Artisan began in June 1988 when Trail's Economic Action Committee was working to improve the local economy. Local craftspeople were brought together to start a member run consignment craft shop, which has been going strong ever since. Their membership has varied over the years, but they are dedicated to providing the community with a wide variety of quality handcrafted gifts. They still have 2 working members who were with Artisan when it started, and one member who joined shortly afterwards. At present they have 10 working members.
If you are looking for locally made handicrafts, including pottery, jewelry, jams, soaps, candles, photos, books, and many other items, then stop by the store. Each of the crafters is located here in the Kootenays and produce top quality products for your home or for gift giving.
