I live in Nelson too! The store on Baker street is called the Sewing Room (my favorite store in town, I spend wayyy too much in there!) I haven't met any fellow crafters yet, although i know there are so many artisty people here and around. I guess I don't get out much.
There's also "the craft store" just up from baker street behind the CAA travel place, they have lots of great stuff  for candle making, stained glass and sculpey, good prices too.

So I have to go to Nelson on August 5th. I have to be there at about 8ish, as my car is going in for a tune up at 8:30 at Nelson Dodge.

Anyone have any suggestions on where I can hang out downtown as the car is getting worked on? It will either be me on my own, or me and my mom and sister... depending on the day. Also, how about a spot to get a good breakfast for not too much? I don't eat much, but I do need a little something.

Normally when I'm in Nelson/going through I just stop at the mall quickly and be on my way, but I don't think I'll be wanting to hike to the mall and hike back in this heat! Mall stop for when I'm back in my car.

It's too bad that I live on the other side of canada. The title of the thread caught my eye because I've actually been to Trail before (I went camping there once for a week). I also know someone from Abbotsford who seemed impressed that anyone had ever been to the area, especially someone from so far east.

I hope the knitting goes well!

I get surprised when people from like, Vancouver and stuff have heard of this area. I love living here (for the most part Wink ) so I think I know why so many people like it here. Grin

Hey guys, it's me formally known as scratchtest.  Unfortunately I was having problems with the other account and had to create this one in lieu of using that one.

But I'm in town now, happily enjoying Nelson rather than the hustle and bustle of Vancouver.  I still have to get a bit more used to small town life, but I do enjoy it Smiley.

I'm in the Slocan valley and am totally into hooking up for some kind of knitting circle.  Just moved here from Calgary so so far the knitting community is the only thing I missed. Other than that it's paradise!

I lived in Vancouver for 9 months and I, too, feared for my life whenever I crossed the street. I remember standing at a crosswalk on Cambie, patiently waiting for cars to see me and stop (which cars are supposed to do at a crosswalk).

Eventually, I gave up and walked to the lights where I was guaraneed they would eventually stop for me.

What's it like in Nelson? Is it small enough to walk everywhere? Is there transit? Can you make a living there?

Nelson is a very artsy, laid back, hippie city. You can get around Nelson by walking, and there is a transit bus if you need it. Most people in Nelson either work in coffee shops, or other shops or start their own business and do fairly well.

There is a mall by the lakeside with Save-On Foods on one end and Wal-Mart at the other end. Just down the road there is a huge public beach and park with nice paved walkways to go for a leisurely walk.

Baker Street is the street to shop on as it has tons of tiny shops and cool little stores. Off on the side streets there are tiny shops as well. Lots of art stores and craft stores.

Nelson is pretty nice place to be... you can check it out online at http://www.city.nelson.bc.ca/.

Oh! And the movie Roxanne was filmed here too! Smiley As well as a few other small parts in some movies.
