Rexford Auxiliary's Holiday Craft & Vendor Fair
Participating for the 1st time, Karen's Lens Photography set up her table at this annual fall event at the Rexford Fire House. An amazing event, as many vendors filled the rooms showcasing their talent with their homemade items. I had a fabulous day and met some amazing ladies. The R.A. really know how to treat the vendors with class!
I will search around for upcoming events for 2017.
