Let me give you a little insight into these small town treasures.
Crab Apple Cottage, a local boutique, is filled with an amazing selection of women’s clothing stocked carefully from selected international labels, as well as our in-house designed brand, Barclay Clothing Collection. The staff is very helpful and you won’t leave empty handed. The shop has a small town feel and full of trendy European fashion finds. Some of last summers collection is featured here (sorry, I don’t have any fall fashions to show you, but it is filled with cool plaids, wools and button up shirts with casual pants – just love this years collection! I did not leave empty handed ;))
Stone Willow jewellery has just arrived in the Bragg Creek Boutique. The selection ranges from leather wrap bracelets, long amethyst slice necklaces and fringe style gemstone necklaces as well as a collection of sterling silver earrings. How they describe it and I feel the same – a natural yet edgy style.
Market Junction is a hidden treasure in the Alberta town of Cremona – approx 30 mins north of Cochrane. Here you will find a “from scratch” bakery/cafe surrounded by country style handmade and antique finds from local small businesses or vendors. If you are looking to browse or purchase antique items or spruce up your house with some interesting decorating ideas, this would be the place to look. And why not take a nice drive through the country side of rolling hills in Alberta to get there;)
Here are a few images of the Market Junction market area. Each section is rented by various local artists/vendors to display and sell their treasures. My vote on the best place to find one of a kind items.
Here at Market Junction, you will find Stone Willow pieces displayed in a glass cabinet right in front of you as you walk in the door. I brought a large selection of leather bracelets, gemstone earrings and some necklaces. A sneak peek at some of the items are pictured here:
I am excited to see how these new business partnerships develop.
Please let me know what you think if you have the time to take a look at these great hidden gems of small town Alberta.
