There was a steady flow of customers ready to catch a glimpse of some items they wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to see and all in one room.

On Nov. 5, the United Church in Fort St. James was filled with goods from delicious foods, bath soaps, crafts, clothing and jewellery.

According to one of the organizers, Dorothy Wasylenko, the event has been running for five years.

“This is an excellent opportunity for all of those home based businesses and small businesses to showcase what they have to offer,”Wasylenko said.

“This is their moment to do so because there is no other venue or opportunity to be able to this all in one space.”

And the space certainly brought in a good crowd as community members made their way to each table.

Perhaps they were out to find that perfect Christmas gift or just curious to catch a glimpse of something new.

Whatever the reason, the day was filled with friendly business owners, door prizes and a delectable dessert for those in the mood for something sweet.
