The “Up the Eynon” craft vendor show will be held on Sunday, Nov. 4, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Valley View High School, 1 Columbus Drive, Archbald. The event features over 40 vendors selling candles, jewelry, scarfs, maple syrup, custom tackle and bait items, handmade doll clothes, gift baskets and much more. Homemade food will be available and raffles.
“This is the third year for the ‘Up the Eynon’ Marketplace of crafters, vendors and food vendors,” said Judy Rudalavage, one of the organizers. “The show was orginally held on Business Route 6. The size of the event increased and along with its overwhelming attendance, we are now in a new location, the Valley View High School.”
New this year is the “Light Up a Life” Christmas tree” fundraiser. Each attendee will be able to purchase a named ornament in memory and honor of a loved one. The ornament will be displayed every year on the Christmas Tree at the gazebo on Betty and Thomas streets in Eynon during the Christmas Season. The cost of each ornament $5.
There will also be face painting for the kids.
The proceeds go to the Archbald Borough annual children’s Christmas Party to be held this year on Saturday, Nov. 24, at the Eynon-Sturges No. 3 Hose Co. A tree lighting service will take place followed by festivities of carriages rides a visit from Santa, music with food and refreshments.
“We must thank the Valley View school board members for the use of school and we must thank the business manager and maintenance manager for the ground set up for the show,” Rudalavage said.
Admission to the event is free. For more information, call 570-876-2423 or 570-876-3060.
