The weather was definitely not on the side of the various vendors, or customers, participating in the last Christmas Market at The Little Red Spade on December 12, so we decided to help them out. Below are some photos with links to the vendors websites and social media pages. We encourage you to support local and get in touch to do your Christmas shopping and show your support for these local artisans and crafters.

Inside the shop you can find HOBO handmade cigar box guitars, charcuterie boards, jewellrey, handcrafted leather purses, fusion paint, a wall of wool and so much more. New on Friday, Lorette has generously provided space for the Ladies of Wildpine to raise funds for the Stittsville Food Bank through the sale of their handmade totes, Christmas themed gift bags and aprons.

(Julie was selling her calming jewellery pieces, along with her daughter Emilie who at age 14 creates beautiful crocheted hats, scarves, toys and headbands. You can check out Julie’s creations at In Balance Jewelry and Emilie can also be found on Facebook at EverythingEmilie.)
(This new small business was offering bright, abstract acrylic paintings, along with beautiful hand-woven coasters, placemats, phone covers and key tags to name a few items. You can check them out at Rusty’s Remarkables.)
(Everything says pampering, when it comes to Bathe and Lather. From organic, 100% natural bath oils to handmade soaps and bath salts, one can relax in a wonderfully luxurious bath. They even offer bath soap for your dogs!)
(Have you heard of Dis ‘n’ Dat? This local couple have a splendid collection of charcuterie boards and hand hooked rugs, artwork and flower pot rugs. They also sell beeswax wraps to help reduce the use of plastic.)
(Looking for the perfect bib for your messy kids? These homemade bibs come in lots of fun patterns and fit sizes 6 months to 2 years. Contact to order yours.)
