Home-based fair in time for the holidays

 

Cranbrook United Church is hosting their first annual Home-Based Business Fair on Saturday, October 15, from 12 noon to 4 p.m. at #2, 12 Avenue South.

There is a sizable home-based group of entrepreneurs in our small city and in today’s tight economic times with the rising costs of reliable day care a number of our community’s younger moms are contributing to their families income by working from home.

It was while hosting a number of “Kid Swap” events and talking to these young women it was determined that their options for exposure are somewhat limited and more expensive than their budgets will allow.

This time of year was chosen to give ample time for the display of their products and take orders if you are looking for that special gift for Christmas.

There are 28 tables booked with a wide range of products. Sentsy, Feather for Hair, Body and Beads are only a few if the product lines on display. Items for your home include Tupperware, kitchen mitts, epicure and vinyl wall art, baby blanks, Usborne books, photography and doll clothes.

Get together a group of your friends, come down, have a coffee and see for yourself the enterprising ways these women contribute to our community’s economic diversity.
