Two Sweet Aimee Marshall and Terra Lewis, owners and operators of “The Chocolate Chicks,” along with the Economic Development Office of the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe recently held their 3rd Annual Craft Fair at the Akwesasne Senior Center this past Saturday, October 27, 2012. Ms. Marshall stated that the Economic Development office’s Steve Cook and Kasey Thomas have been very helpful in giving support to make this event a reality each year. And by the number of vendors and buyers it turned out to be a successful event. The Economic Development office provided the vendors with free craft tables, a large buffet with food, and advertising. Ms. Marshall and Ms. Lewis are well known in Akwesasne and the North Country for their sweet concoctions all made from home. They are busy year-round with craft fairs, parties, weddings, showers and practically any kind of celebration where “chocolate lovers” can celebrate their sweet tooth. In business for 3 years, they work around 15 hours a day to bring handmade chocolate sweets to your event, home or store. Working from their home they do not have a store front but can be found at many craft fairs in the North Country and on their website: They plan to hold this event every year and craft people need to plan ahead, as they had a waiting list for a vendor’s table this year. The craft sale was well represented with local craftspeople selling everything from handmade splint and sweet grass baskets, to moccasins and handmade quilts and handbags, to autographed sports memorabilia.
