A captivating craft fair

Local artisans filled the Safeway parking lot in Conifer on Saturday for the first craft fair of the summer hosted by A Borgata.

“These artists get to connect with customers face to face,” said Pennie Gaudi, owner of A Borgata, a store that features the work of local artists and crafters.

More than 15 vendors showcased their wares Saturday afternoon and answered questions from browsing customers. Meanwhile, Murphy’s Crossing soothed the crowd with its mix of rock, blues and country.
