It's hard to believe we're already mid-November and heading into full blown Holiday mode here in Downtown Abbotsford! The last couple of months have been FULL but we've been feeling inspired creatively and have some exciting projects and events coming in the near future. Here's a little glimpse of what's been happening in our world this week and don't forget that you can follow each of our "branches" daily on social media too!
Both of our locations are all decked out for the Holidays and we've got a selection of handpicked new, vintage and handmade ornaments and home goods ready to inspire you for the season of giving ahead! Looking to give gifts from the heart? They're always a win and we've got some fabulous ideas to help you out...
Our workshops + classes (like this upcoming wreath class by Kari of Confetti Floral) have been extremely popular over the past few weeks and you can see the entire schedule on our website (CLICK HERE). Have an idea for a class or feel confident in teaching a skill to others? Give us a shout! We're eager to get creative workshops lined up for the New Year and are open to ideas.
One of our favourite local jewellers, Jen Ellis Designs, is working with us to offer a selection of customizable necklaces and rings just in time for Christmas. Samples are as shown and can be viewed in store. Pre-order your custom initials, monogram or name by December 13th and wow that special someone. A truly personal gift to be worn year 'round! Sterling silver and 14k gold fill.
Our second location, The Market by Spruce Collective, has been bustling and we've added several more vendors to the mix. You can see a list of them on our website here but you'll want to see their constant stream of vintage treasures up close and personal so be sure to pop in and say hello next time you're in the neighbourhood! The Market is open 10-4 Monday - Saturday and our LOFT has a few dates available for your upcoming Christmas parties too. See venue + pricing information on our rental website (CLICK HERE) along with our entire collection of vintage rentals.
Colleen Sawatsky of Vintage Home will be hosting A Downtown Christmas in our LOFT space on Saturday, November 28th. You won't want to miss out on the nostalgic selection of vintage and handmade goods that will be available in addition to our full-time Market vendors. CLICK HERE for more information.
We've got even more exciting plans in the works, including a fun evening shopping event with other Downtown businesses that we'll be announcing very soon...be sure to stay tuned for details! Thank you for continuing to support our little shop and for shopping local this season and throughout the year. We appreciate it ever so much! ~ the Spruce Girls
