Craft show notes| What’s happened? Just a couple of years ago, the Chamber-sponsored Antique Art and Craft Show stretched all the way to Third Street. Yesterday’s event yielded a lot fewer vendors and Customers. During several hours ambling about there, we overheard a woman on her mobile phone telling someone, “Don’t bother, there’s not a lot here.” At the end of the day, one vendor offered he’d had “zero sales” for the day. And the day ended quicker than the posted 2:00 pm for some vendors as the above photo, snapped around 1:30 shows. The Columbia Concerned Citizens Association (CCCA) awarded a nifty, retro bike as a fund-raising prize.
