Success Stories




The world of business is changing. There are an increasing number of people who are looking at working from home and being their own boss.
The Brocanteuse is one such Drumheller business. Kandace Wylie-Toews has always had a passion for working on furniture; and after a career in nursing in the penitentiary she decided she wanted to turn that passion into a business. The premise behind the business is to take old furniture pieces and give them a new lease on life.

So how is business? She expressed that it's going really well, in fact better than expected. Her family are very excited for her and at how well it is going. After being in business for a couple of years Stephen Peterson owner of the Brick bought some pieces from her and so began a partnership. You are now able to find pieces of work displayed in the Drumheller Brick for sale.
Kandace is often busy at markets and is now branching out to markets in towns such Penhold and even Calgary to sell her wares.
When asked what it is about being in Drumheller that she enjoys? She shared that the town has been good to her and has been a great place to bring up her family.

When asked if she has any words of wisdom or thoughts she would like to share. She explained that being able to do something she is passionate about has really changed her outlook on life in a positive way.
