Cosmo Seniors’ trade and craft show finds young entrepreneurs
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.
