Open Space Yoga will once again be hosting its Shopping Day for Hospice.
Set for Saturday, Nov. 17from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., the 11th annual event will see a portion of all sales donated to the Delta Hospice Society.
Every year, Open Space invites local artisans, jewelry makers and food vendors to participate. All vendors donate 20 per cent of their sales to the society, except for Potters for Hospice and Central Avenue Publishing, who donate 100 per cent of their sales.
Shoppers will find beautiful handmade pottery, new books at half price, boxes of Rose’s Shortbread, Lara Cuisine’s baklava, spice mixes from Epicure, and cookies, squares and ready-made comfort food from Batch Food.
There will also be yoga-inspired jewelry from Sonja Picard and Charlotte Munn, lotions and soaps from Saltspring Soapworks, and Open Space will have new yoga T-shirts and tank tops for sale.
New this year, Batch Food will be raffling off an oven-ready Christmas dinner for eight, featuring sage-butter-rubbed turkey with stuffing, gravy and sides, capped off by warm ginger cake with toffee sauce.
J. Baird Cattle Co. will offer sample platters of its house-made sausage with an invitation to visit its Ladner farm store at 5802 River Rd. where it will donate 20 per cent of the day’s sales. Ladner Artisan Chocolates has also donated a basket of chocolatey goodness that will be raffled off.
“Open Space Yoga has continued to show such generosity towards hospice through this event each year,” says Delta Hospice executive director Nancy Macey. “They do a first-class job of bringing the community together in a welcoming environment with interesting vendors. We are very proud to be associated.”
Open Space Yoga is located at 4880 Delta St. in Ladner Village.
