ABILENE, Texas -

Arts and crafts lovers got their fill Saturday at the Abilene Civic Center.

The third "Craftapolooza and Fabulous Junk Market" debuted everything from jewelry to clothes to hand-made furniture. 

People came in searching for unique odds and ends at the one day shopping extravaganza. The displays were set up with re-purposed items that had plenty of bling and Texas flair. 

The event also brought out a lot of new exhibitors who showcased their work.

"I do all kinds of arts and crafts," Tracy Allen, owner of Crazy and Eclectic Boutique, said. "Anything from painting to jewelry-making displays, just all kinds of stuff."

"We hand make all of our jewelry and we also hand make all of our benches and it's just a hobby and we love it," Chic and Unique owner Rebecca Stephens said.

The event wrapped up Saturday afternoon. It's scheduled to return to Abilene in December.
