With four school age boys between the two of us, we were always looking for cool teachers gifts, after many unsuccessful searches we decided that the best gift is always something handmade, so that’s when we started sewing, knitting and cooking up fresh scented soaps and lotions. The boys are now grown-ups! and we still love making one of a kind gifts, which we now sell every Saturday at The Old Strathcona Farmers Market.
What was once a curtain, or grandma’s old tablecloth, is now a funky reversible bag. We are always searching for “treasures” whether it’s a garage sale on the weekend, a “quick” stop at the local thrift store, or a trip to our local fabric store, our shopping trips are always an experience!
