Monarch will host its Third Annual Community Craft Show from 9 a.m.
until 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27 at its Stanly Industrial Services, 730

Vendors from across the region will display unique handmade crafts,
beautiful wreaths, candles, Thirty-One items, purses, jewelry,
decorative baskets and much, much more – just in time for the holidays.
Candy apples, funnel cakes and hotdogs will also be sold. Organizers are
expecting a number of new vendors this year.
