I love going to craft fairs. I like to see what is new, and who the up-and-coming artisans are.
I'm going to showcase as many as I can find in the Toronto area. If you know of any, please leave a comment, or email me!
I'll try to list them a week ahead of time and then a reminder a few days before they happen.
Here are the ones that I have so far (I'll tell you far more about them individually when their dates get closer). Put them on your calendar -- and let me know of any -- no matter how small :)
November 24-Dec 4 -- One of a Kind Show, Toronto (CNE)
November 25-January 1 -- Niagara Holiday Market (Niagara Falls)
December 10 - o'born Holiday Multiples Fair , Toronto (west)
December 10+11 -- City of Craft, Toronto (west)
December 11 -- Bazaar of the Bizarre , Toronto(west) (at the same venue/ time as City of Craft? I don't know how this works?)

I know that there will likely be some holiday show& sales in the Annex, at the Gladstone, some in the Beach, but I can't find dates yet. What's with that? I'm already playing my holiday music :)

If you're itching to shop before any of these happen check out some of the great shows in the city that carry independent artists! (again -- please let me know of the many, many that I have missed -- I'm a west end girl :)
Wise Daughters Craft Market (west -- in the junction)
Fresh Collective (west -- roncesvalles, Queen, and kensington)
