Meet Darlene & Bruce

Darlene & Bruce is the owner of Creative Haven

Darlene and Bruce (photo right) moved out of the Lower Mainland in 2010. They appreciate Lillooet’s climate, the scenery and the great people. “There’s not a stop light in town,” said Darlene of Lillooet, who enjoys the slower pace of life and quiet atmosphere of the community. Darlene and Bruce like getting out into the backcountry in their spare time. One location Darlene recommends for those who wish to find a place close to town to go exploring is Fountain Valley with its stunning landscape.

Darlene and Bruce own the building at 657 Main Street which has been many things over the years. When the previous tenant moved out, it seemed like a good time to take over and change the focus. “We have so much local talent,” she says, “and there hasn’t been a dedicated venue to showcase that talent.” Darlene and Bruce believe the vibe on Main Street seems to be changing and are excited to have a business that is part of that change. Darlene points out that ”">Abundance Artisan Bakery has been a natural fit in the same building and feels the two Artisan businesses are helping to transform Main Street. Darlene points out that Creative Haven and the bakery are “two businesses that help stimulate your senses and creative juices.”
