Whether you’re looking for a day out with friends or need to find the perfect gift for your sweetheart, the Love is in the Air expo will feature a variety of items from local artisans.

From 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1, the expo will be held at Faith Fellowship Church in Jefferson.

More than 40 vendors are on board to participate in the event. Admission is free.

The local craft vendors will be bringing natural spa products, jewelry, make up, knitted items, quilts, kitchen products, children’s toys and more.

A portion of the proceeds will be used to provide scholarships to Ashe County children who attend the Train Up a Child after school program.

“With the hard economic times that we as a community are facing, we look forward to being able to provide these very important scholarships,” said Jennifer Byland, coordinator of the expo. “While making a difference in the community, our goal is to provide events that will continue to bring our area artisans together and provide ways for residents to shop local.”

In addition to the artisans, Cari Carson Photography will also be available throughout the show to take professional Valentine photos.

“Packages are only $20 and will be here in time for Valentine’s Day,” Carson said.

Individuals who would like to have photos made can call Carson for an appointment, but walk-ins are welcome as well. To make an appointment, call (336) 977-3019 or message Carson on Facebook.

Some vendors include Decadent By Design, Mary Kay, Tupperware, airbrush tattoos, Paparazzi Jewelry, Dove Chocolate Discoveries, Origami Owl, Pampered Chef, Thirty-One, Plexus, Scentsy and more.
