PRANCE Southampton Craft Show celebrates 49th anniversary

Visitors crowded into the Coliseum …

… and took advantage of perfect weather to shop outside

PRANCE Operations Manager Anne Veyvara-Divinski was all smiles

Southampton Craft Sale held in support of PRANCE (Pegasus Riding Association Nurturing Challenged Equestrians) celebrated its 49th anniversary on Thursday, July 5th.

The annual event has continued to grow each year with more than 140 vendors offering items for every age from garden ornaments to plants, clothes to crystal and jewelry to jams.  For some it was a chance to stock up on gifts and even do some early Christmas shopping.

The show is a major fundraiser for PRANCE and, although final attendance numbers are not yet in, but by all accounts the event was once again a success.
