ONEIDA (NBC 26) — Julia Royal spent weeks picking out clips and connecting handmade jewelry. For Julia, this is not just a hobby. She has her own business, JJ’s Jewels, and even has her own business cards.

“I was going to make a pair of earrings for my mom for her birthday, and I found out that I really liked doing it,” Royal said. “So I invested some money, and everybody liked it, so I started making more.”

Royal is one of many young Oneida entrepreneurs who brought their ideas and creations to the Oneida Farmers Market on Thursday. The first annual Homeschool Children’s Business Fair was held and included about 10 vendors.

The fair was organized by Lisa Hubbard, home school teacher and regular Oneida Market vendor.

“They are our next generation. If we don’t train them to think creatively about the product they want in the future, they usually won’t think about it later in life,” says Hubbard.

Young entrepreneur Mara Garner creates fairy and dragon jars. He said he enjoys the fair because it gives him a chance to show his passion to the community.

“The most fun thing is selling them and seeing the look on people’s faces when they buy it, and I think it’s really fun to take what you want to do,” Garner said.

The Oneida Farmer’s Market runs every Thursday from 12pm to 6pm through the first Thursday in October.
