Numerous small businesses from Langley will be showcasing their best goods at the 16th annual West Coast Women’s Show at the Tradex Trade & Exhibition Centre in Abbotsford Oct. 21 to 23.
Fraser Valley women can get a start on their holiday shopping finding exclusive products, services and gifts with more than 100 Red Tag Show specials across 400-plus booths this year.
Some of the top exhibitors from Langley are All of Oils, which is one of the show’s most sought after exhibitors. All of Oils has a tasting room right in Langley City on 20450 Douglas Crescent.
It is this husband and wife team Glenn Pineau and Kimm Brickman’s third time at the show and they will be bringing their flavored oils and many gift packages, ready to go for visitors to the show.
“The flavoured oils are a big hit and we’ve got lots of them packaged really nice, ready to be given as gifts,” said Pineau.
All of Oils has been in Langley City offering their amazing extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegars and more, for around two years. But their first tasting room is in South Surrey. They just opened another store in Abbotsford.
Also at the women’s show will be Langley’s Beaver Dam Creative Carpentry, Checkers Premium Fudge, Marie’s Guilt Free Bakery, Naked Teas Galore, Nats Nifty Nest and BC Buzz honey, to name a few.
The Show’s entertainment includes celebrity speakers, fashion shows, Girls Night Out featuring the infamous Calendar Firefighters Fashion Show, cooking demonstrations, wellness and beauty demonstrations, nutrition experts, and more.
Personal Safety Expert Kathleen Baty, better known as “The Safety Chick” will present a Mother/Daughter Safety Chick Chat and soap star Sharon Case of The Young and the Restless will be sharing her story on the Main Stage. With speakers and presentations across five stages, the show is packed with experts and entertainment.
“It’s a thrill to be celebrating 16 years of the West Coast Women’s Show. Due to last year’s popularity we’ve doubled the size of the Artisan’s Marketplace this year which I’m really excited about,” shares Murat Olcay, Show Producer of the West Coast Women’s Show.
“Show visitors will have a unique chance to experience and shop at over 400 booths with artisans and vendors coming from B.C., Alberta, Quebec, Ontario, Nova Scotia, Washington, Illinois and even from as far away as South Africa.”
Show themes include fashion and style, home décor, health and wellness, world of taste, natural and organic products, the active women’s zone, travel showcase and the Artisan’s Marketplace.
