Things got a little bit crafty at the Abilene Civic Center Saturday.
Vendors from all over Texas brought their creativity and their goods to the Craft-A-Plooza.
But it's more than just a whacky name for a vendor's market, many of these vendors are bringing meaning to the booths.
"These products are all hand-made in the Philippines and most of them are made out of recycled paper beads." Jennie Cariaga, with 'Trash to Treasures', said.
Cariaga and her daughter-in-law spent the day talking with customers about how their jewelry will be affecting families across the world.
Bags, bracelets and necklaces are just a few of the items made by the recycled materials.
And most of the funds raised by Saturday's sales will go to fund the programs that the Cariaga's support in The Philippines.
Just across the way a vintage-chic style booth was set up by Ashley Crim.
This McKinney teacher came to Abilene for the day to be a part of Craft-A-Plooza and her hand-made accessories are one of a kind.
They have been ultimately refurbished while still maintaining all the old school luster that customers love.
"It's kind of neat to incorporate the community with family members- they can send me parts in a shoe box of their grandmother's old things and I can create something memorable for them." Crim said.
The articles are anything but boring.
Bracelets and broaches among many other accessories that have been masterly restored to look brand new, keeping all the class but adding a bit of a sassy twist.
And many moms stopped by the Dickison Design booth for a little bit baby shopping.
The co-owners of Dickison Design are a team of two stay-at-home moms that are bringing their business back to the nest.
Every item sold is hand sewn, stitched and designed and sold online.
"We sew them all by hand and we're a small business so we do it kind of mom to mom." Brianna Dickison said.
