WE HAD SO MANY FANTASTIC ENTRIES FOR OUR FIRST EVER DESIGN CONTEST.
For me, it was the thought and stories behind the designs that struck me most. You are an awesome bunch of "Barbarians"
But, in the end we could only choose two designs that overall captured what we love about Barb's. Yes... that's right TWO designs.
We just adored this design by Ceilidh Divers.
Ceilidh grew up here on Salt Spring Island and all the goodness of Barb's. When we first saw her whimsical design, we couldn't help but feel like there was a Fairy Tale behind the drawing.
For the first time ever we are printing a limited edition run of kids shirts just for this design.
Ceilidh did tell us that she has a desire to work on a children's book, set in a bakery. How cute would that be! But, until then, we will have to be content with our wee clan members sporting an adorable t-shirt.
The second design we chose comes from local wildlife artist ~ W. Allan Hancock.
Allan and his family LOVE enjoying everything Barb's has to offer, so he decided to join in the fun of our contest. The design we selected, depicts his family's personal favorites. We couldn't agree more... coffee, croissants, cookies and Salt Spring Island!
