In 2012, we three sister-in-laws were seeking a creative outlet and had a surplus of beeswax and honey on hand from our Lazy Bee Apiary in Irma, Alberta. We began making pure beeswax candles and lip balm and Simply Bee was born. Inspired to create quality, handcrafted and safe products for our family and friends, we expanded our product line to include handcrafted soaps, skin care products, beeswax candles and other beeswax creations.
In 2023, we decided to move in a different direction and stepped back from making our own products. Years before, we began hosting an artisan Christmas Market after noticing a need for a venue where people could purchase local hand made goods. It quickly became a passion for each of us to provide a place to bring local artisans together and for 7 years we have been hosting vendors from all over east central Alberta! This year we welcome you to join us at our 8th annual Christmas in the Country and see what talent our region has to offer.
