Woolly Mammals — Tresa Muir


Woolly Mammals is back this year with a couple of new animals and accessories. These hand knitted, and individually unique creatures are made from all natural fibres, such as wool, alpaca, cotton, linen and silk. They are a joy to make, and I love the smiles that they give to everyone.

Joanna Lovett Sterling — West coast jewelry designer


When Joanna designs and makes her jewelry and lockets she considers the experience that sparked the creation and the person that will own and wear it.  The materials she works with are mostly recycled re-refined sterling silver, 14k gold, bronze and semi precious stones. Her happiest moments are hearing from people that a piece she has  made has become their adornment signature!

Fancy Boxes — Nancy Bennett


A lifetime of appreciating and studying art has brought me to the creation of one of a kind gift boxes.  I use a variety of techniques, some learned on annual workshops in France to create unique, unusual and beautifully decorated gift boxes designed for regifting.  Utilizing a wide variety of materials applied in a myriad ways keeps my pieces fresh and perpetually interesting.

Take A Fancy Bean to Bar Chocolate & Artisan Ice-Cream —
Becks D’Angelo


This past April, I opened a small shop on the beautiful Sunshine Coast – The Folly Artisan Food Shop, in Roberts Creek. Onsite I have a small chocolate studio and kitchen where I roast & refine cacao in micro-batches and create original ice cream recipes – think cardamom strawb-cherry or blackcurrant w/ Tanzanian dark chocolate!  I will have a selection of chocolate bars & caramels, as well as ice cream pints & ice cream sandwiches. Magical things happen when bean to bar chocolate meets homemade ice cream…

Bernie's Best Christmas Trees — Bernie Smith-Gander


Seven years ago I made the decision to try planting Christmas trees. I planted 1000 tiny 8" seedlings on my family 's farm. I nurtured them, talked to them (much to my Husbands amusement!) and cared for my pretty little trees. They have responded by flourishing on their sunny hillside and are now ready to become someone's "Christmas Tree". Choice of natural Grand or Noble Fir.

Le Meadow’s Pantry — Genevieve Blanchet


Le Meadow's Pantry makes artisan jams and marmalades in Vancouver, BC, using

local fruit and botanicals. All our preserves are cooked 12 jars at a time in French

copper preserving pans to capture the bright flavours and essence of the fruit. Our artisan jams are always first and foremost about the fruit. We don't over-sweeten

or over-flavour, and each jar contains at least half a pound of fruit!

Von Hardenberg Candles — Betty and Klaus von Hardenberg


Klaus and Betty have been making 100% pure beeswax candles since 2004. Although beeswax is used in making many products, the simple, elegant candle with its naturally sweet, honey scent is what we live to create. Handmade in our studio to you.

Charmian Nimmo — Tuxedo Cat Pottery


I've been making pots for almost 40 years and still find joy in every piece I make. I never tire of experimenting with form, surface, and materials so my work continually evolves as I play. My work is all meant for use, safe in the oven, dishwasher and freezer unless otherwise noted. I hope the user of each piece gets as much enjoyment from it as I did making it.

Under the Oak Tree Woodworking Studio — Keith and Kristi Schroots


I have always loved hiking and being out in creation.  I took that enjoyment of nature and in my twenties I picked up a carving knife and started the journey of woodworking I am on! I love taking a rough piece of wood and with time, work and some sweat creating a refined, beautiful, and functional item. Over the years I have added in tools and processes depending on the project, but I value using local materials and hand work whenever possible.  We have our small shop in Chilliwack and it is a lovely spot, under an oak tree.  Kristi has joined me in this work and shares ideas and elbow grease to help me create functional beautiful wood products.  Along with the functional wares I also do custom carvings of St. Nicholas, and friends, as well as custom furniture.

That’s So Cute — Tracy Luu


I’ve always enjoyed crafting as a hobby, and love creating things which are different, but also fun. From felt busy books to cards, each item is handcrafted with hopes that it brings a smile to your face and also joy to those who receive these unique gifts.
