Young entrepreneurs sell handmade products at the Children’s Business Fair

Young entrepreneurs from across the Central Coast had the opportunity to showcase and sell the products they created at the second annual Avila Beach Kids Business Fair on Saturday, October 16th.

As part of the fair, children create a project or service, develop a brand, build a marketing strategy and then sell their product.

This year’s fair featured over 30 stands selling items such as homemade jewelry, dog and cat toys, soaps, and children’s books.

One entrepreneur, Tristen Callahan, sold handmade soaps and candles decorated with flowers he picked from his garden.

“For the candles, what’s inside is from the garden, and we put the soap we got from the garden,” he said.

Two other vendors, Jasper and Joey George, sold eggs collected from chickens they raised and even brought some of their own chickens.
“We put them in an incubator and grow them,” Joey said.

The brothers said raising chickens and selling their eggs was a lot of fun.
