The HHS wrestling team is holding its annual craft fair Saturday (Dec. 7) in the gym lobby.

The fair runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and raises money for the team's uniforms and travel expenses.

More than 80 vendors will have booths set up with festive items and different crafts for sale.

One booth, Suga Mama’s Sweet Shoppe, will feature an assortment of Christmas sugar cookies.

Coach Ralph Gabriel said the inspiration behind the craft fair is his wife, who likes to make crafts.

“I didn’t want to sell magazines or canned food, but I knew we needed money. So I proposed a craft fair," he explained.

The vendors pay the team to get a space to sell their items. Last year, he said, the event raised more than $10,000.

Because of the fair's success, other area schools such as Station Camp and White House have started their own craft fairs, the coach said.
