Many of the regular vendors from the Cottonwood Falls market and MarketFest will be at the EcoSociety's Winter Craft Fair.

EcoSociety Winter Craft Fair returns

Winter Craft Fair will take place at the Central School Gym at 811 Stanley Street on December 14 and 15, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The West Kootenay EcoSociety is once again putting on its annual Winter Craft Fair.

New for this year, the Winter Craft Fair will run for two days — December 14 and 15. It will take place at the Central School Gym at 811 Stanley Street and will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both days.

All of the products that will be on offer are handmade locally so you know you are supporting the local economy when you shop at this fair.

EcoSociety’s Markets director, Jesse R. Woodward, said that he was thrilled when all of the 28 tables for the market sold out very quickly.

“This shows that vendors are excited to be in this fair and that excitement is infectious,” he said. “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 of the vendors from the Downtown, Cottonwood and MarketFest events that are also run by the EcoSociety. Like the summer markets there will be a wide verity of items for sale including body care products, clothes, hats, hand-spun yarns, hand-made chocolates, amazing pottery and much more.

The Winter Craft Fair will be one of the last chances of the 2013 market season to shop at these market vendors’ stalls. A $2 donation is being requested at the door to help EcoSociety cover the costs of this market.

This market will also be the last place that you can purchase a $5 ticket for the “Get Your Gear On” raffle that EcoSociety has been running for the last month. The lucky winner will receive a $200 gift certificate for each of the five participating outdoor gear shops on Baker Street for a total prize of $1,000. You can still buy a ticket, until December 13, at these participating stores: R.O.A.M, Valhalla Pure Outfitters, Boomtown Sports, Sacred Ride, and Gerick Cycle and Ski.

West Kootenay EcoSociety is a Nelson-based non-profit organization focused on  education, outreach, community building, research, and advocacy to protect the natural environment while building a just and sustainable world.
