May is here! With the easing of the restrictions of winter that May should bring and life in general, there is much discussion in my household of what 2022 will look like as far as reaching customers. Of course, there is always online and I thank you for all the continued support in that area. This will be a huge force of the business moving forward now and in the years ahead.
Now that restrictions are lifted I feel able to take on some pop up markets too. This is for those craving that in person, pick up things and sniff them and chat with me kind of buying experience, I have signed up for Scattered Seeds in October and will be braving that event this coming Fall/Christmas season. I am thinking about the Christmas show at The Convention Centre in Winnipeg this coming Christmas as well but haven't made a final decision on that one just yet. And I will be attending the Arnes Farmer's Market this Summer and Fall which means as of May 21st, I will be where you can come and browse and chat with me in a market setting. I will post more details online as it gets closer and I have more details.
Wholesale accounts have stocked up for the summer and these include:
Lucky Stone Books - 33 Centre Street, Gimli, MB
Vintage Corner Store - 19013 Provincial Route 210, Woodridge, MB
Wow Mahbuhay - 108 Wasagaming Drive, Clear Lake, MB - summer season starts May 1st, 2022 and they plan on going into the Christmas season too! (note they are no longer at The Johnston Terminal at The Forks)
New product update! New prototypes are being made and tested and I am hopeful that those will start to be sold in the next few months. These are really exciting for me and I'm looking forward to all of the great ways that I can further create my one of a kind, handmade, artsy brand. It is a huge challenge learning how to develop the new items so it does take time. I feel that it will be worth it in the end and in the meantime, I'm trusting the process of learning what can be done successfully and creatively.
So to recap....
Arnes Farmers Market (Saturdays and Sundays starting May long weekend to October)
Scattered Seeds October 14-16th, 2022

As always, thank you so much for your continued support! I appreciate it so very much! I love when you love what I love to do!
See you soon!
