There’s no show like it anywhere in BC. It’s an intimate part of Boundary culture. On Friday December 4th and Saturday December 5 artisans converge at gallery 2 in the historic courthouse for the 9th Annual Artisan Christmas Faire. Surrounded by stained glass, wood, and the arts, these artisans will bring their best work from the last 12 months, to give you a chance to browse their merchandise, and shop for your holiday gift giving.
You’ll discover beautiful, handmade artisan crafts, while listening to the melodious songs from the harp, played skillfully by Jenn Fenn. Or have a seat in the bistro, right in the gallery, and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, Christmas baking, or even have your lunch.
When you visit gallery 2 on December 4th and 5th, you’ll find the artists on both floors – this year’s show will be full to capacity. The holiday joy and comfort is brimming over, ready for you to enjoy on the first weekend in December. The selection will be great with PotterBees’ Sandy-Jo Lewis, jewellery and stained glass, by Tracey Jory, and Alex Semenoff’s distinctive wood turnings. New to the show will be Lana Halisheff with her handmade, natural skincare products, John and Leda Fair of Midway with crafted handmade bird houses and canes, Fran Etson with her fabric creations and quilts. Jill Gunnarson, Paper Garden and Kathryn Hankey are back from previous shows and more…
This year you just might leave the gallery with more artwork than you planned. An exciting new feature will have you coming back for more. When you make a purchase from one of the artisans or from the gallery gift shop, you’ll receive a draw ticket. Put one part of the ticket in the draw for the hour, and you enter for a chance to win the door prize – your pick of any of the artisan crafts offered for the draw. You’ll have a chance to win every hour, so be sure and stick around and enjoy the show and come back on Saturday. You could take home a special piece of Boundary culture, for free.
