HUNTINGTON BEACH...Early Saturday morning, August 10th.

This event found two long rows of vendors lining one of the mobilehome park's streets in front of the park's clubhouse and several more vendors setup their items inside the clubhouse.

"We have 56 vendors selling this day," said Caiazzo. "Most of the vendor's items are unique and one-of-a-kind pieces."

Vendors spent the early morning setting up their tables with items and some with rack to hold clothing and sales wares.

 

 

Residents of the park came out early to see what beautiful offerings were to be found.

By 9:00 a.m. drivers began pulling in from Garfield and just as quickly filled the parking spaces on the park's streets.

One vendor by the clubhouse's entrance was Jessica Coppolino and her original handmade jewelry. Buyers could have an original bracelet of colorful beads made just for her by Coppolino.

Along the street were tables filled with hand sewn and crocheted crafts, original artworks, decoupage, handmade scented soaps and succulents.

"We have managed to replace all the old Masonite tables at our clubhouse with new lightweight 6’ folding tables, and recently bought 2 new pop up tents for the patio area from the sale of spaces. We also chose to make a $200 donation to Robyne’s Nest for needy teens so they have proper footwear for back to school," said Caiazzo.
