Ever since I had Little C almost 6 years ago, I caught the Handmade Baby Stuff Bug. There is something beautiful and special about making things with love for your littles. Handmade baby products are more unique than mass produced ones, and they’re often higher quality so that they can be passed down as sentimental heirlooms.
If you’re not a crafty maven or don’t have the time to make things for your new little one, there are so many talented mammas and artisans that can make special things for you. And do you know what else is wonderful? If you buy handmade and locally made things, you’re supporting moms and families like yourself! I love that thought.
Five years ago, I had an idea and I met a new friend that had the same one. The idea was WeeStock and the friend was Leah of Whimsical Elements. We wanted to produce a baby show that was unlike others that we’d seen. We wanted it to celebrate handmade, local, organic and fair trade products and services for babies. In 2010, we hosted our first show and it was a huge success. I think the attendance and buzz surprised the both of us!
This year, we’re hosting our 7th WeeStock.
WeeStock 2014, WeeStock’s 7th show, is taking place on October 11, 2014 at the beautiful new Pavilion at Heritage Park in Stony Plain, the event will feature vendors from all over Alberta that specialize in handmade, organic, natural, fair trade and unique & original goodies for babies, toddlers, new mommies, and mommies-to-be.
After you snuggle your baby in a trial carrier at our Stroller Check by Natural Urban Mamas & Cosy Baby Happy Mommy, take a tour around our shopping area for unique finds. You can then relax with your baby, and feed & change him in our Mommy Lounge area sponsored by Time Out Beauty Retreat. Get your Christmas shopping done, prepare for Baby coming soon, or find unique and beautiful gifts for your new mommy friends.
