In the spirit of local community, Craftadian will debut in Port Credit with a Christmas pop up market on Saturday, November 12th at the First United Church along Lakeshore West. Visitors will be treated to handcrafted gift ideas from more than 40 carefully selected makers and artisans hailing from across Mississauga and the GTA.
A condensed version of the Craftadian fairs, the pop-up will be a one stop Christmas shop for all your gifting needs. The debut show offers up handcrafted local goods – ranging from 100% organic skincare to personalized stationery to hand-stamped jewelry and quirky home decor, plus so much more.
Mississauga natives will flock to local finds from Erika Elizabeth Paper's handmade personalized cards, Plantimals original gold toned animals planters, and Dream Willow Studios hand-stamped rose gold and silver toned jewellery range.
Keep an eye out for Naked Paisley offering a selection of 100% brass made jewelry suitable for the care-free minimalist in your life, or Soup Girl's custom made healthy dry soup medleys that are perfect for busy lifestyles.
Don't miss out on Wild Blue Yonder's one-of-a-kind jewellery made with salvaged wood and resin from Northern Ontario, The Real Cocoa Butter's 100% organically made body cream, and Picklesworth Baby selling stylish teething "chewlery" made from food grade silicone and maple wood beads, which are sure to delight the naturalists on your Christmas gift list.
Visitors also have a chance to win Etsy Canada gift cards, and receive a free swag bag (while quantities last) filled with handmade goodies from the Craftadian Christmas Pop Up makers. Tickets can be bought online or at the door for $3, and admission is free for children under the age of 16.
Since 2011, Craftadian (formerly the Made by Hand Show) has been a destination to shop for locally handmade products made and designed by Canadian artists, artisans and designers. The show features quality handmade exhibitors carefully selected by a jury. From original artwork, body products, candles, clothing, ceramics, fashion accessories, jewellery, photography, pottery, paper goods, toys, wood and a range of gourmet goodies, there is something for everyone.
