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.

The Kaleidoscope... a celebration of craft & design

Kaleidoscope... acelebration of craft and design  will be held on Sunday September 23, 10am – 5pm at the Fields of Westlake in Bloomfield, Ontario. Admission is $2, kids under 12 are free.

The mission of The Kaleidoscope show organizers is to create a beautiful and intimate experience for attendees and perhaps change the perspective of what a "craft show" is, as many still might think it means crocheted toilet paper covers!  Well amen to that! 

Isa Te's Designs

With everything from upcycled clothing by Isa Te’s Designs, to bird houses by Kim’s woodshed this is a great opportunity to get to do a little shopping for yourself or get your Christmas shopping started (just don't tell anyone, no one likes a show off!)  while spending a great weekend enjoying the picturesque country side of Prince Edward County. 

Pulp & Paisley

Cara Hunter is not only the talent behind Pulp & Paisley Jewellery, a vendor at the show, she is one of the organizers of the show. Cara, Connie Yrjola of Glamour Junkie Jewellery and Barb Forgie of My Stuff-fabric baskets are the producers of “The Mother of All Craft Shows” held right before Mother’s Day and  Mistletoe Magic Artisan Show & Sale held each year in November, both at the River Inn in Corbyville, ON. With an established following of both artisans and customers, a couple of successful shows under their belts,  the ladies have decided to round out the calendar year with the Kaleidoscope show this September.

The show is being held at Fields on West Lake a really cool new facility in beautiful Prince Edward County. They are fully licensed too! It doesn`t get much better than sipping on a glass of County wine while checking out what some great local artisans AND the show is being held the same weekend as the Prince Edward County Studio Tour, so there will be a ton of great artisans to see all over the place.

Remember to look out for the Mistletoe Magic Artisan Show & Sale on November 25, 2012.
