Lifestyles Program

Our Lifestyles @ Sunset Industries program gives participants an opportunity to learn many crafting skills while enjoying a fun person-centered and relaxed environment. Participants gain many skills involved in creating a variety of products from start to end in a small group setting that promotes personal growth. We have a maximum of 4 participants at any one time.

Our goal is to create products that we will sell to the general public through our two Thrift Store locations in Pugwash and Oxford. The revenue from this program goes directly back into the program to buy the materials needed to continue creating amazing outcomes for those we serve.

Some of the products we have made include dog biscuits & dog toys, dryer balls, bookmarks, coasters, clothes pin trivets, fairy garden sets (door & window), cards, card assembly kits, tags, and Christmas ornaments – wooden disks, card stock, etc.

Our product line will evolve over time so keep an eye out for more creations.
