The Medieval Market committee is excited to welcome 22 new vendors to the market this year bringing the total number of vendors to more than 60.

Scott Goertz of Scott’s Got Wood will bring hand-made wooden boxes and chests.

Sue Wolf of Vintage Soul makes handmade vintage ornaments.

Stacy Sullivan produces Lucky Rocks, and Teresa Trim makes soaps, creams and lotions Just 4 U.

We have two new lines of leather products this year.

Darcy Luttmer and Colleen Murphy of Luttmer Leatherworks produce saddles, braided leather collars, and chaps.

Ernie Goerzen of Blue Rose Custom Hobby Leather Work hails from Clinton and produces colourful hand-tooled guitar straps, belts, bracelets, and rings.

Howard Linde will be bringing his new line of wood flooring.

Bonnie Brisbin of Pane in the Glass produces kiln-formed glass products.

Laura Hills from Quesnel produces a wide range of gemstone jewellery, and Michele Edge of Lil Bear Stitches makes stick horses, shopping cart covers, lawn chair covers, and bags.

The talented Jacqueline Lahaise, lover of loud laughs, pearl earrings, crème brulee, making lists, small country towns, honest conversation, and people, is a graduate of Columneetza Secondary and comes to us via the Debbie Travis show, From the Ground Up.

Lahaise is currently employed by School District 27. Her company, Love Jac, makes personalized specialty stamps.

You can connect with your angels through Wendy Edginton of Due North Wellness and her Angel Card readings.

Cary Burnett is joining longtime Medieval Marketer Bev Pemberton this year in selling her pottery.

Johannes Hoelderl graduated from Williams Lake Secondary School in 2007 and produces original artwork.

Britney Careless will fill the lobby of the market with the aroma of fresh wreaths and garlands.

Bill James is bringing birdhouses and other products made from recycled wood. Kathy Provost makes herbal products.

Ken Sheen, the guy who carved our local landmark sculptures at the Y-intersection, is bringing hand-carved and painted Old World Santas and trees.

They range in height from two to four feet and look amazing next to a fireplace or outside as a greeting.

And all the way from Dundarave in West Vancouver comes Pia Boleslawsky and her array of stuffed olives, black olive jam, cold-pressed fruit-flavoured olive oils, smoked olive oil, fruit balsamic vinegars, and chocolate balsamic vinegar (which is apparently delicious on ice cream!).

My mouth is watering already!

Corky Williams, Victoria Greenley and Shannon Sim are all authors.

Corky’s book, co-authored with Sage Birchwater, is a wild account of his life in the West Chilcotin, replete with explosions, grizzly bears, hoards of mosquitoes, and many other challenges.

Corky will be entertaining us with some of his stories at 1:30 and 2:30 p.m. each day in the lunch room.

Children’s book, I Don’t Like My Grumpy Face, is the work of local author, Victoria Greenley, and illustrator, Raylene Hale.

Both women work for School District 27 and have produced a book that teaches us that we can adjust our mindsets to be positive and that we feel better when we do so.

Hmm…I can think of a few people who should read this book!  Shannon Sim’s first book is called Keeping It Real.

Shannon was raised in the remote community of Tatlayoko in the Chilcotin and gains her inspiration from that all-inspiring pristine wilderness.

A self-published book with breathtaking photographs and poetry that comes from the heart, this is the perfect gift that will touch your soul.

So please join us at the Medieval Market Nov. 23 and 24 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. at Columneetza.

The three dollar admission brings you a weekend of visiting, shopping, great food, and amazing entertainment.
