secret business : Knitting and Beyond

Knitting and Beyond

Knitting and Beyond first came to my attention at Vitality Body & Mind. A basket of bright coloured knitted products was sitting there by the front door and I had to have a closer look. Knitting and Beyond makes a few different products, including: Long socks, short socks, toeless heelless socks, flip flop socks and bags to carry your yoga mat or foam roller.

kettle black bartending - elk valley and surrounding area

Kettle Black Bartending

KBB is located in Fernie but they’re interested in serving Elk Valley and the surrounding area. I discovered their business while browsing the ourfernie classifieds and the logo really stood out to me…and they sound like a fun company. Check out their facebook page if you’re hosting an event in the area and need someone to take care of the bar.

Secret Businesses aren’t very secret, they’re just new to me and I’m passing on the information like a good blogger.

How cool is this little company?! The Valley Social is updating an old boler camper for their mobile coffee company. I love it! I hope they park at the north end of 8th Ave this summer. I know my neighbour would also be into it.

Secret Business : Crumbs Cakery & Cafe

Crumbs Cakery & Cafe in Fernie BC - Opening Soon

Well, this excites me! Crumbs Cakery & Cafe is opening up downtown Fernie very soon (if not already…I haven’t been downtown in a few days). It’s a good thing I started running and taking Pilates classes.

The craziest part of this business is the owner has 4 kids! I can barely find time to paint with my own 2 kids, let alone run a business. Amy is my hero.
