemade crafts.
Anderson said at this point the Chamber isn’t planning a project to replace the craft fair. She added that the craft fair is probably shelved permanently.
