The parking area around Djday’s Stained Glass at South Eagle Valley Road will be buzzing on Saturday as more than 30 crafters and artisans set up handmade items for an organized fall craft show, open to the public from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This Saturday, the public is invited for free admission to the Fall Outdoor Hand-crafted Craft Show at Djday’s Stained Glass parking lot, 14116 South Eagle Valley Rd., Tyrone.

With most fall outdoor events and fairs canceled this year due to COVID-19 regulations and uncertainties, the vendor slots for the D-day’s event filled up quickly.

Rain or shine, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., tables will be open, offering a variety of crafts and gifts or personal use items.

“With COVID canceling all of the big shows, we gathered together as makers to have our own event for everyone to enjoy,” said Dion Dillon, co-owner of Djday’s Stained Glass. “The entire event will feature handmade crafts. Stop in to support your local small business artisans.”

Thirty-one spots were filled by hand crafters and makers, showcasing items including:

  • Stained glass and fused glass
  • Mesh wreaths
  • 3-D wooden signs and home decor
  • Coconut milk soaps, lotions, scrubs
  • Fabric items — fleece, towels, bowl coozies, table runners, etc.
  • Wreaths and glass plaques
  • Oil paintings, acrylic paintings, wooden decor carvings, comic book art
  • CBD oils, topicals, natural body care products
  • Hand-lettered wooden signs
  • Birdhouses and windchimes
  • Woodworking and glass etchings
  • Swarvorski jewlery
  • Crystal trees, Zen gardens and wands
  • Ornamental concrete items and military stones
  • Fine art photography and abstract expressionism paintings
  • Pressed flower cards and upcycled jewelry
  • Hand-thrown and hand-built pottery, 3-D printed items
  • Acrylic paint pours and children’s book
  • Handmade rustic decor
  • Handmade greeting cards and journals

“There are a few other activities that are also going on that day all along the same road,” Dillon pointed out. The Fowler Grove Autumn Craft, Arts and Vendor Show will be held at 11246 South Eagle Valley Rd., Port Matilda from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. with entertainment by the Werner Family Band from Mount Joy on stage at 2 p.m.

Food trucks will also be available in the Reclamere parking lot at 905 Pennsylvania Ave., Tyrone from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“I am happy that during this trying time for everyone, that we have the support of the community to put this event together to give them something to do for a day, safely, and to also help support all of our local artisans,” said Dillon.

CDC and Department of Health guidelines will be followed at the event to help keep everyone safe.
