LITTLE ELM — Shoppers who have become skeptical of expressions like “one-of-a-kind” and “unique” and who’ve perhaps given up on finding that truly “can’t-be-found-anywhere-else” item should put the Little Elm Senior Craft Fair on their must-go calendars.


The annual fair is set for Oct. 7 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Little Elm Senior Citizen Center, 301 Main St.


“Our home-grown vendors are gearing up for the craft fair by putting the finishing touches on their creations,” said Senior Center Supervisor Annette Carrico. “Many have been working on these truly unique creations for several months, looking forward to seeing their work in the hands of people who appreciate their meticulous attention to detail.”


The 2017 version of the craft fair promises to be among the largest and perhaps the best representation of the work of the senior participants. Vendors will be displaying, and offering for sale, handmade articles that reflect their own thoughtful creative innovation. These include wheel-thrown pottery, quilts and quilted items, knitted objects, holiday-themed gifts, one-of-a-kind jewelry and many other handcrafted items.


Entry into the craft fair is free, and food and drinks will be available for purchase.


The Little Elm Senior Center is operated by the Town of Little Elm, and is open year-round, providing a place for area senior citizens to gather for socialization, education and entertainment.
