Cedar Accessories featured several of their most popular prod
ucts Saturday at the BCHS Spring Expo.
The BCHS Football team hosted a Spring Expo this past Saturday in the Barren County High gymnasium. The event was held in hopes of helping the team and allowing the community an opportunity to come in and browse local vendors.
The event was under the direction of Charolette Arnett, who works in Monroe County where she organizes local events such as the annual Watermelon Festival. Arnett works with the local 4-H chapter of Monroe County, too. Arnett says she typically takes care of booking around 100 booths, but for Barren County’s Spring Expo she took care of around 23 booths.
The new BCHS sports shirts are now available featuring sev-
eral BCHS Sports teams.
The event featured several vendors from a Sno-Ball truck to wood crafts to LuLaRoe designer clothing. According to David Befaw of Cedar Accessories located in Edmonton, Kentucky, setting up at local outings is something he does often.
“[I set up at] Schools; churches; some craft fairs; flea markets,” described Befaw. “Generally we meet them [patrons] in town. We don’t have a storefront.”
Befaw mentioned that Cedar Accessories has a Facebook that can be found at “Cedar Accessories” and he also said anyone can call Cedar Accessories at (270) 432-5141.

Away from the billowing grill and aroma of cedar, the gymnasium, packed with skin care products and floral arrangements, featured all new BCHS sports shirts. According to Arnett, the shirts are still on sale for $20.
“Anyone can contact us through the Barren County High School Facebook page, and leave a message on there and tell us what size. Then we can work out where to [get the shirt(s) to them].”
For those who did not get a chance to come to the Spring Expo, they will have another chance. Arnett said, “We’re going to try to get, maybe, another day set up to where people can place orders.” The date has not been decided as of now.
