The best resource for great local shopping!

There is amazing stuff close by – local artisans and independently owned retailers, cool things to do and eat, and great charities to support. It’s good for the economy, the environment and the soul.

Last minute March Break ideas

Clearly you are home for the break. If the kids aren't in camp the whole week you are going to need something to do, am I right? Here are some great local options that won't break the bank!

First might I suggest you check our blog Tips and Tricks for surviving March Break. There are some great ideas in there. Now moving on to new information.

Did you know that Pioneer Village opens up for March Break? Just found out myself!

You can check out their website for all the details.

Evergreen Brickworks is another great place. There's the Young Welcome Centre, the Don Valley Brick Works Park and they've got different stuff going on at different times.

On Thursday March 17th they are having quite an evening planned. It runs from 6-9pm there will be a rocking skating party, fun food activities, honey-soaked treats, and a screening of the dcoumentary vanishing of the Bees. There will be an expert panel discussion on the issues and how you can get involved. Check out our S&S page for all the details.

Just need a couple of hours taken care of? What about a trip to the Revue Cinema? It's more fun than Cineplex, you feel like you are taking a trip into the past. I always expect to see Ritchie Cunningham and the gang there!

Wise Daughters Craft Market is offering a bunch of different workshops. Stuffies workshop, Tuesday, March 15, 10-12pm, 5+, Sock Creatures workshop, Thursday, March 17, 1-4:30pm, 8+, Learn to Knit, Friday, March 18, 1-4pm, ages 6+.

There are amazing neighbourhoods to explore with the kids too. Check out the "Tips & Tricks for surviving March Break" blog for some ideas on how to spend a day in Roncesvalles, also Leslieville has an amazing array of shops, restaurants and ice cream parlours to discover. Dorly Designs is a personal favourite of ours. They carry lots of local artisans there, including Adornments. Maybe you could squeeze a little shopping in. There are also the murals of Leslieville too. You could drive/walk around looking for all of them.

Hope you have a fantastic week!
