A Ladies Day Out vendor fair was held at Straight Home in Hardin on Saturday, Oct. 23, from 1-4 p.m. The event was jam-packed with vendors from all over the area for ladies to stop in and peruse. Additionally, there were refreshments, painting sign sets, giveaways, and a 50/50 drawing.
According to event organizer and owner of MAB’S Customs, Debbie Benoist, there were 13 total shops set up. “There were four cancellations and we still ended up at capacity,” said Benoist, “it was a solid turnout.”
Throughout the afternoon, people came through the fair, purchasing from the small businesses that were setup at Straight Home. There were clothing items, accessories, handmade items, cookware, decor, candles, and so much more.
Some of the vendors included, Kristin’s Kreations, LuAnne Reynolds with Scentsy, Jamie Kattelman with White Cottage, Alicia Ufer with Pampered Chef, Ashleigh Frazier with Epoxy Farms, Lisa Hayn selling her homemade jewelry, Jaylyn Sexton and Jamie Buchanan with Be Unique Be Yourself Boutique, and so much more. “Events like this really help to get the word out about [the vendors],” Benoist said.
After the success of the event, Benoist said she would like to see this become an annual occurrence. She is also planning a Christmas-themed Ladies Day Out in November of this year.
“Thank you so much to the vendors that participated,” said Benoist. “This wouldn’t have been an event without you guys.”
