$4 for Craft-Fair Visit for Two (Up to $10 Value)

More than 140 quirky, talented designers show off their wares at the Make It! craft fair, which runs November 8–11. Festival visitors can tune their ears to live music such as the acoustic melodies of Katie Rox, eat snacks from local vendors, and bid in a silent auction that supports the efforts of Union Gospel Mission. This Groupon includes admission for all four days of the event, and kids aged 12 and younger are admitted for free. The craft fair takes place at The Croatian Culture Centre. Though Make It! The Handmade Revolution sometimes features a discounted rate online, this Groupon still presents the best deal available.

Make It! The Handmade Revolution

Run by designer Jenna Herbut and her brother Chandler, also a designer, the fairs showcase the work of more than 140 Canadian artisans and designers at events Merge magazine has described as "the craft sale for the next generation." The laid-back emporium—that has received tons of positive press—thrums with the energy of desingers such as Eve and Enoch, adhesif clothing, and MMS Brittles as they enthusiastically promote their wares. Music serenades ears wandering between booths, and homemade creations from vendors such as Monkey Butter sate hunger with snacks that are as sweet and savoury as a love poem written in worcestershire sauce.

As an extension of her mission to improve designers' livelihoods, Jenna channels her background in marketing into a parallel venture Make It! University, which helps artisans hone their business models.
