Crafts fair draws cruisin' traffic

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - As people flock to South Mississippi for Cruisin' the Coast, other hobbies are celebrated in the midst of classic cars galore.

Craftsmen among craftsmen surrounded Chick-Fil-A on Highway 49 for the Annual Crafts Fair.

The event had tents wrapped around the corner with people displaying their own hobbies and trying to entice buyers.

Brian Farricy sells wreaths with his wife, Sherrie. He said the time and place of the fair is all a part of the strategy.

"Anywhere on the coast, you've got a lot of traffic [especially] at this intersection. It's been very, very busy," said Farricy.

Farricy said they sold almost 10 wreaths and nearly 100 people stopped by their tent.

"Overall, it's been a success," said Farricy.
