I’m writing this post from my mother-in-law’s house in Chicago, where my family and I are celebrating US Thanksgiving. I love this time of year – for me, it marks the beginning of the holiday season.
We at Delish General Store have gotten a start on our holidays with two wonderful Christmas markets in the past few weeks. The event at Minter Gardens was great, with a nice introduction of our goodies to the people of Chilliwack and area, and last weekend’s Olde Farmhouse Christmas Vintage Christmas market was just awesome! (A big shout out to all of the new Delish General Store fans from there!)
If you are in the Lower Mainland and can make it out to Abbotsford on Saturday, there’s a real treat in this Saturday’s Poplar Market!
“Poplar Market is a one day, pop up style market featuring local artisans, bringing only the best in high quality handmade and vintage products. This exciting event will take place at the Abbotsford School of Integrated Arts (ASIA) North Poplar Campus. Poplar Market is also a fundraising event for the students of ASIA North Poplar helping to foster a new generation of talented artists. This will include a Scholastic Book Fair, Door Prizes, a hardy menu from our PAC kitchen as well as live music.”
Who will be there?

I met Kelly Keleman, the organizer of Poplar Market, last weekend and I am positive that Abbotsford is in for the best event it has hosted yet. Kelly is stylish, enthusiastic and full of energy, and I was impressed with the plans she shared with me. I wish I could be there!
Make sure to go and visit my sister Tanya, aka the Booth Babe, at our Delish General Store booth. We will have the entire Weck selection at the booth, some new Christmas (green, red and white), Peppermint (red, pink and white) and solid colored baker’s twine, Christmas striped and dotted paper straws, as well as a few new jar toppers and other goodies!
Make everything with love,
