Lorri Minton counts the money one more time before handing it to a customer.

The parking lot was full of vacant cars, while Christmas Craft goers were busy going from room to room to look at unique gifts.

On Saturday, the Golden Hour Senior Center hosted its annual Christmas Craft Fair. Each room was packed from front to back with tables full of assorted crafts, candles, nick knacks, essential oils, pottery, glasswork, fossils and Christmas decorations.

Ruby Chambers of Ruby's Fine Gifts was busy selling inventory she had stored in her house.

Chambers said she was there for three reasons: to share inventory she has, get back the space in her garage and for her son who was diagnosed with Lyme Disease.

Chambers said she has more than 40 boxes occupying her garage and it's time to sell those wonderful items.

"I just have boxes of things left that I'd rather sell people to enjoy," Chambers said.

Even though most of her items Christmas, she also had garden-themed, spring, Mother's Day and Easter gifts.

Lorri Minton, a crocheter of 20 years and owner of Lorri's Crafts, had purses, hats, diaper bags and other crocheted items all aligned in a row in an attempt to sell as much as she could.

One item she was selling a lot of was the diaper bag. She only had two left and there were a few more hours of the fair left.

"I've got to get rid of my stuff," Minton said.

Minton said some of the items she crocheted from patterns she bought, while others she came up with on her own.

In a table next to Minton, was another crocheter Julie Luck. Luck was busying trying to sell Frozen and owl hats.

"I sold a ton of those last year," Luck said about the Frozen hats.

Luck also had a lot of different crocheted cowboy boots to pick from, but her car hats were all gone.
