5 seasonally spectacular Indigenous businesses around Nanaimo – The Discourse.
December 6, 2022
Ay Lelum’s pop-up Christmas market will feature Nanaimo-region favourites. This gifting season, don’t miss these local Indigenous businesses.
Shopping local has become a regular holiday call, a way to show the talented artists and entrepreneurs in your area some extra love. Pop-up markets and small business networks are eager to share spaces and give back.
Sophia Seward-Good, co-director of Ay Lelum – The Good House of Design, tells The Discourse, “When you support Indigenous businesses you’re supporting more than just a business itself. You’re supporting the family, the cultural and knowledge preservation and also the sharing of knowledge. So, you get a lot more exchange happening than just monetary.”
Ay Lelum will host a pop-up Christmas market on Dec. 10 and 11 at their newly opened studio and culture centre on 1380B Raines Rd. The event hosts Indigenous and non-Indigenous creators they’ve collaborated with over the years.
