Wandering Winter Craft Show

For the 2nd year, Shop Cats will be presenting it's annual Wandering Winter Craft Show. Two dates, two locations, two chances to buy handmade this holiday season! Here at 100 mile finds we are big fans of Shop Cats! How can we not be?! Their mission is to showcase local crafters and artists and exhibit their locally made handicrafts and goods at one of a kind pop-up craft markets! What's not to like?

Shop Cats is the brain child of Emma, of landfill designs. She has had a varied career including everything from the theatre, retail to manufacturing and quality assurance, and she's always been crafty along the way! All this experience adds to being one heck of a craft show organizer!

The shows are being held on Saturday November 26th from 11am- 5pm at the Church of the Holy Trinity (it's beside Sears on Trinity Way by the Eaton Centre) and on Saturday Dec. 10th at the Gladstone Hotel in their Ground floor Ballroom (1214 Queen St. W.)

They will have over 20 vendors at each show, showcasing a really cool bunch of local talent. There are painters, card makers, to toys for the kids and a great selection of jewellery. With vendors ranging from Candiware, offering the cutest little mini food jewellery to the Polished Penny, an artisan who specializes in fine sterling silver jewellery, you are sure to cross off some of your "hard to buy fors" on your list.

Susan and I will be hosting a raffle at the show on November 26th, we'd love it if you came by and said Hi! You can enter the draw, you might even win $250 worth of goodies and gift vouchers just for signing up for our newsletter!
