Letters: Shop locally

Sooke craftsperson appreciates support from local buyers

A great editorial in your Nov. 6 paper, “A time to consider local artisans.” There are so many creative artists and crafters in the Sooke region and the challenge is to find ways to consistently expose their creations to a broad market. There are a few shops in Sooke that sell locally made arts and crafts, hopefully Sookies will consider looking in our local shopping district for gifts this season.
