As I was touring through the market today, I was still high on my previous experience from last week. So many markets and so many people looking to do something special. It was at that time, I wanted to start giving the stage to some of these hard working people. So with my wife in tow, we set off for the market.
One of the main things that the Mission Community Market strives to do is create a space for budding entrepreneurs to display their wares. In this market, one doesn’t have far to travel.
I stopped over at a booth at the start of the market. It was a booth, filled with a few bottles of powders and oils. I met with Kim Leonard, a personable woman who made skincare. She first tempted me with the foot soak, which smelled wonderful. I ended up eying the face scrub, made from ground beans and peas.
I took the product home and used it. It seemed to work on tightening my pores and made my skin feel better. She makes her skin care for people of ethnic backgrounds, other than Caucasian, though it has been used by my roommate and my wife with no ill effects.
This product sold for $6 at her stand. Drop on by and sample her wares this Thursday!
