Young entrepreneurs promote business at suitcase sale


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Young entrepreneurs had a chance to promote their small businesses at the Little Makers Suitcase Sale in Terre Haute.

Ten small business owners from ages 7 to 12, sold their own products at Charm School Creative Studio.

Each child created their products from scratch and they rangedfrom sweet treats to home decor items.

They also took on the responsibility of engaging with customers and handling their own transactions.

One little maker said she was inspired to start her jewelry business, at the age of 8, after realizing she wanted her own computer.

“I asked my mom if I was allowed to start my bracelet business and so she told me I could. So, I went out, bought the beads, the elastic and everything I needed. I started making the bracelets and I was able to buy my computer,” said 9-year-old Grayci Phillips.

This is the third year for the Little Makers Suitcase Sale.

Those wanting to be involved can apply with Charm School Creative Studio.
