What is the Nanaimo2Vancouver SUP team? 

We have a group of stand up paddleboard (aka SUP) friends who could be described as a little bit brave / a little bit crazy. They are paddling an incredible 70km across the open ocean from Nanaimo to Vancouver this Sunday, June 29th to raise money for Ruben's Shoes! We will be on site to wait for their arrival and to communicate between the paddlers themselves and the coast guard to ensure everyone is safe during their journey.

What is Ruben's Shoes?

Ruben's Shoes is a very special charity that collects gently used shoes for children in the Dominican Republic. Founder, Kelly Strongitharm was inspired by a little boy named Ruben on a trip to the Dominican. Since then she has collected thousands of pairs of shoes for the people of the Dominican, ultimately helping children go to school. She is changing lives! You may remember last year when we donated 20% of our new design sales to Ruben's Shoes.

Again, Bidding starts at just $5 and 100% will go to Ruben's Shoes!

From Our Blog

We're retiring from shows plus, a shipping update

The title says it all, and it's true. It's time, and it feels right. After 14 seasons, we have decided it's time to wrap up the Craft Show and Christmas Market chapter in our lives and really start to enjoy the holidays. Our kids are getting older and through the years we have loved doing these shows, but the only downside it that it has also meant being away from our kids for a few weeks and for a very fast paced December served with a side of exhaustion for us all.
