Today is the last day for my #shoplocal feature, I can’t believe it’s the end of November already! I truly hope you’ve enjoyed the vendors and shops shared for the past 25 days as much as I’ve loved putting them together for you. Please leave me a comment below if it’s something you think I should do again, I love hearing your feedback! Tomorrow I’ll have a recap post of the past month so it’ll be all in one place for your Christmas shopping convenience.
Because there’s so many great shops, artisans and authors and not enough time to write about them all, for the last post I’ve got huge lineup of great vendors for you at the Leduc Artisan Market.
With well over 20 vendors on display, the items range from baby goods and homemade soaps to barn wood picture frames and locally written and published books (there’s more than 40 authors). There’s even bottles of sparkling fruit juice made right in BC! Local pottery, handmade soaps and personal care products and Christmas decor can all be found there too.
A big part of the market is Restore and Renew furniture reinvention. Working with the full line of FUSION™ Mineral Paint, Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint and Homestead House Milk Paint (all of which is manufactured in Canada by Homestead House Paint Company), it’s a place where you can take your old, tired furniture and have it redone into something new and exciting. If you’d rather DIY, a full line of each along with brushes, stencils and waxes are all available for purchase.
Donna started the market in 2013 with a partner and it grew so quickly she has since taken control of the entire shop. With a wide range of products, she screens all the vendors that are interested in showcasing their talents to ensure no two businesses are alike.
Click any of the links below to check out what each business is about and find their contact information. If you don’t see what you want on their pages, there might be something unique on display at the market and a lot of them take custom order as well.

She’s normally open Tuesday to Friday 10-6 and Saturdays 10-4 but has extended holiday hours for the month of December. Monday to Wednesday and Fridays from 10-6, Thursdays 10-8, Saturdays from 10-4 and they’ll be open Christmas Eve from 10-2. After that, they’re closed until we ring in 2016. Located at 5110-50 Street, be sure to stop in and browse the aisles because the selection and range of art on display is completely one-of-a-kind; it really is a gem in the heart of Leduc.
Check back tomorrow for the recap post and know that I am truly grateful for all my readers and followers, I hope I’ve opened your eyes to the local market this year. Think outside the big box and #shoplocal, we appreciate your business so much!
A NOTE TO MY READERS: I want to reiterate that every one of these shops and artists have been selected by me to participate in my #shoplocal campaign. I am receiving NO GRATUITIES OR FREEBIES for these shout outs and want to keep it that way! I love all these places and what they offer and am sharing them to make my readers lives easier and promote local shopping in my area.
