9NEWS is saluting local young entrepreneurs and recently invited several to be guests on our morning show.
At just 20-years-old, Mary Sortebergshe is the founder of Fragile Glory Impressions. She makes hand-made greeting cards in water color and colored pencil.
Tanner Barkin (19) and Taylor Palmie (18) are the creators of Alkaline Clothing company. It's a T-shirt screening business. The pair does all the designing and printing themselves.
Ingrid and Anders of Critters and Creations, 6 and 9-years-old respectively, make polymer clay critters. They are hand-painted and stand on rocks. They are perfect for the garden.
