Celebrating a New Kootenay Biz!

collaboration events local love out & about

Casey's Community House Grand Opening

We were super excited to be part of the launch of Casey's Community House in Creston on May long weekend. Casey's Community House (CCH) opened for business as part of the annual Blossom Fest weekend. The weather was great and the crowds were out enjoying various events around town. We spent the day at CCH running our pop-up shop with all of our new Spring apparel and it was a blast. Thank you to everyone that came by to check out the space and say hello to us. We love doing markets and getting the chance to meet and chat with people. Big thanks to Tanya and Ralph at Casey's for letting us hang out!

If you've been to the Kootenay Hotel over the years, you know it's gone through many changes, and the CCH team has brought a totally new look and energy to the space. The exterior brickwork is beautiful. The interior has a classic feel throughout - slightly rustic without being over done. It's the perfect mix of modern and standard pub coziness. As designers, both of us were really impressed with the details. The restaurant boasts a wine bar, large garage doors at the front that open up to take in Mainstreet, and on Sundays, they will be hosting a Tailgate Party!

We were stoked to be able to design custom shirts for the team who sported the new look all weekend! The T's were based on Casey's tailgate party theme with a vintage truck illustration. CCH settled on a bold heather red shirt for staff as an ode to the new brick exterior of the building. (Cue these two lovely ladies and CCH staffers modelling below)

Crowds on Sunday were pretty intense. It's obvious that locals are pumped about a new establishment in town. We can attest that a lot of hard work went on behind the scenes to have CCH up and running for the long weekend. Do yourself a favour and stop in!

When you support small business, you're supporting a dream! 

What's Next on the Agenda

We will be at the Bohemian Spirits distillery in Kimberley on Saturday, June 2nd doing another pop-up shop. We will be there with all of our Kootenay and outdoor inspired apparel and goods from 11:30-3:30. Stop by for some shopping and a distillery tour! Details here.
