Slox creator among vendors at this weekend's Maker Fair in Garden City

Slox creator among vendors at this weekend's Maker Fair in Garden City


"They are a fun, functional accessory," Skistad said. "They work well for exercising and for athletes. I wear them mostly as a sassy accessory, to dress an outfit up or down."

The Maker Fair began last year when Vernon Center native Sara Krosch organized a craft fair during a return trip from her current home in the Philippines. She was hoping to find a handful of other vendors to join her while she sold her homemade Just Coco virgin coconut oil products. So many people signed up, however, that organizers had to expand the event to accommodate all the interest.

This year, the event expanded even farther, relocating from the fire hall in Vernon Center to the fairgrounds. This year's event will also include make-and-take crafts for kids as well as good and beverage vendors.
