Submitted by West Kootenay EcoSociety

Looking for something distinctive and unique for the special people in your life? Don’t miss out on the West Kootenay EcoSociety Winter Craft Fair! Bring your family and friends and come support your local community.

This year’s fair takes place on Dec. 14 at the Central School Gym, 811 Stanley St., from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. All of the products are handmade locally and the venue is accessible.

“There’s something special about buying a locally made product from a craft fair of local artisans,” says Craig Mullin, EcoSociety markets co-ordinator. “Not only is it going to be unique, you’re also directly supporting our community’s economy by buying straight from the producer.”

Customers will spot some of their favourite vendors from Nelson’s downtown and Cottonwood markets and MarketFest, and there are also new participants at the craft fair. Just like at the summer markets, there will be a wide variety of high-quality and one-of-a-kind items for sale including body care products, clothes, stained glass, custom leather, photography, pottery, baked goods and much, much more.

“We are so grateful for the artistic talent and creativity in our community, and this is an excellent way to support our local artisans. This is our last market of the year, so come join us in celebrating the holidays,” says Mullin.

A $2 to $5 donation is being requested at the door to help EcoSociety cover the costs of this market.
