Finch's Vendor Expo is the most recent family owned and operated endeavor by Randy and Nancy Finch. In 1975 Randy started his novelty business out the side door of his fathers popcorn truck. Nancy jumped right into the mix 3yrs later to team up and grow the small novelty business into what is now RJ Finch Enterprizes Inc. From selling off a card table out the side door to multi-table set ups at fairs, festivals, and large firework shows. But this was only the side business.
Randy, now retired from a career that started in 1985 with the city of Milwaukee sewer department, and Nancy, an employee at U.S. Bank since 1979 and a tax preparer at H&R Block since 2007, have run multiple businesses in there spare time. From 93'-95' they ran Trixies Pub and then Clownin Around from 95'-03'.
After a short break of running things they got involved with the Oak Creek Lions Club. After years of volunteering to help the community with events like Food for Families and the March of Dimes walk, the Lions offered another chance to get involved. Members since 2007, both recipients of the Melvin Jones fellowship, and Nancy being the first back to back acting women president of the Oak Creek Lions, they are looking for a more direct way to give back to the community.
Enter Finch's Vendor Expo!
Evolving the growing novelty/general merchandise business into a store that we are inviting like entrepreneurs into. After many years of setting up and tearing down displays, this venue will offer a stable location indoors to further grow the family business. Why not just a store front? We know the struggle that individuals face in the vendor business and want to offer a solution for everyone. Only being open on the weekends, with customer focused shopping hours, will allow our vendors the greatest opportunity to succeed and still have free time for their lives and families. Vendors will have 10x10 or larger booths to display their merchandise. If booking for multiple weekends, they are allowed to leave there set ups at the end of each show. Customers can expect a wide ever changing friendly atmosphere, to walk around in and find hidden treasures.
The Finch family would like to thank everyone in advance for making this opportunity happen, and we look forward to providing an amazing venue to shop and sell in.
See you Soon!
