HUGE Sale on Canada Day at Sew Dandee!

It's that time of the year again! You best not miss our Canada Day Sale this year because I'm finally going to set up a tent outside and put a heck load of stuff at 50% off! And the lovely and talented local designer, Lisa Dyck is going to have a rack of her designs out there too! You best head on down anytime between 11am and 8pm on Monday to get you hands some some sweet handmade deals! Here are just a few things that will be included in the 25% off sale going on inside the store!

These beautiful tanks are by a new designer I feature at the shop, Heidi and Seek Boutique from Winkler. Her first batch of dresses sold out in two days so needless to say, it's a good thing she's bringing in some fresh stock today to get us through the weekend and hopefully leave some for the 25% of sale on Monday.
