Many people are running around trying to find the perfect gift for their friends and family.

This weekend in Harlan County, you have a chance to do that, and support the local economy.

The Festival of the Mountain Masters is underway in Harlan and many people say there's nothing like a gift made right here at home.

Whether its woodwork or a woven masterpiece chances are you'll find it here.

On a day dominated by sales from national retail chains, many people took time to check out some local items.

Karen Burgess turned her talent into Karen's Kreations, which gives her a supplemental income.

“I've painted things for people as presents and once I started doing that people said why don't you start selling those?” Burgess said.

People are checking names off their shopping lists.

The Festival of the Mountain Masters is at the Village Center Mall in Harlan.

It runs Saturday from ten until six.

    This used to be a great festival. It was one of the worst I have ever been to! I have been to it since I was little. Their were so many people set up last year and lots of customers. You do a terrible job of advertising. Whoever puts this thing together please tell me why you had a band playing rock music at a Christnas festival????? And you wonder why noone was there?????
