The 42nd annual craft sale brought out a good crowd on Nov. 26 – 27.

Both gyms were filled with vendors as visitors made their way along the isles at Fort St. James Secondary School.

One of the largest craft sales known in British Columbia brought out local vendors as well as from: Burns Lake, Prince George, Smithers, Vanderhoof and Fraser Lake.

Many were out shopping for Christmas gifts while others were just happy to take a peak and perhaps find something unique.

Whether it was pottery, paintings, woodwork, baked goods or children’s toys, there was much to choose from.

With help from the Stuart Lake Seniors Association, all funds raised support the high school graduating class of 2016.
