Last weekend to get that extra special item!

I can hardly believe it's the final weekend of the Artisans' Gift Fair.  Today has been extremely busy as shoppers come through seeking their final items and possibly something unique as an added bonus.

We had another great selection of new vendors today and for many, today is their last day so hopefully you had a chance to come by. Tomorrow we will have another group of new faces and products as well.

This exhibitor had a great selection of gift items.  If you're interested in comfortable and stylish slippers or a colourful bag, scarf or hat then visit the booth from 'Kwool Things'.  Prices ranged from $5 - $40.

Searching for organic body products that work? Then come by 'Eli's Body Shop'.  A wonderful selection of soaps, body butters, moisturizers, lip balms and many other soothing items.  Prices ranged from $5 - $25.

This booth had such a wonderful assortment of items that were truly original in nature.  Bicycle seat covers, vintage tie belts, glasses cases and vinyl record napkin holders and bowls.  That's only a small subset of what 'Divinyl Art' and 'ndthreads' had available.  Divinyl Art's prices ranged from $4 - $15 and ndthreads' prices ranged from $20 - $30.

And on the note of vinyl check out the selection from 'Amy Hoare'.  She creates beautiful images on vinyl records, as well as on canvas.  Her use of bright and fun colours extends to a delightful selection of stuff animals as well. Prices ranged from $10 - $80.

Looking for a unique center piece for your dining room or living room cabinet? These stunning pottery pieces created by 'Jills' Objets' are exquisite with ornate details and beautiful muted shades throughout each bowl, vase or mug.  Considering the workmanship, prices are extremely reasonable, ranging from $15 - $50.

A show is not complete without the  tasty goodies!  'The Travelling Baker' had a delicious selection of Marshmallow, fudge, caramel, and maple brittle treats with a unique combination of flavours.  Free samples were being handed out so don't miss out!  Prices ranged from $5 - $20.

The items for sale at 'Yellow Yellow Designs' had a stunning selection of colours.  These pillows, aprons, baby mats and pot holders were bright, cheerful and contemporary - the best of all worlds :).  Prices ranged from $8 - $30.

On the note of bright and cheerful, the products from 'Ascension' really hit the mark.  A great selection of gifts for girls, with hair clips, pouches, hair bands, dresses, etc.  The colours really pop and make a fashion statement. Prices ranged from $5 - $40.

Wow was the first word that came to mind with the delicious syrup I tasted from 'Pure Vanilla Products'.  A flavour I haven't yet experienced until discovering this treasure.  I highly recommend popping by and visiting their booth.  You can purchase a variation of vanilla products and gourmet syrups.  Prices ranged from $10 - $20.

'Madstone Soapery' had a fantastic selection of handmade bath and body products. A delightful array of scents, colours and pampering products were available and prices were great with a range of $4 - $16.

And last but not least, there was a huge variation of fun and intriguing products at the booth of 'Jackelope Fine Art & Craft'.  Vibrant and colourful hair clips and hat pins with exotic feathers, buttons of various sorts, fur collars, felted figures, earrings and the list goes on.  Prices ranged from $3 - $65.

Today was great as people were in the holiday spirit, especially with snow on the ground which was a pleasant surprise.  

Tomorrow's the last day, so take a moment to come on by and check us out!
