Saturday marks the second annual kids vending fair in Uptown

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Some young people had the chance to learn the value of a dollar.

Saturday was the second annual kids vending fair. It was held at Woodruff Park in Uptown.

Organizers say, the fair is a chance for these "kidpreneurs" to sell items that they made.

Some of the items on sale included jewelry, hair bows and duct tape wallets. The participants were from ages seven to 17 years old.

Organizer Sherricka Day explained how the vending fairs are very educational for the kids.

"It just really shows them their creativity and talent is something they can market to the community. It's something they will take in life. It is also something that will encourage to push for hard work," Day said.

Day also says she hopes to continue the fair for years to come. 

The kids were able to keep all the money they made.
