What are the Odds?

This Saturday I was doing a show in Herbert, Saskatchewan. Same place as I did my very successful Highway 1 Studio Tour earlier in the fall. The town itself is small with about 740 people in it but so far they all seem to be NICE people. I noticed one odd thing though – at this one show in the middle of nowhere Saskatchewan there were five different Etsy shops represented.


Mine. Ignore the lopsided green cloth, by the time I saw it everything was setup and there was no way to straighten it.

Wood River Creations

Wood River Creations
makes nifty wooden jewelry. She’s from Gravelbourg, somewhere not too far I’m told. My Saskatchewan geography is still lacking.

Cindys Creative Crochet

This is my bud Cindy crocheting away madly.

New Leaf Handmade

These guys
are actually two sisters from Herbert. I’m considering the pillow covers for my daughters pillows instead of sewing my own. I know, pillows are not exactly brain surgery to cover but… yeah.

Pixie Dust Homemade

This shop is actually another pair of sisters, cousins to New Leaf. They’re just getting going on Etsy with a selection of jewelry, crochet and small painted handcrafts.

So, I ask, what are the odds of finding five of us in one spot?


  1. That’s too funny Elaine! I would never have guessed there would be so many Etsians in one small location like that. Hope you did well at the show. (Your booth, despite the crooked cloth, looked the best BTW. Those trees look awesome!)

    The new display set up is fabulous. It really is a polished look and extremely inviting. Cheers for Elaine.
