Area consumers have a chance to get a jump on their Christmas shopping this Saturday at the Fall into Winter trade show at Red Deer’s iHotel.

Being held for the second consecutive year, Fall Into Winter will involve approximately 50 exhibitors representing a variety of products and services, said organizer Melissa Flinn. In addition to items like candles, jewelry, clothing and cosmetics, there will also be things like life insurance and mortgage services, she said.

“It’s a little bit of everything, actually,” said Flinn, comparing the mix to what you find at Red Deer’s Public Market.

Some of the exhibitors operate out of stores, but the majority are home-based, she said.

“Trade shows are very popular for home businesses, and it’s a great way to get your name out there and to get customers and sell your product.”

Flinn organizes a similar trade show in the spring, called Spring into Summer. That event was held this year and in 2012.

Fall into Winter will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It will feature a number of raffles in support of the Red Deer Christmas Bureau.
