Something very exciting is coming.
AND IT’S COMING TOMORROW!
Do you remember Amy? Number 150.
A beautiful human being.
Such loss had Amy at the bottom of a well, saturated with grief and unsure how to climb out. Amy has spent the past few years crawling out of the well and is presently in a position where she feels happy and productive.
Healing from trauma and loss often means learning how to function and feel joy while coexisting with pain. Amy is an inspiration because has done just that. She keeps her mother and infant son in her heart while continuing to care for her daughter, son, and husband. Part of Amy’s healing journey involved channeling energy into creating art.
This is how Olives and Bananas was born.
A lovely little home based business full of yarn and felting and crochet; commissions and workshops; the most beautifully luxurious wool known to mankind!
Amy is so talented and her work is perfection. It’s soft and quaint and adorable and meaningful.
Amy has huge news for the people of downtown Port Arthur AND Thunder Bay.
Olives and Bananas has expanded! From the living room and the online world to 49 South Cumberland Street!
An actual brick and mortar location.
I took pictures of what I saw last week and I’m going to share them now! Then I’m going to go back to the store next week and take more pictures. And I’ll share those too!
So many pictures!
This beautiful store will hopefully grow and prosper and become a landmark of creativity and joy for Thunder Bay.
