Business owners organizing Trade Days event to begin first weekend in October

With hopes of starting a trend that will explode in popularity, two local business owners have teamed up and organized a local trade days scheduled to be held on a regular basis beginning Saturday, Oct. 6. Bill Derrick of Young’s Jewelry and Tammy Childs of Texas Tumbleweed have scheduled the first of several trade days and with the expected popularity, hope the draw of Brady’s locale will help spawn a popular and well-attended trade days event. “This is an idea we teamed up on, and with some brainstorming, we came up with a location on the south side of town near the intersection of U.S. Hwys. 87 and 71 on the west side of the road,” said Derrick. “It is an idea that has the main goal of bringing folks to Brady to shop as the driving force behind it. For that reason, we really want to encourage local businesses to participate as well.” Derrick touts the new trade days as being a family- oriented event that will feature a wide variety of vendors and booths ranging from handmade arts and crafts to food. Vendor spaces are being sold at $50 and must be pre-paid prior to the event. Dates set for the trade days already include Oct. 6, Nov. 3, Dec. 1 and Dec. 15.
