Prattville – The 27th annual Spinners Arts & Crafts Show began today. Many vendors were there cooking up their specialties, all the way from cotton candy to alligator-on-a-stick. Booths were set up to sell jewelry, dream catchers, quilts, purses, homemade goods, paintings, furniture, etc.

A local first-time author from Marbury, Nancy Bone Goff, was there promoting her book, “The Adventures of Slump Thacker.” When asked about the book, Nancy said, “It’s basically a fun book about great-grandpa Spivey and his best friend, Slump Thacker. There is also a three-legged hunting dog and a fifteen-foot alligator.” Nancy was autographing her books and selling them at a special festival price of five dollars.

Antique Plymouths, Chevys and Fords were among the vehicles exhibited at the show. A slide and a train ride around the park kept the children happy. The Spinners of Prattville were selling tickets for a quilt raffle. A spokesperson for the group, Mrs. Jean Moorer, remarked that the largest crowd came to the park in the morning hours until noon. “I believe we have sold 400 tickets so far.”

The Arts & Crafts Show continues on Sunday from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. For further information, call 334-358-9209.
