Crain, 37, around the several years has attended this expo as an eager supporter of the weird (shopping for a fox head and sheep mind final yr). But Saturday he was selling his individual model of the scary crafty.

Crain joined 69 other generally California distributors who returned to marketing after currently being shut out in the course of a great deal of 2020 simply because of the pandemic. About 2,000 persons paid out $10 to browse the weird Saturday.
