Local Businesses gather in Three Lakes coffee shop
THREE LAKES - Local businesses got a chance to show off their creations Sunday at Fika's Bakery and Coffee in Three Lakes. 

People could come in and get a cup of coffee while seeing the different things for sale.


One shop owner, Patty Wallesverd, has been setting up at Fika's Bakery and Coffee for the past few weekends. She's enjoyed doing this and having an opportunity to show off her homemade creations.

"I jumped on the opportunity to sell my dresses and my booties," said Wallesver. "It's just a lot of fun to sit here, knit, talk to people, and sell a few things."

Another woman involved with Wallesverd's business, Pat Wheeler, said it's fun to be helpful. She thinks the event made it easier for locals to find the business and help sales go up.

"We've encountered people we wouldn't normally encounter," said Wheeler. "Then they'll go home and tell their friends and come back later next week, or later the same day, so it's helpful."

This isn't just a one-day event either. They'll be back for a couple more Sundays in Fika's Bakery and Coffee before Christmas.
