I love holiday craft fairs. I’m disappointed to miss Vancouver’s amazing Got Craft and Make It events this year. I’m hoping Saskatoon’s Flock & Gather Winter Wonders Handmade Market and Artisan Fine Craft Market can help fill this void in my DIY, local shopping, holiday heart.
I am really loving Flock & Gather’s Winter Wonders poster! How charming is this mustached reindeer?!

To readers nearby and readers far away, I encourage you to shop local this holiday season! Over the past five years my parents’ favourite Christmas presents were handmade, purchased at a local shop, or bought at a holiday market. Holiday craft fairs are the perfect opportunity to shop for one of a kind goods in a casual environment where you will have the opportunity to meet the makers in person, talk about their handmade goods, and learn about their creative processes.
Doesn’t it feel amazing to support artisans and crafters like Mabel Pike!?
