The show continues today.
Smith's husband, Sam Smith, died last October. Because he was the one who cut the leather, his wife ceased making bags.
"I wasn't getting along so good, so my doctor recommended I do something," Smith said.
Smith got out her bag patterns, started cutting the leather herself and resumed making bags.
"It gives me something to do," she said.
Smith sold three bags in less than half an hour on Saturday, telling each customer to call her at home to report any problems with a bag. She attached to the handle of each bag a card with her phone number on it.
In time for the upcoming hunting seasons, James and Tracy Remsburg of Frederick, Md., were selling nature prints, as well as copies of their hunting-related books, including "J.R.'s Camouflage Cookin'."
The cookbook consists of original family recipes for wild game, including deer, turkey, elk, pheasant, squirrel and other meats.
Venison is better than hamburger, the couple said.
"It's leaner. It's better for you," James Remsburg said.
Elsewhere in the ARCC, Butch Upole, 63, of Oakland, Md., had framed natural works of art on display.
His work consists of items - twigs, bark, cattails, milkweed, maple seed pods, weeds, wasp nests and others - layered to form a natural scene.
Upole started making his creations in February.
"Strictly boredom," he said.
Upole selects his materials from his 80 acres, but his mind is rambling as he gathers the items.
"I put the frame out and then put it together," Upole said, adding that he was unable to make a work that someone had requested. "I just have to be completely open when I sit down."
