While the weather is great in Shuswap, the smoke today is tending to put a damper on the typical outdoor activities. Thankfully a drive in a air filtered air-conditioned car is not out of the question. Great time to take family and visitors to the great artisan markets in the neighbourhood. Today’s feature artisan market is the “Reedman Gallery Artisan Collaborative” right in the Shuswap, in the Reedman Gallery in Blind Bay Hall. This is right across from Sandy Beach just off of Blind Bay Road. A stroll through the market is just the thing that can lift one’s spirits from the smoky exterior going on right now!

One of my favourite things about the Shuswap is all the artisan markets that are available during the summer. Besides all the natural beauty all around you in the Shuswap, a stroll in an air-conditioned artisan market depicting beautiful paintings, jewelry, woodworks, leatherwork, pottery, fiberart, repurposed beachy furniture and so much more, is certainly a feast for the eyes and soul. We have a lot of very talented artists and artisans in the Shuswap so the work is of top quality and so creative! We all learn from and inspire each other! Today’s feature artisan market is “Shuswap Artisan Market” in Sorrento! This market has over 22 artisans with a large variety of art and artisan works. This week (July 22-30th) they are showcasing “Christmas in July”, so pop by and get your Christmas shopping done early! It’s located in Sorrento right beside the Lighthouse Market on the TransCanada Hwy (1245 TCH).
