Rare Threads re-opens with new lines.

July 03, 2020

Rare Threads, the fibre design and fashion market at the mill, has re-opened with a revamped line-up of vendors, some continuing, some new. To keep things interesting and ever-changing, Rare Threads will also feature monthly pop-up vendors offering a variety of artisan fashions and decor. A formal grand re-opening / fashion show will be announced once larger gatherings are permitted, but don't wait to see their new offerings - we have stringent COVID safety guidelines in place.

New vendors include, Gosia Eco Designs in fine fabrics handmade and hand dyed naturally with leaves and flowers, Lil Tree & Me, artisanal children's clothing and toys and Michele Taras limited edition, comfortable, colourful, fun fashions. Just before we closed due to the pandemic, we had introduced Hides In Hand Canadian handcrafted leatherware. Their newly-expanded offering includes handcrafted designer face coverings. Other vendors have re-supplied with seasonal merchandise.
