It's the largest craft fair of the year this weekend

Meet Inga Toews, one of this year's first-time vendors.

Former BICS student and local business owner Inga Toews,has been a Bowen Island resident since 1977.

After attending the CSA Christmas Craft Fair almost every year since it started and finding so many local gems and one-of-a-kind gifts for friends, Inga wanted in on the holiday cheer.

This will be Inga’s first year as a vendor at the 34th Annual CSA Christmas Craft Fair.

The craft fair offers such a diverse sampling of Bowen’s many styles of artists and crafters and Inga feels that her wreaths and centrepieces will fit in very well with the many wonderfully crafted items available at the other tables.  She will be selling wreaths, centrepieces and swag all made with fresh greenery and all handmade on Bowen Island.  Inga will have a range of gifts for sale for between $10 and $40. Christmas has always been a very special holiday for Inga’s family, both as a child herself and now with her own children.

The excitement of the lead up to Christmas as well as the season of giving and the joy of celebrating with everyone is why Christmas is the Toews’ favourite time of the year.  Making homemade gifts for friends and family has always been a big part of their family tradition. 

The CSA Christmas Craft Fair is where beautiful handmade gifts can be found by so many talented artists and crafters, children included.  Inga is excited to be a part of such a great island and Christmas tradition.  Make sure you visit Inga’s table at the CSA Christmas Craft Fair on Sunday, December 1, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the BICS gym.
