Silver Stetson Gallery…

13 Jul

I got to go down to the CALGARY STAMPEDE the other day with my little family and did we have fun!

Besides the traditional midway rides, games and FOOD (!) we found a lot of free kids stuff to do…

Face painting, play dough fun, bouncy castles and more! (check out the lower level at the Big Four building if you can!)

And then we did my favorite part…

The trade show!

Every year I look forward to this, hoping to find some great new stores or items…

And in the past, I have been disappointed.

Disappointed enough that I have written to the Calgary Stampede about it. Who wants booth after booth of magic carpet cleaners or slap chop?

Either they got my email and took it VERY seriously…or more than one complaint was heard by the Stampede, because in the last few years, the booths have gotten better…

Not Las Vegas Cowboy Christmas better…

But better.

This year was great because I discovered a new local store and did some shopping!!

 

And these are just a few items they had! Silver Stetson Gallery is a newer company located in Okotoks, Alberta and they describe themselves as…

“Silver Stetson Gallery is the place to find something “just a little bit different” in western and southwestern décor and art.”

Check them out and tell them The Farmer’s Trophy Wife sent ya!!

    How did I miss them???? I went through the trade show and was quite disappointed because I drove my truck out hoping to fill it up, only to turn around and drive it home EMPTY! How did this happen???? :/
