Trade show seeks entrants


The Women of Oliver for Women (WOW) Society is calling for entries to its annual “Mainly for Women” Trade Show held on Saturday, February 21, 2015 from 10 a.m. – at the Oliver Community Centre. This popular event hosts home business booths such as housewares, preserves, jewellery, photography, clothing, pottery, woodworking, linens, and home decor items. The show also welcomes small business owners who want to promote their services via information tables. Entries must be submitted by February 2.

The show’s wide variety of booths attracts more than women customers. The name of the show reflects the charitable work the society does: proceeds from booth registration goes towards local projects that assist women and children. ┬áPast beneficiaries include worthy causes such as Desert Sun Counselling, a Citizenship scholarship for a student graduating from the high school and a bursary for women who through circumstances need to return to the work force and require further education or training.

An entry form for the trade show is located here, as well as the guidelines for participants:

The successful entrants will be contacted to confirm their table.
