This Weekend's Great Finds and The Craft Sales To Look Forward To This Week

This weekend I finally got to a couple of craft sales and spent too much money as usual.  :)  I got to the Holiday Sale at the Unitarian Church on Wellington and the R.A.Steen Craft Sale.  They were both great and I found some nice things....lots of yummy edible things too.  :)  I bought an apple pie in a mason jar that I am looking forward to eating and a huge loaf of artisan cheddar and onion bread that my friends and I munched on the walk home.  Along with that I got my Just the Goods stash for the beginning of winter, my annual chocolate ornaments, peach blackberry jam (204-654-4281), and red pepper salsa.  I also got my kids' Hello Kitty & Cat in the Hat crocheted hats from the Blessings by Charity table (they are in the top left corner).  My kids will love them.  I unfortunately didn't get very many business cards but I was very interested in Retro Glitz jewelery and may keep an eye on her.  :)

I need to walk the kids to school now so here is what to look forward this weekend:

A Slew of Craft Sales Coming Up This Weekend

This is when the craft season starts getting a little crazy.  There are so many options that it is hard to decide on where to head.  I actually haven't had much luck this month with craft sale attendance.  I just can never get to the ones I want.  This weekend I am planning to attend at least the R.A.Steen Fall Craft Sale because it is in my neighbourhood so I rarely miss it.  Even in a snow storm I can strap on some snowshoes and make it there.  :)  

Hope all the sales are a great success and that many of my readers find great locally made Christmas gifts for their loved ones.....or good finds for themselves of course.  ;)
