Over 250 exhibitors from more than 30 states crowded the South Carolina State Fairgrounds Friday through Sunday for the 40th annual Craftsmen's Christmas Classic.

Vendors showcased everything from baseball bats and tree ornaments to food and trinkets.

"We have something for you whether you're two years-old or 82 years-old. This is definitely a family-friendly event," said Carly Gilmore, the event marketing director.

Artist Jay Li sells personalized portraits.

"It's a very good Christmas and gift idea because you can't go wrong. It's very personal," said Li.

For some of those that attended, their holiday shopping is finished. For others, it was a fun way to kick off the holiday season.
