The Kenston community gets in the holiday spirit at the Silver Bells Holiday Boutique

By Leilah Shafer

Kenston High School hosted the annual Silver Bell Boutique featuring local vendors, Girl Scout crafts, and more on Saturday, Dec. 1.

At this yearly event put on by the PTO, vendors join together in the Kenston High School gym and cafeteria area to try and reach new customers and provide gifts for the holidays.

These small business owners try to find a way to make their products special and different from other businesses who are selling the same type of products. They try to bring in the new customers who are looking for a new spin on the everyday products you find in retail stores.

“My friend came to me and asked, ‘What do you know about sugar scrubs?’. I knew she wanted to do something and didn’t know exactly what it was, so I said I will get back to you in 24 hours. I researched everything and not even 24 hours later, I told her, ‘I don’t know what we are doing but I’m in,’” said Kisha Stanley, owner of Sugar & Scrubs.

New trends and new ideas shape some of these unique businesses and grab attention of those who are into being good to the environment.

“We sell lotions, hair products, face products and lots more. All of our products are vegan and 100% cruelty free. We use a type of African oil for all of our lotions so they aren’t oily,” said Rachelle De Castro from Perfectly Posh.

The event features small businesses, some which started with one person in a garage with a great idea.

“We just really liked doing crafts and we really just started in our garage making the small stuff. We have been doing it for seven years now and it seemed like it was just the thing to do and people seemed to really enjoy it,” said Lisa Rufiange from Holy Crap.

The annual Silver Bells Boutique has been going on for eight years and it never fails to disappoint the locals coming in to look around.
