The best way for a small business to prosper and grow is to have exposure. The Linden Fall Fair and Trade Show is a perfect opportunity for vendors of all types to offer their unique product to the community.
At last Saturday's show, over 80 tables filled Dr. Elliot School Gym, overflowed into the hallway, and down into the Linden Cultural Center, anxious to attract the attention of the patrons.
Samples of coffee, enriched with the 100% certified organic herb, Ganoderma Lucidum, was being passed around. Fresh milled flour bread was popular, and had one warning, "Highly Addictive."
A number of booths were selling jewelry of all types, the majority of which was homemade. A local gentleman made lawn ornaments from scrap metal, old shovels, and broken tractor parts. The Linden Wellness Center was providing free 20 minute massages and foot care.
Homespun-alpaca-wool mitts and socks, made from the wool of 60 local alpacas, were being sold, and the business owner, herself, was giving demonstrations of wool spinning.
The largest financial services company in North America, Primerica, was present. Based out of Atlanta, with offices around the continent, and one in Calgary. It is their goal to open an office in the Linden-Three Hills area.
Anything practical and/or artistic was available at the Trade Show. Homemade clothing, baking, candles and so much more, all in one location.
The Trade Show is made possible by sponsorship of the Linden Ag Society. Although this is the biggest show they put on, the Ag Society also donates to clubs, organizes Linden Sports Day, and was a sponsor of the pathway project in Linden.
For those wanting more information about the society, or to become a member, they are asked to attend their upcoming meeting on November 16th, 7:00 PM at the Care and Share Center.
