DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) - Some people were able to get a jump start on their holiday shopping Saturday, and at the same time, help promote local business.
It was all in thanks to the third annual One Stop Shop Open House, held from 8 a.m to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Wabash and Erie Canal Interpretive Center in Delphi.
The is the third year for the event, which is held on the first Saturday in November. The One Stop Shop Open House brought in venders from local and surrounding areas.
Event coordinator Marty Reef says she started the open house to promote local business owners and the community.
“It's a lot of fun. It's a great thing for this community to come down and see, and not only can they be here, but they can also come and tour the canal park and the museum as well. So we're promoting each other,” said Reef.
Vender and small business owner, Cindy Stanford, couldn't agree more with Reef. Stanford has been a vender the past two years and said she see's the open house as a great opportunity for local vendors.
“Being a small business owner, we don't have a lot of the resources that we can do for advertising, and it lets people know what's available in the local areas,” said Stanford.
Some of the items at Saturday's open house included crafts, food, and handmade items.
Anyone interested in next year's One Stop Shop Open House can contact the Erie Canal Interpretive Center.
