Business Beat by Aaron Orlando

The 2011 Revelstoke Women’s Show at the Hillcrest Hotel was another great opportunity to learn about new and new-ish businesses in Revelstoke. Here’s just a few of the stories from the popular charity fundraiser for the Revelstoke Womens’ Shelter, raising a total of $8,969 this year, said organizer Tanya Secord.

Jessica Stewardson Photography

Jessica Stewardson (www.jessicastewardsonphotography.com) specializes in natural light family photography. She consults with clients and then draws on a catalogue of “secret locations” to create lasting art for display in the family home. Coffee table books and canvas prints are popular, she says. Her business is full-service, from initial consultation to final product. “I’m trying to make art for the home,” Stewardson said.

Tomboy Tools

Tomboy Tools is just one businesses  Michelle Nagy has on the go. The line of pink home tools are specially designed for women, featuring smaller sizes and unique designs that are a  better ergonomic fit for smaller hands. She offers one-on-one sales or parties with discounts for the host.  “It’s just a fun thing that I do,” she said. Nagy is also a co-owner of Bear Canyon Cabinets, which is about to re-open in the Industrial Park near the BC Hydro building, hopefully in a couple of weeks. The business was previously located on Garden & Victoria. For more on Tomboy Tools or Bear Canyon Cabinets, email Michelle at michelle@bearcanyoncabinets.ca.
