BCL Hall, Wednesday, Dec. 7th 2022, 5–8 pm:
A surprising number of renowned and highly talented artists, artisans, authors and designers live in the community. The annual Belgravia Holiday Market on December 7th promises to be a wonderful opportunity to meet your creative neighbours and do some Christmas shopping by buying local.
With more than 24 vendors registered, you’re guaranteed to find a unique gift for someone on your list. This year’s wares include stained glass pieces, hand-woven tea towels, tree ornaments, pottery, sculpture, hand-painted cards, jewellery, books, cakes and local honey, and even crafts made by young community members from Belgravia School.
“We have some amazingly talented and internationally renowned artists living right here in our community,” says Jeanette Boman, who is organizing the event with Brenda Philp this year. “This is not your ordinary craft sale. You’ll be surprised by the variety of beautiful things.” One of the joys of shopping at the Holiday Market is meeting the artists and learning about how they made their products and what inspired them. Those stories can then be shared with your gift recipients.
Mark the date and come out to meet your neighbours and support our local artists!
