Hoping to start an annual tradition in Dunn County, a new holiday craft show is making its way to the High Plains Cultural Center in an effort to help southwestern North Dakotans shop for the holiday season.

The Holidaze Vendor and Craft Show will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 11, in Killdeer, and features 35 vendors who have signed up to display and sell products ranging from soaps, candles and crafts to home décor.

The event was planned by Kacie Moline, who said she hopes there will be a sufficient turnout to make this an annual tradition in Dunn County. Moline has a background in event planning and decided it would be fun to try something on her own that could benefit her community.

“I decided to do a Christmas show, kind of for the last-minute shopper,” Moline said, adding that there will be plenty of food on sale close by for those who show up hungry, as well as a bar.

Moline owns and operates an online boutique called Slightly Pure , which she established in 2020 during the coronavirus pandemic. She went into business with a mission to provide products to a segment of the market that she said is underserved. She also has a private Facebook group for her customers who want to talk fashion and makeup.


“There was nothing really here that was my type of style, so I decided to start selling online,” Moline said. “I carry from size small to 3X, so I like to cover plus-size women as well because you can never really find a certain shirt in all the sizes. I’m very size inclusive with my brands.”

Santa Claus will be visiting with children from 1 to 4 p.m. Guests are free to take their own photos, or Monica Sanchez Photography will be present to offer professional shots for $10 each.

When she's not running her own boutique, Moline stays busy in Dunn Center, where she lives with her boyfriend James and their dog Moke. She also works full-time at Big George’s Liquor Store in Killdeer, where she is the manager.

For additional information about the craft show, call Moline at 701-260-3855. The High Plains Cultural Center is located at 470 Fifth Ave. SW. in Killdeer.
