A happy last week of October/first week of November to you!
Things are hopping and happening on Salt Spring Island. Gift sets are being prepared for upcoming markets and are going online for sale as well. These are all limited supply so if you want one (or a few) please order online quickly so that you aren't disappointed. Smaller gift sets make great stocking stuffers or teachers gifts or hostess gifts for the upcoming holiday season. It's always worth it to have a few on hand for those surprise quick gifts when needed for a party or event.
It was a chilly last market day on Salt Spring Island last Saturday but it is officially completed for the year. See you next April for the 2024 Salt Spring Island Farmers Market. I'd like to say I've got a break this week but I'm so busy trying to get as much stock built as possible for upcoming markets that it certainly doesn't feel like a break. However, this upcoming Saturday, I will not have to be at a market. I'll be at home, making and filling orders! And then the Holiday season begins:
Nov 10 - 12th - Creative Craft Fair - Victoria
Nov 17-19th - West Coast Women's Show BC Place Downtown Vancouver
Nov 23 - 26th - Signatures Convention Center Winnipeg
Dec 2 & 3rd Made in the 604 North Vancouver Pipe Shop, The Shipyards
Dec 8 - 10th - Winter Weekend Holiday Market Nanaimo Art Gallery
Dec 8 & 9th - PNE Winter Fair, Vancouver
Dec 16 & 17 - Vancouver Winter Market Yaletown
Dec 14 to 23rd - PNE Winter Fair, Vancouver
And phew! I am then taking a week or two to plot my 2024 happenings. There's alot that I want to do and am looking forward to planning that out for the year...but let's get through the next couple of months first. Can I say how excited I am to be getting out to see you all at the above events?!? I am so excited. Now, this feels like Christmas!!
I look forward to seeing you at the upcoming events. I'm thinking my blogging may slow down over the next couple of months as I will use my time to be making stock for the events/markets/fairs. For this reason, I will also not have my Work With Me Wednesdays running regularly until 2024.
I do want to always thank you for your support and continued support. It means alot to my business and my plans for 2024. Thank you for supporting handmade and small business. I appreciate it so very much! Sending all of my love and look forward to seeing you in the weeks ahead to whichever event we meet again at!
