There’s nothing better than shopping locally, and for residents of Muenster, it didn’t get any more local than their own Community Hall on Saturday for the annual fall trade show. The event had been a pre-Covid staple, and Saturday proved the regions appetite for the wonderful home prepared fare and all of the business options. 

On hand were home crafters with fine woodwork and signs, the knitting and crocheting crew, including Humboldt’s Guardian Angels, and all manners of jewelry and adornments. Another popular stop was the branded coffee mug station where purchasers can sip their morning caffeine from what appears to be a can of Castrol or WD-40.

There were scents a plenty from bath bombs to homemade wax burner cubes. Also, as a precursor to Sunday’s snowfall, everyone could pick up their bunny toques and handcrafted mitts.

Organizer Helen Engele said the early morning crowd was solid with traffic continuing to flow throughout the day. The event served as a fundraiser for the Community Hall which has recently undergone extensive renovations.
