The entry hall and North Cafetorium at David Douglas High School (DDHS) was lined with booths on April 15, as the DDHS Parent Teacher Student Association’s (PTSA) Spring Craft Fair was underway.

A wide variety of craft items — featuring all sorts of creative arts and crafts – were for sale from local vendors.

Welcoming visitors is DDHS PTSA Vice President Kim Satterthwaite.

“We have 38 vendors here, today, who are offering all kinds of creative products and foods at our second annual Craft Fair,” DDHS PTSA Vice President Kim Satterthwaite told East Portland News.

“Our Board came up with the idea of giving crafters an opportunity to show and sell their creations – and then, inviting the community into our school to patronize them,” Satterthwaite continued.

Hot sauce brewed by The Royal Kingdom Family was offered by Eliah Arigbon and Lenora Hall. You can get it on online at their Love and Live Life shop.

Shoppers browsed, as some ten volunteers helped customers get their larger purchases out to their cars.

“We do this to raise money for the Senior All-night Party, for student enrichment activities, and for teacher and staff appreciation events put on throughout the year,” explained Satterthwaite.

The next DDHS PTSA fundraiser is their annual Rummage Sale, to be held on May 13 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. You’ll find it in the David Douglas High South Building Cafeteria, at 1500 SE 130th Avenue, 97233.
