You are invited to Celebrate Our Makers. The Kamloops Chamber of Commerce is turning the spotlight on businesses throughout the Thompson Valley that make our community distinct. We are taking a closer look at the people behind the scenes, behind the creation, and behind the experience - asking what is it that you create? Let’s find out.
Kat created the Made Here retail space at the Visitor Information Centre in Cache Creek, BC to give local artists and creators an opportunity to showcase and sell their work to visitors, the community and our region. As a funded Visitor Information Centre, Made Here is able to sell items without taking a commission.
‘Our Made Here retail space is important to the arts community in the Thompson Nicola Region because small communities need more opportunities and more exposure than larger centres, and they need it at lower costs.’
Made Here acts as a platform for regional artists and creators to show visitors what the region has to offer and provides guests of the Cache Creek Visitor Information Centre access to local, authentic souvenirs and gifts. All Made Here items are also available to purchase online at visitcachecreek.ca/made-here-retail-space and include free shipping within Canada.
When Kat brought Made Here to life, she connected the rural arts community, local artists and creators with our region's guests, ensuring that their precious creations are enjoyed for years to come.
