Local kids create tasty retail experience
It had been a long spring of social distancing and 14-year-old Ayla Belsby and her 11-year-old sister, Maeve, were trying to figure out what to do with their summer, since many of their usual activities and outlets were unavailable during the pandemic.
“We were just at home or at the lake all the time,” Ayla said. “We had all this time and freedom to mess around and experiment. It seemed like we should do something with it.”
One hot day the girls were floating on Pearrygin Lake with their aunt, Mara Zepeda, and the creative wheels began spinning. “Mara kept throwing ideas at us,” Maeve said. “She asked us, ‘What if we had a business?’ So then we just had to figure out what to do.”
