Artisan began in June 1988 when Trail’s Economic Action Committee was working to improve the local economy. Local craftspeople were brought together to start a member run, consignment craft shop, which has been going strong ever since. Our membership has varied over the years, but we are dedicated to providing our community with a wide variety of quality handcrafted gifts. We still have 2 working members who were with Artisan when it started and one member who joined shortly afterwards.

New craft, members and consignees are enthusiastically welcomed. If you are a crafter/artist and would like to try and sell what you make come into the store and talk to the working member or check out the form on our Forms tab for information.  Drop in and visit us in our downtown location.
