In a couple of weeks I will be heading down to Calgary to attend the Market Collective 5 year anniversary party, and what a party it is going to be! It will be at the lovely old Metawa Armoury building in downtown Calgary and will include music, a pop-up farmers market, an awesome collection of market collective vendors, and more!
With all the attention on Calgary since the flood, it’s hard not to feel excited about going there and contributing in my own small way to help the city get back on it’s feet again. So, in honour of those thoughts, I will be making a special flood relief item for selling with the rest of my handmade soaps and skincare. It’s a secret…, so I can’t tell you any more details, but I promise to donate all the proceeds from the sale of that item to the Flood Relief effort fund. Sound good or what?
I’ve always had a soft spot for Calgary and definitely enjoy visiting there. I know Edmonton and Calgary are supposed to have this big rivalry, but when it comes down to it, the cities are siblings. a bit of rivalry for sure, but when the going gets tough, you can always count on each other to help out when you most need it. See you soon!
