Family Day Sales

February 14th, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

We just released our latest newsletter #49:

I have not posted much on facebook or our blog, since the new year. We have been busy going to trade shows and meeting artists, preparing for this year`s refreshing of the store and our lines. I will show you the new pieces as they come into stock.

One of the problems about bringing in new things is that we have to decide what to get rid of, to free up space. Sadly at this time our systems are not sophisticated enough to get these items online at sale prices.

However for those of you planning to come to Banff in the near future we have loads of sale lines, mostly at 50% off to move them along quickly. Among the lines on sale are prints (loads of them), moccasins, hats, jewellery and more. Get in soon because, as they say, you snooze you lose.

This weekend is Family Day in Alberta and it is going to be mild after all the cold and snow of the last couple of weeks. So it should be a great weekend to visit. Being Family Day I thought it might be a chance to show you some family related items that I thought you might like, just three this time.

For your information

Family Day, also called Louis Riel Day (Manitoba), Islander Day (PEI) is observed by Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan and falls on the third Monday in February, except BC.

Family Day is a fairly recent holiday it was first celebrated in Alberta in 1990. Alberta was the only province in Canada to have a statutory holiday in February, until it was proposed in Saskatchewan beginning in 2007.

The holiday was proclaimed by Lieutenant Governor Helen Hunley, on the advice of her premier, Don Getty. Premier Getty said it was important for all Albertans to take time for their families and this holiday would emphasize the importance of family values.

The day is known as Louis Riel Day, a name suggested by Manitoba school students, in honour of Louis Riel, the M├ętis leader regarded as the Father of Manitoba.

The provincial government of Prince Edward Island introduced Islander Day first in 2009 due to the rising trend of a holiday in February.

The holiday coincides with the U.S.A President`s Day on the third Monday.
