We are just a typical busy all American family, my nick name has grown to become super women by many. lol ! ;) I am a realtor/broker in ID & WA, health & wellness coach & business mentor, a mommy and wife, enjoy being on the worship team at our church, love the outdoors as well as keeping up with our active lil family that is always on the go, and enjoy event planning immensely to name a few of my interests and activities. :) I have always wanted to do a fun family event in our area that didn't cost an arm and a leg for vendors to be a part of as well as the public to come to. I have small businesses myself and know how hard it is to fork out the large amount of money all the typical events at the fair grounds charge for these large events. But what do you do as a small business to get out there otherwise? So I thought to myself I am going to start an event at the fair grounds that is affordable for these lil crafters, small businesses etc so that they can actually get there name out there and make money doing so. We all know we aren't there for the fun of it just to make our large vendor fee amount back, kinda nice to make a lil in pocket isn't it.? So I came to the conclusion I was going to do just that no matter how much it cost me to put it on, so I started doing my research on what it took, crazy how much goes into putting something like this on and what permits and licenses etc you need but it is SO worth it in the end seeing all the vendors happy and all the public enjoying themselves and families being able to go to an event like this without having to take out a loan for the door fees. haha! We only charge $4.00 or $3.00 with a canned food (goes to local food banks) or blanket (goes to ROC Shelter) donation at our door and kids 5 and under are free, that is to help cover the expenses of putting the event on that I am not getting covered trying to keep my cost low for my vendors. Our second year was a good success and the third year was fabulous, I am really looking forward to the years to come! Thank you everyone for your support as we have built this show and look forward to continuing to help out our small and large businesses alike as well as give something for young and old to get out of the house and have a great time during the holidays!
