And of course, it wouldn’t be a BC Home + Garden show, without featuring local small businesses.  Some BC-based companies which will be exhibiting at the show include:

The FAT Paint Company (New Westminster, BC)

The FAT Paint Company makes chalk-style paint that goes on smooth, distresses easily, and finishes with flair. Developed by an artisanal brother-sister duo, FAT Paint transforms old furniture, frames, bowls, jars, and anything at all really into enviable works of upcycled art.

Republica Roasters (Fort Langley, BC)

Republica Coffee Roasters specializes in fine single estate coffees from around the world, roasted to best exemplify their flavour profiles. To ensure quality and freshnes, they roast fresh to order, and each batch is meticulously cupped to ensure it meets our superior quality standards. All coffees not sold within 72 hours of the roast day are donated to the community.
