Perry explains the history of the craft center, initially being run by 4-H and the being adopted and run by the community. Perry discusses the wide array of artisans and crafts that are sold at the craft center. He explains why all of the crafts sold at lower prices because they are priced with the community in mind and the artisans want community members to use their crafts.
