Canada Day Weekend - WEST Handmade Village - Osborne Street Festival

10 WESTies banded together to create our own hand made village on Osborne Street in Winnipeg over the Canada Day week end. We set up 4 tents of awesome handmade Etsy artisan items!

Amidst a sea of mass produced items we stood out loud and proud!

Marie from YamasMaries table - sorry, I some how didn't get a picture of the lovely Marie! In the back ground is Louise of SoGaSoap, who was my next over neighbour and I somehow seemed to have also missed in my photo taking! Bad bad captain!

Here's some of her subject appropriate soap in lieu of apology!

Jennifer of ToxieDesigns,one or our fabulous leaders!

Sarah of FlatLandersSoapCo

Angie of ByBlackBirdDesigns and Steam Punk Trunk.

Deb of HoshiiDesigns 

Christa of SecretJewelry and Kat of AeliosDesign

Angie's sign - it sure drew a lot of attention!

Jackie of BranchesandFeathers 

And finally,my table Periwinkle Designs.

Many thanks to the group for all the great organization, support and just plain laughs we had all weekend--couldn't have survived it with out you! ~Ruth
