ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5)--Local vendors looking to expand their business and get their name out had the chance to do so at the Vendor Blender.

The first Vendor Blender started at the home of Katy Barker. The event became so popular that this year she had to rent a bigger venue -- the Sai Convention Center.
    
More than 50 small retailers sold arts and crafts, clothing, jewelry and home products. Barker says it's a great way for business owners to get a bigger profit.

"Some folks did better than others. But, it gave everyone a chance to share what they do and for folks to see their product. We had a lot of vendor to vendor events coming up. It's a great way for each other to get to know each other and share upcoming events," she said.  

Barker plans to hold the next Vendor Blender this Christmas.
