The Salmon festival started yesterday and our display rack at the artisan market is all filled and ready for the more than 200,000 expected tourists to come through over the next 3 weeks. We will be out several times to view the spawning salmon in the river as well as replenish the supply of our handcrafted ones.
As part of the artisan market gift shop, we are to take our turn to help out and demo our work. We will be taking our first shift this coming Friday (Oct 10th) and are looking forward to it.
To get into the spirit of things, we are seeing salmon themed shop windows like in the Intwined Fibre Arts store in Salmon Arm who have some of our salmon zipper charms for sale.
Chum 'N Luba's Unique Boutique here in Chase is selling our salmon jewelry which go really well with some of the new fall designer dresses they have in stock.
This dress happens to have a front zipper and the salmon zipper charm looks like it was made just for it!
These are a couple more of their dresses with a salmon necklace that go really well! I absolutely love this dress and could see myself wearing this! I love the hat too and is handmade from Nelson BC.
The red dress here was in the shop window so was difficult to capture a good picture.
