About 250 vendors will be selling one-of-a-kind items and gift ideas at the Saline Craft Show Nov. 10 at Saline Middle School. The 26th Annual Saline Craft Show takes place from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Over the next two weeks, we're counting down to the show with  reasons why should consider attending.

Reason #9 to Attend the Saline Craft Show

Why spend all that time and energy processing chemicals to manufacture new goods when you can make one-of-a-kind pieces out of things in nature or old things to create new and unique crafts. Converting these ordinary objects into art and transforming trash into something far more useful is a hallmark of some of the crafters at the Saline Craft Show. For example, the Adams/Tietz family, from Wisconsin, uses stones from their farm fields to create ducks, geese, turtles, dragonflies, butterflies and more.
