I also met a young girl named Destiny, who is on her way to being an entrepreneur – she was selling ‘button bracelets’ that she made herself. She explained how he made the button bracelets. She chose the desired buttons, put the big button on first, then made sure it was centered with the length of the bracelet string, then she added the smaller buttons. She was very proud of her button bracelets and definitely has a great business going on and I can see her really being something one day!
My son and I walked around the Jasper Farmers Market a couple of times before leaving to drive to Canton to the bank. I definitely love all the things about our Market. You can’t beat home grown and home made!!!
