Art & Treasure Weekend was great in Happy Camp! The showers of early morning didn’t last long and the sun came out for a perfect day for the town wide open market with Yard Sales, Garage Sales, Rummage Sales and Flea Markets and even the Grand Openiing of Marble Mountain Gift Co. on Davis Road.
Visitors came to Happy “Camp from Redding, Yreka, Scott Valley, and from Oregon also,Central Point, Ashland, Medford, Grants pass, Cave Junction, and the coast! Nearly all exclaimed about the beautiful drive on Highway 96 they had enjoyed. Some were here for the first time and some were returning to places that they had fond memories from years past.
The Happy Camp Chamber of Commerce booth at Bigfoot Corner on Hwy 97 and Davis Road was especially busy handing out maps of the places to find the best sales, crafts and artwork. The Siskiyou-Klamath Art Gallery is at that corner and allowed visitors a good view of work by Alan Crockett and other talented artists. Cathleen Searle, the president of the Happy Camp Chamber of Commerce said that they had spread the word “all over the State of Jefferson” and were pleased with the response. Cathleen had made a large three sides display celebrating the activities the Chamber is involved with during this 25th anniversary, members, and photos of past presidents.
The response was wonderful and they had so much fun visiting with all the friendly & enthusiastic visitors that the Happy Camp Chamber is tentatively scheduling a bigger and better Town Wide Ar & Treasure Sale for June 8–10 next year with more sales, more food, more arts & crafts and more fun for everyone!
