Off to market this week

Come see me at a vendor market this week! I’ll be at the 2022 ISU International Adult Figure Skating Competition right here in Ottawa from September 22 to 24, 2022.

Not only will you get to see, try on, and purchase my COKANNA bamboo clothing in person, you can also take in some amazing adult figure skating. Competitors are flying in from around the world!


My skating club, the Rideau Skating Club, is hosting this world class event and I was invited to be a vendor. It’s been a long time since I’ve participated in a market. And, a long time since I’ve been at a live skating competition. I’m super excited!


It’s at the Bob MacQuarrie Recreation Complex at 1490 Youville Drive in Orleans. There is no charge for spectators or shoppers. So come and watch some spectacular skating and get a little shopping in at the same time.

Both of these talented ladies love my bamboo leggings. They each own 2 pairs.


Come find me up on the 2nd floor on Thursday, Friday & Saturday between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm. Come and say hi. I’ll have my bamboo leggings, lounge pants, curvy size pocket pants, and cardi-robes. My Maxine reversible tanks and Carolyn reversible dresses will be on sale for 30% off. And grab a warm and cozy bamboo toque with your choice of removable recycled fur pompom. It’s buy a toque, pick your pompom.

I look forward to seeing you there. And btw, I’m not competing!

Until next time
