The Winter Craft Fair

The West Kootenay EcoSociety is once again putting on its annual Winter Craft Fair. This year’s fair will be for just one day, Saturday, Dec. 12, so don’t miss out. This event takes place at the Central School Gym in Nelson and runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. All products on offer are hand-made locally so you know you are supporting the local economy when you shop at this fair.

EcoSociety markets director Jesse Woodward said he was thrilled when, like last year, all 28 tables for this market sold out very quickly. “This shows that vendors are excited to be in this fair and that kind of excitement is really appealing,” he said, adding “customers will really appreciate the quality and diversity of the offerings at the Winter Craft Fair and knowing that you are supporting the local economy just makes the whole shopping experience a delightful activity.”

Customers will recognize many vendors from the Downtown, Cottonwood and MarketFest events also run by the EcoSociety. Like the summer markets there will be a wide variety of items for sale including body care products, clothes, hats, photography, baked goods, amazing pottery and much, much more. The Winter Craft Fair will be the last chance of the 2015 market season to shop at these market vendors’ stalls. If you miss this opportunity you will have to wait until mid-May when Cottonwood Community Market starts up once again for a new market season.
