HURLEY - People explored a variety of items during a craft fair Saturday at the Iron County Memorial Building in Hurley.

According to event organizer Kathy Koski, all of the proceeds from the fair benefitted the Iron County Memorial Building Restoration Committee.

Seventeen vendors participated in the fair, including homemade bakery, wooden toys, rugs made by the Iron County Historical Society and a raffle for a quilt from the Northern Lights Quilters Guild.

"We have 17 vendors, but we have room for 20," Koski said. "Our plan is to have this event again in the fall."

Koski said the event was successful, because of the community.

"It has been very nice," Koski said. "The weather helped, but it was great to see the community come and support the memorial building restoration project."
