Boat transforms into market

 

Thousands walked through the doors of the S.S. Sicamous over the weekend, which transformed into a unique Christmas market.

Over 40 local vendors were on board the luxury passenger vessel in Penticton, showcasing their handcrafted goods for purchase.

“We are very much in line with supporting our local economy,” said Laurel Burnham, market manager. “All of the vendors are small scale entrepreneurs.”

“There’s all kind of beautiful handmade items and baking.”

The boat turned into a Christmas market on both Saturday and Sunday, with a small fee at the door.

“A large part of what we take at the door will go back into the ship itself, which is really significant because this is a beautiful heritage site,” Burnham said.  

The family friendly event had knit wear, quilting, homemade baking, soaps, candles and more.
