Hello! Christmas is on its way, and this is the time of year when Wild Waters is usually very busy preparing for the Holiday Market Season. Like many small local businesses, this season is crucial to our survival. However, this year, even the markets that are happening (if they actually do) don't look very safe to some folks. So, we have been looking at some options to help you find wonderful local gifts from a multitude of talented makers in one space. Read on to learn more!
We are doing three different Virtual Markets!
Have you participated in a virtual market yet? We have done a few. They range from as simple as the Not Yo' Mama's Winter Market, and the JCC Virtual Hanukkah Market--a page full of great vendors that links back to each maker's website, to setups as complex as the Craft Lake city summer market. What they all have in common? You can find great local Vendors in one place.
Head over to Not Yo' Mama's to find 30 awesome vendors who have in common a passion to be sustainable. You will find glass art, textiles, paintings Jewelry and mixed media. And you will find us on the bottom, 'cause it's all alphabetical!
The Hannukkah Markewon't open until November 16, but it will have another great selection of awesome local vendors, including our friends at Funky Oats. It will work a lot like the Not Yo' Mama's market, so cruise on over to the I.J. and Jeanne Wagner Jewish Community Center website and check it out!
Here is yet another resource full of local vendors-- or at least soon to be full. They are just getting rolling. This is a local Facebook group, Virtual Holiday Boutique, so you will have to be on Facebook, and join the group to see it, but its another fun way to shop local and safe!
Check it out! you can now buy a variety of goodies at Ruff Haven, including our pet soaps and pet friendly Lavender and Wintergreen shower steamers. All proceeds go directly to support their work keeping people in crisis and their pets together. You can find them inside "Dogs all Day" doggy day care and grooming shop at 1370 South 400 West. Right now, you can hop on over to Facebook and read some stories about the great work they do. And don't forget that a percentage of all you spend with us goes to support their work.
