Happy Camper for April 29, 2015

Shantelle Alayvilla, 6, and her sister Kristel, 9, were fully occupied making bracelets that were being picked up by customers almost as soon as they were created on Saturday.

Shantelle and Kristel are nieces of Debbie Yanagihara, the organizer of the craft fair, which took place at the Kauai Veterans Center on Kapule Highway in Lihue.

Debbie said her daughter, now the owner of handmade bikini, got her start making bracelets from when she was in the fourth grade and her nieces are following the example.

Corey Cruzada and Darin Kurasaki had their mobile stuffed animals setup on hand, Corey saying it was the first time they were out in public.

They did have examples of their patriotic animals displayed during the recent Go For Broke exhibit, but this is the first time they were selling.

Saebrie Pegeder was so impressed, she got one not only for herself, but one for her sibling as well.

Debbie said her next craft fair comes in time for Mother’s Day. It’ll be held at the Church of the Pacific in Princeville from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 9.
