This is it folks, I have been working many a months on creating stock for my favourite holiday show of the year. When I am not doing social media consulting, photography jobs, or teaching art or SUP Yoga I am painting letters or canvases or sorting wee images into catchy magnetic collages. Tomorrow is set up day for the Bottega Christmas Show in Kelowna.
Bottega Farm is hosting the fifth annual charity Christmas Market on Saturday, November 28th & Sunday, November 29th from 11am – 5pm.
Over the two days, the festive market will feature some of the Okanagan’s finest artists & crafters . Festive live music, kids activities, specialty treats, food, drink + much more, all set in the heart of beautiful South East Kelowna at Bottega Farm
Minimum donation $3 | children are free
All proceeds in support of Karis Support Society; a local charity that provides safe housing, support, life skills, and training for people caught in life altering addiction and mental health.
Karis Society supports a cause close to my heart and it's a magical venue in the forest with live music, wonderful food and the most beautiful Christmas spirit always. I am so honoured to be picked as a returning vendor.
Being a maker is not easy and unlike a 9-5 typical job there is no guarantee with pay no matter how hard you work. A forty hour work week would be a luxury during peak selling seasons and you pour your heart into your wares. Artists and makers of all types often struggle to make a living in the name of following their passion. This Black Friday weekend don't support the big box stores and be blinded by the masses into crappy stuff you don't need. Shop local, shop small, support your community. Find Christmas Spirit in events filled with the energy and passion of people working in a sustainable, creative way.
Come say hello and see what I have been working on with Eachanoriginal, I have been working with them for over a year now and love sharing their line with stores and at shows. Handpainted pieces all made in Kelowna with love. This show is juried and has a really gifted group of artisans, you will not be disappointed.
