Cosmo Se­niors’ trade and craft show finds young en­trepreneurs

Moose Jaw Express.com - - News -

David Priebe was quite happy with his fam­ily’s ta­ble at the an­nual Cosmo Se­niors’ Cen­tre trade and craft show. “I brought five bird­houses and three bird feed­ers,” he said. “I’ve only got two left.”

His grand­fa­ther taught the 11-year-old to make the bird­houses and bird feed­ers. “He still helps me.”

Asked what he will do with his prof­its, David replied quickly: “I think I’ll save it. I’ve been spend­ing too much lately.”

He was part of a fam­ily ta­ble. His sis­ter Bethany sold her crafts — lip balm and can­dles made from half an acorn. The can­dles floated on wa­ter, mak­ing them safer to use.

She had crafts at the show last year. Their younger sis­ter Cas­san­dra also helped. Mom su­per­vised.

The show had a va­ri­ety of crafts, food, knit­ted and sewed crafts and per­sonal care items.

The pie, es­pe­cially the lemon meringue, at the con­ces­sion was pop­u­lar.
