Vendors and patrons alike enjoy a day of outdoor sales and shopping last Saturday during the Tug Valley Chamber of Commerce’s first Open-Air Arts and Crafts Market. The event, held at at Lefty Hamilton Park in West Williamson, was an opportunity for local artisans who have had limited events because of COVID-19 restrictions to sell their crafts and for local residents to have a day of activity in a safe and responsible manner. The event, according to Chamber President Chris Dotson, was very much a success based on two factors -- the vendors had a good sales day and patons enjoyed the experience. The market had steady traffic throughout the entire day and Dotson said the Chamber is considering making it an annual event. Shoppers were able to choose from a wide variety of paintings, woodworking from ornament size to furniture pieces, home decor, sculpture pieces, handmade jewelry, fresh baked goods, hand-forged items, photography and more.
