Tucked away in a residential neighborhood on Gerst Road, the Perry Hall Community Hall has been bustling with shoppers since Friday.
The annual Christmas in Perry Hall Craft Show will continue every day (except Thanksgiving) until Nov. 27. There are 60 local vendors participating, carrying everything from etched glass to homemade blankets to Ravens gear.
"Our prices are better than the mall, our items are unique and the people are friendlier," said fair manager Sheila Crocken.
Crocken said she sent out about 5,000 mailers to community members to advertise this year's fair and the response has already been strong.
"We had more than 75 cars outside on our opening day," she said.
The Perry Hall Community Hall is located on Gerst Road, about a third of a mile up from East Joppa Road, past New Gerst Lane.
The fair's hours are noon-5 p.m. on Sundays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesdays-Fridays and 10 a.m.-5 p.m on Saturdays and Mondays.
