Christmas in the Valley Artisan Show
Are you looking for gifts with originality, quality and attention to detail? Then forget the big impersonal box stores with their foreign merchandise to get an old fashion shopping experience at the Christmas in the Valley Artisan Show Saturday & Sunday, November 3 & 4 from 10-4pm. Over 26 local and area artisans, crafters and bakers will be showcasing their hand made creations and delicacies that will surely make for memorable and thoughtful gifts for those on your shopping list…or maybe something for yourself!
The Christmas in the Valley Artisan Show strives to bring in new vendors and old favorites to give you a wide variety of hand crafted items for those special people and pets on your shopping list. Realistic wildlife carvings, sun catching stained-glass and fused, rustic pottery in many forms, doggie treats that look good enough to eat, scented soaps and scrubs, maple products and gift baskets, flavoured honey and beeswax candles, silky scarves to dress up a winter coat, jewellery in wire and fair trade beads, delicious cakes, cookies and sweet confections, framed miniature quilts, twinkling glass boxes wrapped in pretty bows, creative floral arrangements to adorn your home, decorative and useful woodworking items are just examples of what you will find at this popular
Almonte Christmas sale.
This year we are collecting for the Lanark Animal Welfare Society. A donation of Canadian Tire money, canned tin of dog or cat food, a roll of paper towels, container of bleach, dishwashing soap or bungee cords would be of great value and completely voluntary (admission to the show is free). Or check the LAWS website for other items on their wish list. www.lanarkanimals.ca
The canteen will be hosted by The Friends of the Mississippi Mills Textile Museum who will be serving tasty snacks, sandwiches and drinks with the proceeds going towards museum projects. Free admission to the show, lots of parking, wheel chair accessible and a fabulous door prize for a lucky winner.
Make plans to come to the Almonte Community Centre Upper Hall 182 Bridge Street to begin your 2012 Christmas shopping and visit the pretty village of Almonte where there is lots to see and do. Also, see the Harvest Craft Sale taking place at the Old Town Hall, 14 Bridge Street.
