Duane Barnard of Iron Mountain and his wife, Pat will take part in the 11th annual fall Holiday Gift and Craft Show held at the American Legion in Iron Mountain on Saturday. Duane has a wide variety of hand-made and customized ice fishing, fly, spinning and casting rods and fishing lures, and Pat has machine-quilted pot-holders. The couple operated the Aurora Sports Shop beginning in the 1970s for about 15 years. That is where Barnard sharpened his skills to become a craftsman of fishing equipment.
The event will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is $1, which entitles each person to a chance at a drawing for $50.
A wide selection of gift and unique antique will be available from participating vendors. Some items include Depression, Victorian, cut and pressed glass, table top radio, serving trays, cast iron fry pan and Dutch oven, lots of collectibles, Rada Knives and more.
A drawing of a Green Bay Packers football autographed by the Packers will be held.
