Wondering where to find the coolest handmade gifts for everyone on your holiday list?
Do you want to support talented Canadian artisans and designers instead of huge multinational chains? Well then Make It is the place you want to be this November 19 -21!
Shop from over 90 of Canada's hottest emerging designers under one roof!
Did I mention there's beer and wine!?

What sets Make It apart from a typical craft show is the funky, upbeat atmosphere. Top DJs will be spinning urban beats as you peruse the booths creating a fun party vibe. This is definitely not
your "granny's craft show" and therefore there will be no pinecone art or popsicle stick reindeers in sight! At Make It you will only find cool, innovative and stylish items that generally fall into the fashion, art, accessories, jewelry and home decor categories.

The First 25 Shoppers get a free goodie bag! (each day)

Tickets are $5 at the door----> visit the link for $2off!
kids 12 & are free!

Hope to see you this weekend!

Blim Monthly Community Market coming up this Nov. 28

Blim Monthly Community Market

Sunday November 28 | 11 AM – 4 PM | By donation
Chinese Cultural Centre (50 Pender St. E)
Blim will be presenting a monthly Community Market this month to take place for the first time, at the Chinese Cultural Center in Chinatown.
This Months market will include 60 vendors, music, hot food, beverages, and entertainment. Vendors will include food, fashion, accessories, supplies, fine art, vintage items and records, and not be limited to crafts. And there will be a focus on nurturing and promoting creative production in our community. We want to appeal to young, old, hip, plain, babies, animals, men, women, everyone.
We are very excited about this event and what it can contribute to Chinatown’s artistic vitality, and how it can help support and encourage the local creative community.

Truncated long posts rule. What a nightmare to have to edit each post though. Oh well. If youre reading old posts I hope you realize they are old.
Oh yeah. I forgot I wanted to try to capitalize and punctuate properly. Hopefully next time I'll remember to do this before I type out a paragraph. yeah right.
Ok going to get dressed to go to the produce market. Now!
