One of the things I did today was a walk around town to some local shops. The Urban Craft Market was on, so I stopped in to see what that was all about. It’s a great location (Holland and Wellington) and gets lots of walk-in traffic; I may consider it in the future. It is open the first Saturday of every month.
I resisted the urge to spend all of my money on macaroons, and instead bought jars of preserves as gifts for a couple of people.
A lot of little independent shops are popping up all over town, selling wonderful handmade things. Support your local entrepreneurs and artists this holiday season!
