The Littlest Wood Shop at Blim Market
Julie is an artist, gardener and woodworking diva/instructor who has started her own business. This weekend she brought her lovely wares to the Blim Market.
Goddesses on the roll for the child who has everything! Julie now has an etsy shop so you can buy her products on line. They are made right here in a shop in east Vancouver. And yes, it is tiny, I've seen it!
I love this little vintage style rocking chair pin cushion and thread holder. Julie is also a fabulous quilter and fabric artist.
The toys are finished with beeswax and Julie is making a line of toys specifically for a form of art therapy. She also has a line of wooden moustaches.
We bought a jar of beeswax wood finish. Julie says you can even use it on your hands to help with dry skin. Or you can use it to condition your wooden moustache!
Michael from Open Sesame was at the Blim Market as well and he made three kinds of byriani and all these wonderful toppings including: tamarind chutney, onions and shallots, grated carrots, sliced almonds, cilantro and mango raita.
