On July 20 the City Cinderellas had their first of many swap meets on main street in Alta. City Cinderella’s are Christian women capturing dreams for the community by working together to make a difference.

Different people from all over brought in different items to be sold like artwork, Pampered Chef, homemade, or antique items.

Eight vendors lined up on Main Street and all have committed to coming back for a second swap meet in August. Peg Hinkeldey, owner of Alta White House 220 Cupcakery is one of the hard working ladies involved with the City Cinderellas.

“Our goal is to improve downtown Alta,” said Hinkeldey. The group of ladies are hoping to organize more events and include all of the downtown business.

Their hopes are to fill downtown Alta with vendors to entice people to stop and check out the downtown business.

The City Cinderellas have held other similar events including Hometown Christmas that was held in December and How Great Thou Art in April.

They are looking to continue these events throughout the year and Elizabeth Petersen, who is also a part of the City Cinderella’s, is looking to organize another Hometown Christmas in December.

“This all started with the idea of Hometown Christmas and grew from there,” said Hinkeldey.

Hinkeldey is one of the ladies in the group and has her own business that’s been open since 2013 and has hosted several events that are new to Alta.

The City Cinderella’s are just a group of ladies from Alta who have an interest in bettering the community.

The next swap meet will be August 17 from 5 to 8 p.m. in front of the White House 220 Cupcakery Main Street Alta.

This is something they eventually want to do each month during the summer months in the future welcoming more vendors to participate in the future.
