GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) The holiday season came to the Grand Valley a little early thanks to the annual craft fair at Holy Family Catholic School.

More than 90 vendors lined the gym and the halls selling handmade items ranging from Christmas ornaments and wreaths to any-season jewelry and bowls.

Artists hailed from all over the state and even Utah to show off their crafts.

"I basically just do this for fun. It’s kind of my outlet," said Racelle Row, who sold deco-mesh wreaths at Saturday's event. "I love doing crafts and just using my imagination to come up with different ideas and things I think people would like."

The proceeds from the event benefit Holy Family Catholic School. Event organizers said they usually raise more than 15 thousand dollars from the annual fair.
