Barter, Trade and The Holidays
by Ardell Taykowski


Who would think they could barter/trade for almost everything they needed for the Holidays?


I know hundreds of thousands of businesses and individuals that do exactly that!


Absolute Barter has been helping others with their holiday needs for nearly nine years.


Do you ever wish you could have your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners or other holiday meals catered for no cash out of pocket?


Do you ever wish you could throw a holiday party to celebrate and reward your clients and employees…with little or no out-of-pocket expense?


Me too… and so do many others. The difference wanting and having is this: Companies and organizations who have joined Absolute Barter Company can celebrate the holidays for 100% barter/trade.


This can include event planners, catered food, DJ, decorations, gifts, videography, table/chair rentals and venue rental. Local ABC members offer all this and more.


Barter is also a great way to bonus your employees at the holidays. Maybe your business is one of those that are a seasonal business and the fall and winter can be a bit “depressing” because funds are very tight. Nonetheless, you want to reward your employees for a job well done throughout the year and to help them to have a happy holiday too. This can be accomplished through barter — in fact, barter has the ability to literally change peoples’ lives for the better.


In November, Absolute Barter has an annual Holiday Open House for our clients to shop for the people in their life—employees, family and friends—all at 100% barter/trade. We have nearly 50 tables of gifts for almost everyone in your life. We have our open house in November for a reason; we choose to have it the Saturday before the BIG Black Friday sale on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Our clients come and shop and if there is someone they just can’t find that gift for, they can still hit the stores for the sales…so they are not missing anything!


This event is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. If you are not part of the Absolute Barter Company network (yet), our locally-owned business members accept cash and credit cards too! Please come join us and see what barter is all about!

This year we are having the Holiday Open House at:

The Crowne Plaza Airport Hotel

11228 Lone Eagle Dr.

Bridgeton, MO 63044

11:00am – 4:00pm
