PICS: Cameron, Texas’ Entrepreneurial Spirit Was On Display Saturday
Before this weekend, I had never been to the the town of Cameron, Texas besides as a young girl driving through on the way to Houston. That changed this weekend when I got to experience not only Cameron the town, but also the people of Cameron and their hospitality.
Not only were they extremely hospitable, but they were also very down-to-earth and so very welcoming. Most importantly, they are outstanding entrepreneurs and, and that was on fully display.
Jalaura Melton hosted an amazing event that she put together to showcase the entrepreneurial spirit of Cameron and highlight the local business owners and merchants working hard out there.
BIG FISH IN A SMALL POND
The Small Business and Big Treasures events were an absolute success. I got to witness at least 15 amazing vendors, and I was so proud to see young ladies of color being entrepreneurs and perfectly showcasing not only their products, but their talents as well.
You had ladies who were getting eyebrows waxed, giving facials, and putting on lashes. You also had other talented ladies displaying handmade wares and other products you could tell they'd poured their hearts and souls into. It was absolutely amazing!
What truly excited me about the event was watching all these people in this community of Cameron coming together and making sure that each other were not only being recognized for their hard work, but were making sure to network with each other. That was so important to me.
Jalaura also had a raffle contest that she did for not only the guests who came out to the event. but also vendors. They had food trucks out there that smelled absolutely delicious. You definitely get a vibe of Cameron, which is big fish in small ponds doing amazing things, and I cannot wait to go back.
If you have never been to an event in Cameron, trust me and take my advice: do not miss the next one.
