This is my first stop after coming off the Kootenay Bay Ferry. Unique one-of-a-kind shop. Excellent choice whether the broom is for utility or display purpose. Superb craftsmanship on any types of blooms. Cute tiny blooms as fridge magnets are wonderful souvenirs or gifts. Artist on site with his workshop eager to explain his products. I came across the blooms of limited quantities for sale in the gift shop of Grand Forks Art Gallery/Visitors Centre.

We went in and yes we did buy a broom that will likely never get used but will made a nice display item with stories to tell about Crawford Bay. Thank you for the great experience.

Gorgeous handmade brooms and a chance to speak with the artist made this visit a highlight. He helped us pick out a couple of brooms that will help pick up the dog hair. He explained the process and his love for his art was obvious. We are really happy we stopped by!

I wasn’t planning on buying a hand made broom on this vacation, but after stopping and talking to the artisan making them on site, I had to.

Open most of the year except Winter, this family run business revives the art of making brooms which last a long time. Special edition Harry Potter promo brooms were made here. Check their website for hours open.

We were traveling the Selkirk Loop with our friends. We caught the Osprey 2000 Ferry in Balfour. North Woven Broom is a short drive from the Ferry landing.
It is a small barn type building. There was a male and a female inside both making broom. It was interesting to see how they are made. There are numerous brooms hanging everywhere in this small building. There also had whisks, potato scrubbers, golf shoe scrubbers and other items.
They have posted a number of articles about where the materials come from, the link with Harry Potter and other articles.
The staff are very approachable and willing to answer any questions while they work away at another broom.
It was definitely worth the stop.

While travelling through Crawford Bay we stopped at the North Woven Broom company. A must see for Harry Potter enthusiastics. Brooms are made on site with help of local tradespeople. Very interesting.

This is the second visit for us and as before we left with a new broom. Note that there are brooms at all price points. My daughter and daughter-in-law love their broom and now we have one. My sister-in-law and her husband purchased seven brooms for members of their families. I am glad I didn’t have to pay that bill as their brooms were really ‘special’. Even if you don’t buy you must stop just to experience the beauty of these works of art.

This is a small workshop filled to the brim with artisan brooms of all sizes and shapes. The brooms are works of art but they are also practical and can be used for, you guessed it, sweeping. They have made brooms for numerous movies, Harry Potter events and for art collectors.
