TARRYTOWN, N.Y. -- Ask anyone perusing the nearly 300 vendor tables at the Crafts at Lyndhurst event in Tarrytown and they will use the same word to describe the custom arts, crafts and jewelry on display -- unique.

Tarrytown resident Sarah Pearce left the three-day event at Lyndhurst Saturday with bags full of "unique" items, including handmade pottery by a Kansas couple Jenny and Scott Martin. The festival continues Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

"It's just very creative, the different kinds of textures and compositions," Pearce said. "There are so many beautiful things here."

Pearce said she hadn't attended the well-known outdoor craft festival in 10 years. Her friend Gina Conte, who invited her, said she got some early Christmas shopping done.

Then there's Brian Friedman, who has attended every year since the event's inception 30 years ago. Back then, he lived across the street, and now lives a short drive down the road. This year, he brought his daughter, Jordan, 4, who was busy casting spells with her new blue and grey wand, powered by elastic, air and magic.

Similarly, Sleepy Hollow resident Victoria Jenkins brought her daughter, who got her face painted. Their family goes to the festival at least once a year, Jenkins' mother, Hillary, said.

"They have nice, interesting, different kinds of art work," said Ilene Stockel of White Plains, who brought her friend from out of town. "It's something you're not going to see in stores and it's a nice upscale kind of art show."

Vendors, many from out of state, we're happy to return the love to customers that they say make the drive or flight worth it.

"The people, they understand art, they like art and I do well here," said Laurie Rosen, who sells handmade pottery and is based out of Long Island.

Chappaqua residents Andrea and Steve Schawartz had their eye on ceramic vases and fused glass sold by a California women who flew in just for the event.

Bob Juul called the colorful collection of crafts "delicious."

"We've been shopping mostly for my wife's clothing and jewelry," he said. "I love to shop. It's all unique."

Juul also said he liked the way the festival organized the food along the vendor tents.

"i like the rearrangement of the front with the food area swooping up to the entrance and it's made the area out there a little larger," he said. "It's much nicer."

Admission is $12.
