The fellowship hall was filled with vendors. There were about 20 vendors total including Judy Szulis, who was selling Tupperware. She has been selling Tupperware for 15 years and was happy to show off new colors and sustainable products.

“It’s not your grandmother’s Tupperware,” Szulis said.

Annette Mrzywka of Holley was among the vendors. She and her mother Sue Lear and daughter Natalie Mrzywka team in “Stitched After Hours.” They make reading pillows, dog bandanas, stockings, bibs and other embroidered items.

Their most popular item on Saturday was a Buffalo Bills-themed dog bandana.
