We are a non-profit society promoting and selling the works of local artisans.
The Circle of Friends Artisan Shoppe located at 235 Fowler Ave. showcases the works of East Shore artists, artisans, writers and musicians in a coffee house setting. Each item is a unique treasure.
The Circle of Friends is a social enterprise fostering local talent and addressing rural underemployment, branching out of the Riondel Parks and Recreation Society. It’s met with widespread enthusiasm on the East Shore and strong support from the Regional Dsitrict of Central Kootenay Area A Economic Development Commission and local partners.
