• Happy Halloween!

    Happy Halloween! We're all in amazement by how fast the last six weeks have flown by and can't believe that it's the end of October already! If you live locally, be sure to bring the kids down to Historic Downtown Abbotsford for trick-or-treating between 1-5pm and don't forget your umbrellas! It's been a while since we've touched base so here's a little glimpse of the last week or so at Spruce Collective... New product has been arriving almost daily in preparation for the holidays and we are really excited to have Vancouver-made Feest candles now in store as well as new wood cutouts by Kimberley at Local Grain. Perfect for Fall, don't you think? It's easy to get creative in our workshop and here's a look at two gorgeous chairs that Jessica's been working on for our vintage rentals. Painted with CeCe Caldwell's chalk paint and well on their way to being reupholstered with fresh ticking and we'll be sure to share the after pics later this week. We are excited to say that an upholstery class will be added to the schedule very soon...stay tuned! We had our first furniture painting and distressing class on the weekend and it was such a fun and inspiring day! It's always fun to get together in a creative group and students learned the basics of layering, distressing and waxing furniture using CeCe Caldwell's chalk + clay paints. We can't wait to see what they've been working on at home since! Next painting class is coming up on November 17th from 10:30-3:30. Another fun class was Leanna's DIY Painted Mug workshop. Here's a colourful example using Pebeo Porcelaine paint pens...so cute, right? She has another coming up later in November and be sure to check out the rest of our classroom lineup here. Next up this week is Jewellery Making with Rochelle on Saturday from 10-3pm. Call 604-855-0506 to book your spot today. In the hustle and bustle of the past weeks since we opened, we somehow neglected to share any of the photos taken of us by the lovely Cristal Sawatzky across the street at Level6 so, voila, here we are! From left to right: Monica Klein, Elisa Robertson, Jessica MacDonald, Lily Ellis and Kevi Zupancic. Nice to meet you and, yes, we are all still smiling and getting along...thanks for asking ;)

    We'll be closed all day Friday to decorated the shop for Christmas (fa-la-la-la-la!) so be sure to pop by this weekend to see our winter wonderland. See you soon! ~the Spruce girls
