Jingle Bell Holiday Mart is Saturday December 9 at the Fairgrounds


The Bourbon County Fair Association’s 3rd Annual Jingle Bell Holiday Mart is this Saturday, December 9 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Emelia Whiteacker is the organizer of the event for the fair board that raises funds for maintaining the fairgrounds year-round, said Addie Foster, one of the vendors.

Foster is a sister to Whiteacker and they have spice products to sell in their M M Flavor booth.

Leanna Leatherman, who had organized the event in the past, died earlier this year and the fair board asked Whiteacker to take over the duties, Foster said.

The event is in two buildings: the Cloverleaf Event Center and the Yaeger Building on the Bourbon County Fairgrounds. The Yaeger Building is adjacent to the poultry building and the Cloverleaf is where meals are served during the fair.

There will be food,  clothing, crafts, and other possible Christmas present items to purchase.

Foster and her sister Emelia Whiteaker are the owners of MMM Flavor Shop which sells spices.

In addition,  Care to Share, a local helping organization for cancer survivors,  will have pancakes, biscuits and gravy, and a baked potato bar available for purchase in the Cloverleaf Event Center.

Housed in the Yaeger Building will be Mrs. Claus’s Kitchen featuring:  Mrs. Claus’s Coffee Shop, Hamilton’s Artisan Bakery, Donna Jo’s Homemade Fudge, Peace Acres Freeze Dried Candy, and Mmm Flavor Shop.

The Cloverleaf Event Center will have vendors:  Locust Hill Lamancha Goat Milk Products, Sally Kraft, Tessie’s Trendy Nails-Color Street, Flying P Ranch, Write On, Bear’s Nectar LLC, Mary Kay-Lauren Wagner, Scentsy-Laken Brittain, Happy Little Candle Company, All Things Cute and Cuddle, On the Farm, Kitty’s Kitchen, Turkey Forge, Gyp and Jo, Cattywampus Creations, and Art by SueP.

Blue Dog Wine Co. will also be in the Cloverleaf Event Center with their locally made wines.

“There are more vendors this year with many hand-crafted items under $10 for the tight budgets,” Whiteacker said.
