Child entrepreneurs were a success Posted on 08 Jun 2009 by Luanne Belcourt
Square Butte Trading Post hosted a barbacue and flea market in May. We invited the community to set up tables at no cost. These individuals sold their treasures along highway 87, and all made a few dollars. We had two child entrepreneurs, Dezmond Big Bow,age 8 and Henry webster, age 10. Dezmond put up his gently used toys and clothes for sale, and hired his cousin Henry to be his assistant. Their goal was to make enough money to buy a new x-box 360 game. They met their goal! We encourage other child entrepreneurs to set up tables in the future. Don't worry folks, the children were working in 80 degrees weather, but we provided shade, cold drinks, food, and labor, so they came out okay.
