I’m a big fan of “made by hand” crafts. Not only do I appreciate the time and effort that someone puts into making something by hand, I love the “uniqueness” of made by hand crafts because they are something that are not made for the masses. They aren’t sold in every store across the country.
For those of you in the Toronto area, you are in luck. The Made By Hand Show, showcasing Canadian Artists, Artisans & Designers, is taking place on October 19th in Mississauga.
“With over 35,000 square feet of shopping and over 150 quality handmade exhibitors, this is a one-stop shopping experience not to be missed. There is something for everyone in every media: original artwork, baby/toys, body, candles, clothing, ceramics, fashion accessories, jewellery, photography, knitting, pottery, paper goods, wood and a range of gourmet goodies.”
For you Freebie lovers like me out there…“The Made by Hand Show offers the first 250 families a free swag bag filled with goodies from their vendors and sponsors. Doors open at 11:00am and will close at 5:00pm. Line up early for first pick of the amazing arts and crafts, while supporting your local handmade artists.”
Admission to the Made By Hand Show is only $5.00 and children are admitted free.
So to celebrate this great event, I’ve teamed up with some fellow Bloggers to bring you a fantastic giveaway full of prizes.
***Please be sure to read the full giveaway rules in the Rafflecopter form. Although this giveaway is open to all Canadians, prizes must be picked up in person at the Made By Hand Show in Mississauga, Ontario.
