Santa, poppies accompany craft show at Onslow school in Quyon

The annual Onslow School Christmas Craft Show brought kids and families to school on Saturday, but it turned out to be much more enticing when Santa visited.

New entrepreneurs made their debut at the elementary school craft show, including From Our Garden’s Julie Bertrand and Alexandre Letang. Bertrand’s salsa was so popular over the summer, she decided to package it and make more to sell at craft shows.

The Onslow Elementary School was overrun with crafts, fresh food, vendors and kids on Saturday, with a visit from Santa Claus making an excellent reason for children to hang out in a classroom on the weekend.
All of this was going on as the ninth annual Onslow School Christmas Craft Show took over, complete with over 30 vendors, Santa photos and a Remembrance Day ceremony.
With a wide variety of merchants, from knitting to preserves and even local authors, there was plenty to draw in the crowds, especially with money raised by the school’s parent committee benefitting the purchase of a new playground for the facility.
