ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Folks in Rochester got a head start to their seasonal shopping at the Holiday Business and Craft Show Saturday.

At the Exhibit Hall in Civic Center, shoppers and venders gathered to buy and sell some holiday items. After a difficult year for small businesses, some are replying heavily on sales this time of year. Items that were sold include clothing, candles, makeup, lotions and of course, winter crafts.

Many shoppers, like Rochester Brianna Brehm, are eager to support local businesses this holiday season.

“I think a lot of them are small businesses. And if they have very good intentions and love helping out the community, I think it’s really good to support them because they support you,” Brehm said.

Brehm also said that she likes to get her holiday shopping done earlier which is why she went to check out the craft show this weekend.
