Opening Day of the Harbourview Weekend Market!

>> Saturday, July 11, 2009

Today was the first day of Dartmouth's new weekend market and what a response. I just couldn't believe the crowds - there was nearly no parking left when I arrived within the first hour of the market opening. All the more remarkable since the Grand Opening isn't until August.

You can check out the Harborview Weekend Market's website as well as their Flickr slideshow for more pictures and details. The Bead Sisterhood features prominently under the Vendors section of their website.

Some of the vendors are still not quite ready. There are also a few empty booths but with time, I believe the market will grow and be an important part of this community like the Farmer's Market in Halifax. As this is a covered market, the stalls can be open year round. Admission is free on Saturdays and a small fee of $1 on Sundays.

And here is the Sisters Too! booth. Like many vendors, Bonnie and Cindy are still stocking and labelling. The sign was misspelt so it is currently missing in action whilst a new one is made. The picture below show Bonnie arranging our jewelry.

Here is another of a very happy Cindy!


The Sisters Too Booth takes shape

Both Bonnie and Cindy have been working hard on their "Sisters Too" booth with the help of their significant others. They are pictured below wielding tools not usually held by jewelry artisans!

Careful you don't fall off, Cindy!

The booth's nearly ready so tune in for the big reveal!


Our Jewelry at the new Harbourview Market

>> Wednesday, July 8, 2009

Cindy and Bonnie are so excited! They are about to open up a stall at the new Harbourview Weekend Market off Portland Street in Dartmouth starting this Saturday and Sunday from 9- 5 pm. Jewelry from the Bead Sisterhood will naturally fill the display! The booth is under construction at the time of writing so the photo above is actually from another craft show we did.

At that craft show, people really liked what we did and asked us if we had a store. We didn't at the time. Then we opened our online store. Now we will be able to tell everyone we have a local store where they can purchase our jewelry.

Stay tuned for more updates!
