How did you spend your Canada Day? Hope it was awesome! I spent the day at the South Shuswap Canada Day Market in Blind Bay. My family has gone to the Canada Day celebrations there for many years. I was about one and a half the first time I watched the parade of old cars and floats. That is me and my Dad.
after launching our online store last spring, we had a few different retailers reach out to carry parts of the Shuswap Soul line. Then I started reaching out to others (and if you are an awesome retailer in the area, we should talk ;)
i decided to be a store in the Canada Day market this year. We got a tent, ordered some extra stuff including some awesome insulated water bottles since every other year I have been to the Canada Day market it has been crazy hot. My Dad helped me paint some signs and figure out how to hang a clothing bar in a tent.
I got to meet lots of people. Even in the rain, I was excited about how many people came out to see the parade, hear live music, eat some food and check out the market. I also had a chance to meet other vendors from the area and some awesome people including Jody from Big Juicy Life who wrote this cool story about my company. As a side note, White Lake Organics makes the best chocolate chip cookies!
My mom and I made this little video of our day except we forgot to take any shots when there were lots of people around
