LIKE GRANDPA

Nostalgia and Comfort Brought to us by Like Grandpa Shave + Beard Products

Ken Kaminski-Raab and Keenyn Bijou, creators of Like Grandpa Shave & Beard Products, are back to share their rich line of shaving products with us! They first vended with us in the winter of 2017 and we are thrilled to have them back for the spring! From their mouths: "We are an all-natural grooming company that strives to provide quality products like our Grandpa’s always used." That sounds pretty nice to us! Keep up with Like Grandpa's progress on instagram/twitter (@likegrandpa) and read on down below to see what has been inspiring Ken and Keenyn to create!

Q: What does it mean to be an Edmonton maker/designer/artist?
LGSP: I think it means we can be unapologetically ourselves. Our communities are so inclusive and open minded and supportive that we can create things that we truly believe in

Q: What are your top 3 influences (artists, things, etc)?
LGSP: My grandfather and my dad: They showed me that there isn't anything you cannot craft, make, fix, construct, build or repair and there is value and beauty in the old and traditional ways of doing things. We are a family of makers through and through. Simplicity:  The simplicity of clean lines, simple design, old-fashioned technology and tradition. And our doggie Mister: It's the little things in life that make you happy each and every day.

Q: Favourite Bison item you’ve picked up at a previous fair?
LGSP: Keri V leather - Cord Taco's!! So simple but I cannot live without them!
