40 Years of RFM; 40 Best Customers - #8
In celebration of the RFM’s 40th Anniversary, we’re giving our vendors the opportunity to nominate and reward Best Customers. This allows our vendors to show appreciation for special customers that have supported them on their endeavours. Not every day is an amazing day at the Market, but these customers show up rain-or-shine.
40 years is a long time for any organization to be around, and it’s a lot of time for things to grow stagnant. RFM, however, is still thriving; we have never been more relevant and more loved than we are today. The Market family continues to grow along with customer attendance. We owe this success to the City of Regina, Regina Downtown, our vendors, and most importantly, our customers.
Please allow us to show our gratitude to 40 people in representation of thousands, with our only regret being that we can’t reward each and every person that takes the time to visit us, whether it’s once a week or once a year. Thank you.
The nomination for Best Customer #8 comes from Jen of Metal Majesty. Jen makes chainmaille jewelry, but it's not the chainmaille jewelry that you're used to seeing. Jen has a way of taking a very masculine technique and turning it into dainty and elegant pieces of jewelry.

Danielle has been a customer of RFM since she her early 20s when she worked downtown. She says "all of it" is her favourite thing to purchase, but did manage to narrow it down to a few items: fresh veggies, jewelry, dips and pies.
"Um...maybe only sometimes," was what Danielle said when asked if she hides purchases from her family (I bet she hides the pie!). Danielle enjoys shopping at RFM because she believes in buying local and supporting local producers with fresh and unique products. "I love Regina!"
Danielle loves Metal Majesty, but she wouldn't sell jewelry if she became a vendor of RFM. Instead, Danielle would sell custom garter belts for weddings, hair accessories and knitted items. Crafty people always have something on the go!
What does Jen think of her Best Customer?
"Dani is my Best Customer because she always returns to buy more and always promotes my jewelry wherever she goes!"
Thank you, Danielle, for being a Best Customer!
