Why not shop local for unique gifts for Mother’s Day – or for any special occasion?

The curated artisan market features the work of 20 high caliber artisans and includes fine jewelry, pottery, glasswork, visual arts, fibre arts, and natural and herbal products.

In addition to shopping you can meet the artisans and get a chance to win gift baskets. If that was not enough incentive to attend, the first 50 people will receive a complimentary gift.

The Willow Spring Artisan Facebook page highlights some of the artisans you will meet including PAX Jewellery Design…

Sadly, Douro’s historic General Store was destroyed by fire in February 2018. The store operated for 124 years until it closed in 2016. The building was reborn in 2017 as sections were removed and used to create the Towns & Leahy Mercantile and Deli. The May 6th event was created to support the ‘shop local’ spirit generated by the Towns & Leahy Mercantile and Deli.

Proceeds from the $2 entrance fee will be donated to the Douro-Dummer Firefighters Association. The fire services lost precious equipment during their fight to deal with fire.

You can shop at the Willow Spring Artisan Show on Sunday, May 6th at the St. Joseph Parish Hall in Douro between 10:30 and 3 pm.
