This Saturday, the Swift Current Mall will host a sizeable trade show with a focus on handmade wares and giving small businesses a platform. 

The Spring Fling Market is set to start at 9:00 AM in the Swift Current Mall, lasting all day until 5:00 PM amassing over 40 booths set to show off their hard work.  

Cory Montgomery, the owner of Vibe Events and Marketing, is putting the trade show together. 

“We have everything from there's crocheting, there's baking, there's bath and body skin care, there’s even a lady coming out with smoked cheese company, so there's just a little bit of everything,” stated Montgomery.  

Montgomery has a policy at her trade shows, ensuring that 75% of salespeople are handmade vendors and 25% are other small businesses. 

“If we can get the community to support those local people that are putting hours and hours of time into their creation, rather than going into that big box store, that's my goal,” explained Montgomery. “It gives them an opportunity to sell their wares and to network with other entrepreneurs and just overall grow their business.”
