Vendors and small businesses from multiple counties spent part of their Saturday in Weston.
The Small Business Market & Craft Show in the St. Patrick School gymnasium is an annual tradition in Lewis County.
Vendors, and small business men and women from surrounding counties come to sell their goods on the most important day for small businesses across the country.
“Yeah it’s been very successful. This is a great event. It’s been a great turnout — the community has supported it. It’s been wonderfully organized. We’ve had a great time here today, a lot of people coming by the table,” said Lloyd Bone, husband of Susan Bone who is in charge of the business Susan’s Scents.
Shoppers had many choices of jewelry, Christmas decorations to make their house look nice during the holidays, and scents to have their house smelling good for friends and family.
“Waxes have been selling well. We’ve sold several holiday warmers. We’ve sold buddy clips, people are looking for stocking stuffers. A lot of holiday items,” said Lloyd Bone.
This was the first time for the Bones being at the St. Patrick School market, but they enjoyed a good day of business.
Another vendor with positive feedback was Margie Shook, and her jewelry business that’s just a few months old.
“Well I just started Paparazzi and I thought I’d give it a try up here in a larger area, because Glenville is kind of small. So, just getting started. Seeing what I can do with it,” said Margie Stone, who just started her business two months ago.
Both Susan’s Scents, and Shook with her Paparazzi Jewelry, along with many of the other small businesses, hope they’re invited back next year.
