Wives watching their husbands play hockey during the weekend tournament at the Stettler Rec Centre got a pleasant diversion.

On March 19, in the conference room, 18 home-based sellers were present to sell their products. There were ladies selling Punkinhead Kids, Norwex, Tupperware and Arbonne, among many others.

Mothers coming to pick up their kids from practice made a stop in the conference before going to get their kids.

Allison Baird, Stettler representative for a company that sells cloth diapers and natural parenting accessories was the main organizer for the event.

“It’s to get everybody together so people have an opportunity to sell their stuff and get more exposure in the community. “

Two similar fairs were held in December at Goodsense Healthcare to give customers the chance to buy Christmas gifts.

Saturday’s fair was the first time so many sellers and customers could attend.

“It’s been good, it’s been steady,” said Baird.

“Everybody’s selling lots or booking parties.”

Ideally, Baird would like to have at least two or three fairs every year.

“I plan on having the next one in the summer,” said Baird.

People wanting to get more info about the fair should look for its Facebook group page.

Baird also encourages all Stettler home-based sellers to come to the next fair.
