Get ready to feel those heartstrings.
There’s a little hutch at the side of the road in Summerland, British Columbia full of handmade goodies you can browse, and purchase, at your leisure. Got a question? Want to see more? Need to break a 20 dollar bill? Just call up to the house, Pam will help you out.
Oh yes. This is real.
On our recent trip out West (more on that soon!) my Mum and I spent a night in Summerland AKA heaven on earth AKA an Airbnb in the Okanagan Valley on an orchard lined street that happens to be across from a sheep farm. *deep breath*
The next morning we head out for a walk (obviously I had to check out these sheep) and see a sign that says “Kiosk open” near the farms driveway.
We follow the sign and there is it, an honest to goodness kiosk.
As you can imagine we’re not-so-silently freeking out at this point.
We unlatch it to find carefully displayed jewellery and bins of felted goodies (all made with wool from their sheep, naturally).
And a cash box. Look at the cash box!
So special. The trust! You really can’t make this stuff up.
It’s called Yuranga Farm Summerland, in case you’re ever in the neighbourhood and want to pop by. And if you do, make sure you go to The Beanery in town for coffee and treats and True Grain Bread for more treats.
I’ll leave you with a few more snaps from our walk that morning, because I know you’re curious about this place called Summerland…
Go ahead, book your flights.
