Youthful entrepreneurs, Kimberley Davis and Shaylin Leclerc of 150 Mile House  are budding jewellery designers.

The duo manned a table of their own at the Made in the Cariboo arts and craft sale held at the Tourism Discovery Centre Nov. 24.

Although one might have assumed they were rookies, the pre-teen duo were actually back for a second season at the event and each item offered for sale on their table was made by one or both of the girls.

There was beadwork; earrings, bracelets and necklaces – all handcrafted by the duo who kept busy on the day (between customers) beading more items and happily chatting away as they worked.

They also had baked goods including butter tarts (an old Davis- family recipe), fudge and poppycock (candied popcorn), along with jams and other preserves.

Although various adult family members stopped by periodically to check on the girls, all the business of the day was handled solely by the girls.

And although they were located on the upper floor in the eagle’s aerie (the upper level balcony over-looking the main floor) business was fairly brisk.
