Was kind of exciting today to get to check out what must be the largest craft sale in Yellowknife. The annual Elks Hall Sale happened a couple weeks earlier than normal and of course my mother had a couple table. Having a love of customer service and retail I helped out behind the table.
I must first say my mother’s Jams are well known in this town. I have never seen a product sell so fast at craft sale and had so many people come up to be saying how much they wanted it and have been waiting. It is funny how after doing craft sales in Yellowknife for 15 years she has really grown a name for herself as the Jam Lady. Each year it seems she makes more and more, different types and more variety, and each year it seems to sell quicker and quicker. I mustn’t forget to mention she also sells out at garage sales throughout the summer. I have been trying to convince her to open an online store or at least take orders.
Now on to the rest of the folks there. There are some really creative people in this town. More jams, baking, knitting, art, painting, etc. It is cool to see and I’m proud.
