Expo to feature small businesses

OSCEOLA COUNTY — Shoppers still looking to check their Christmas lists twice may find what they need at this weekend's Second Annual Osceola County Expo.

The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 13, in the Community Building at the Osceola County 4-H FFA Fairgrounds. About 50 home-business vendors will fill the space offering brand including Mary Kay, Tastefully Simple, Jamberry Nails, Tupperware and more, while other local residents offer arts, crafts and homemade items. Concessions also will be available.

"There are a lot of unique things that people make that will be at the expo," said event organizer Jennifer Walters. "It's good to come for holiday purchases or just to support people in their business."

Walters said she enjoys seeing and talking with the expo attendees as they browse. Hosting the expo is rewarding for her, and she hopes many will head to the event to enjoy its offerings.
