FAIR GROVE, Mo. -- Do some early holiday shopping this weekend and supporting local women in business. This Saturday is the first "Women In Business Expo." The event will feature more than 40 vendors, offering food, clothing, jewelry, home decor and much more.
Rebekah Batson, a mother of 3 and owner of Mrs. B's Accessories, organized the event.
She says she wanted to give back to the community after the success of her handmade children's clothing line. Batson just opened her studio near Fair Grove this year after working in her home's basement to get the business off the ground.
She says what started out as a few businesses getting together quickly turned into a much bigger affair when word spread about the expo. It's this Saturday, Oct. 20, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. just north of Fair Grove outside of Mrs. B's studio off Route AA. Batson says each business will givE away a prize. Tickets will be drawn at the event for those winners.
