THIS CRAFT SHOW IS IN BENTON MISSOURI AND IT IS OUR 13TH YEAR. ALL THE PROCEEDS GOES TO ST JUDES HOSPITAL AND ST DENIS 8TH GRADE CLASS. WE HAVE OVER 55 BOOTHS SOLD FOR THIS EVENT EVERY YEAR. HOME- MADE FOOD IS SERVED BREAKFAST AND LUNCH. WE GIVE AWAY FREE ATTENDANCE PRIZES ALL DAY LONG

THE SHOW WILL BE SATURDAY DECEMBER 1ST FROM 8:00A.M - 2:00P.M. WE GIVE AWAY A QUILT FROM ONE OF THE VENDORS, $100.00 CASH AND $25.00 GIFT CARD FROM WAL-MART. WE WILL GIVE AWAY A TOY BOX FULL OF TOYS ON THE DONATION BOOTH AND WE ALSO HAVE A 50/50. THIS IS A HUGE COMMUNITY EVENT NOW. PEOPLE COME FROM ALL OVER THIS AREA TO EAT AND PURCHASE QUALITY HAND MADE CRAFTS OF ALL KINDS. EVERYONE ENJOYS THEMSELVES BEING FROM THE CHRISTMAS ATMOSPHERE OR THE FOOD OR JUST SOCIALIZING WITH ALL THEIR FRIENDS. BENTON IS BOOMING ON THIS DAY. WE HAVE PEOPLE WHO STAY ALL DAY JUST SO THEY WON'T MISS ANYTHING. THIS IS ONE OF BENTON'S BIGGEST ATTRACTIONS. THIS HAS BEEN SUCH A GOOD SHOW THAT WE WERE BLESSED LAST YEAR AND IT WAS ON THE FRONT PAGE OF THE SIKESTON STANDARD IN WHICH WE FELT VERY BLESSED THAT SOMEONE NOTICED. A LOT OF HARD WORK HAS WENT INTO THIS SHOW BEING FROM THE PERSON WHO SETS IT ALL UP OR THE VENDORS THAT COME EVERY YEAR NO MATTER IF THEY SELL ANYTHING OR NOT . THEY SAY IT IS FOR A GOOD CAUSE AND THEY ALWAYS HAVE SUCH A GOOD TIME. I COULD FILL UP ANOTHER HALL WITH ALL THE CRAFTERS THAT WON'T TO BE IN THIS SHOW. SO WE MUST BE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT. I WISH I COULD LET THEM ALL IN BUT YOU ONLY HAVE SO MUCH ROOM. I HOPE WHOEVER GETS THIS COMES TO THE SHOW AND JUDGES FOR THERISELVES WHAT A GREAT EVENT THIS IS FOR SUCH A SMALL TOWN.
