So we will be heading down to 980 Palmerston Ave today to the R.A.Steen Community Centre Craft Fair. It is open 10-4 today and tomorrow. I always attend this craft fair. I am looking forward to it and I will update here about the vendors later today. There are craft and baking fairs all over the place. I saw signs everywhere last night. There is one in the building on Portage Ave across from Polo Park...not sure what it is...maybe a seniors complex. Others open today are:
Today: (10-4) Charleswood Y Neighbours Craft Sale at Charleswood United Church 4820 Roblin Blvd
Sunday: (11-4) Greendell Community Centre 75 Woodlawn Avenue
These are great places to look for gifts!! Craft fairs are not like the ones we headed to with Mom in the 80's. There are no handmade wreaths, doilies, or snowmen made out of cotton balls. The vendors have creative handmade gifts such as cards, baby bibs, slings, clothes, art, tiles, bags, knitwear, toys, woodworking, jewerly, photography, soaps & body products, and of course the yummy baking tables. If you have some time this weekend please take a peak at one of the fairs! Remember to support your local artisans and buy thoughtful gifts this year for Christmas!!
