50 Years of See & Sell

Organizers are ready for one of the biggest, and most continuous events of its kind in Salina and the Midwest. Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland is inviting the public to kick off the holiday season by shopping at the 50th annual See & Sell Holiday Market and supporting Kansas Girl Scouts at the same time.

This popular arts and crafts show, which attracts more than 3,000 shoppers each year, will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19 at the Bicentennial Center, 800 The Midway in Salina. Miss Kansas Kendall Schoenekase will be making a special appearance from 10 a.m. to noon, and the first 100 shoppers through the door will get a See & Sell goody bag containing coupons and special offers for area businesses.

Founded by the YWCA of Salina and now continued by Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland, See & Sell started in 1966 with a small group of crafters. The event has grown to include more than 200 fine arts, crafts, homemade food and commercial vendors who fill up the arena in the Bicentennial Center along with the adjacent Heritage Hall.

Tickets for the 50th annual See & Sell Holiday Market are $5 at the door, and children ages 12 and under get in free. Proceeds from the gate and booth sales support Girl Scouts in 80 Kansas counties. For more information, go to seeandsellshow.com or call 1-888-686-MINT (6468).
