we are in the last few months of 2018 and boy oh boy we feel this year has flown right by!
on the bright side .. we have the best few months ahead of us, as its holiday market season and this city goes wild for their fine crafted talent, we are honored to curate this annual event and feature five authentic creators our city has to offer!
let us share with you the exhibitors at our upcoming quaint gathering:
welcome Olympia! a seasoned goldsmithing yogi, she is me! yes, I’m actually introducing myself and as strange as it may be to the reader, its equally odd for me! good thing, I have nothing to hide. as transparent as I am .. one thing you will see is pure love. I mean for everything and if that doesn’t fit the normal bill then hop on over to my world of forged precious metal, here at this fine annual event you will arrive face to face with my holiday collections made with so much love, you’ll feel like you took a piece of me home with you xo (and don’t forget to hug the creators!) ;)
TRACE OF GREY
welcome Monique! exceptional leather love, seriously huge girl crush here! hand crafted at its finest. her pieces are eclectic/boho/raw and made with an old world traditional style of hand sewing each stitch of these gorgeous bags, wallets, clutches, belts .. ahhhh this list goes for miles! hand stitched! hand dyed! omgoodness the detail and exquisiteness of all trace of grey’s pieces will blow your mind yet somehow ground you. to top it off, this entire package of uniqueness arrives from a stylish groovy gal that will embrace you simply with her wild smile! you may leave with one, perhaps two items of pure authentic love strapped across your body, but most certainly a piece for a lifetime. just sayin’
FREDI RHAN POTTER
welcome Fredi! what can I say about a fabulous lady that works with one of the most desirable mediums! she creates from her sweet quaint home studio and is also an educator at shadbolt centre (and one of these days I will be your student!) fredi is an accomplished potter, she creates within and well outside the box, traditional and authentic you will ooze all over her beautiful wares, (I am a super lucky to have a stunning berry bowl live in my home and at times I leave it out because it looks gorgeous, and that’s a huge compliment if you knew how clear my counters are daily), you will devour her creations and if you’re spontaneous you may just sneak in a beautiful hug from this gorgeous soul and keep holding on, she's a doll!
welcome Nikol! we go back a little ways, she is my first "artist" creative friend, I have ogled on just about every single one of her paintings, she is a master at perfecting every aspect of a crow, but the one that landed in my humble home is of a geisha, figure that! you will adjust your appreciation for talent, she has invested many years cultivating a respectable name for herself as an aspiring artist; then you meet her and her aura of kindness with a dollop of mysterious will envelope you! wait and see ..
welcome Mandy! not only is she is our queen of apothecary, mandy is the whole package. she touches our heart is so many ways, an mindful massage therapist, reiki master, and then add some irresistible body care for your sweet body and soul, and let me tell you upon meeting her, she will genuinely promote relaxation within you. she is a wise one with many encouraging words and sprinkles of advice, a little gentle soul and a courageous one at that!
