GETTING READY — Dorothy Thompson of Buchanan, owner of Dorothy Nell Creative Crafts, was hard at work Thursday afternoon displaying her hand-made wreaths and home decor at the 47th Reelfoot Lake Arts and Crafts Festival. Ms. Thompson is no newcomer to the three-day event, estimating that she has been a vendor for more than 20 years. The festival is at full capacity this year, with 295 exhibitors ready to peddle a variety of crafts, art, clothing, food and more. The annual festival usually draws around 40,000 visitors each fall. While most vendors will be in outdoor spaces, others will be located in the Reelfoot Lake State Park Visitors Center building and in the National Guard armory from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday and Saturday and from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday.
