Mistletoe Magic Holiday Craft Show and Sale

Mark Thursday November 24th from 5pm to 9pm on your calendar. Dubbed Don Mills' own "One of a Kind show" with something for everyone and every budget, this years Mistletoe Magic Holiday Craft Show and Sale promises not to disappoint! Norman Ingram School, 50 Duncarin Rd. in Don Mills.
With more than 25 local artisans, selling everything from art, clothing and accessories, specialty foods, home decor, jewellery, kids' products, handbags and much more, this is the perfect venue to find that unique gift.

Organized by the Norman Ingram School Council as a school fundraiser and community spirit event, and supported by local businesses, this event is a huge success year after year. There is a raffle with over 25 prizes, and the first 300 guests receive a free shopping bag (courtesy of the Shops at Don Mills). Wait, that's not all, there is bake sale, free parking AND babysitting is available while you shop!

Saracino Designs
There are a ton of amazing vendors at this event. One of my personal favorites is Saracino Designs. Susan and I have had the pleasure of showcasing Jane's bags at several craft shows. Her work is amazing. They are beautifully made, no attention to detail is spared and they are soooo fun! Jane doesn't sell at a lot of shows so you don't want to miss your chance to see her work up close and personal!

Lulu & Mika
Another favorite here at 100 mile finds is the Lulu & Mika! Their sock monkeys are adorable, as are their baby hats and kimonos, yes I said kimonos! and they also create fabulous jewelery for Mom, wait I almost forgot their newest creation, cuff links made out of LEGO! How cool is that?!

There really is something for everyone on your shopping list at this show. Tarquin from Henna Planet will be on hand selling gift certificates, candles, magnets and photo holders. Her work is beautiful and what teenage girl wouldn't love a Henna Tattoo? Tarquin hosts parties and small events too! Hmmm...

Another great opportunity to get some of your holiday shopping done!
