Jane Lew Fireman's Arts and Crafts Festival Brings 200 Craft Vendors Into Town

Posted: Updated:

More than 200 craft vendors filled streets of Jane Lew on Saturday.

The annual Jane Lew Fireman's Arts and Crafts Festival brought hundreds to the small town.

The craft vendors offered everything you can imagine including jewelry, wood work, and paintings, and there was an abundance of food to fuel all that craft shopping.

The festival has been a tradition in Jane Lew for 30 years.

Also a tradition for 30 years is the Jane Lew Fire Department's "fill the boot" fundraiser.

With all the traffic coming into town firefighters held out boots that people could put money in.

The money raised goes to making improvements for the fire department.

"The money from the boot goes to the general fund to keep up the truck maintenance, buying new gear. It's mainly to buy gear, we have to buy two or three sets a year, and it runs $2,000 or $3,000 a set. Some people from out of state throw in a donation just for a set of gear," said Dave Lamb of the Jane Lew Volunteer Fire Department.

Lamb said people were throwing in anything from change to $50.

There was also a "fill the boot" fundraiser held in Clarksburg on Saturday.
