Thousands turn out for handworks holiday show

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Thousands came out to Jackson this weekend to get a head start on their holiday shopping.

They visited the Handworks Holiday Craft Show and Sale at the Trademart. One hundred sixty two vendors had goods they cooked, sewed, painted, plucked, or otherwise made themselves!

There's no retail markup for the goods. Organizers say the prices are great and the quality is excellent. "A few (of the vendors) have stores, a few have just gotten started," says Handworks promoter Janie Giffin.  "The show has been around for 27 years, so most have been with us a long time."

The show went until 4:00 Saturday afternoon, and most people found the perfect holiday gift for plenty of people on their list.
