Danvers Entrepreneur Starts Potholder Stand

DANVERS, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Lemonade stands may be hard to come by during the summer of social distancing.

In Danvers, one young Massachusetts businessman saw the stay-at-home market, and rose to meet it.

9-year-old Caleb Thomas didn't think 2020 felt much like a lemonade-kind of year. So this weekend, he set up a stand in front of his home and stated selling something more apt for this moment of nesting; handmade potholders.

"I started just this morning," he said. "I was planning on selling lemonade, then I just had potholders."

Profits from Caleb's tax-free potholder stand will be split between a college fund and a lego fund, and he told WBZ NewsRadio there are also expansion plans for his business, including a new table and neon signage.
