I liked the variety of the goods that were offered. I have to say I mainly supported the high school students - so many dreams for the future! Good luck to them!

Be sure to give yourself a generous amount of time to view all the amazing makers. Also make sure you come hungry and bring cash for the local food trucks that are parked outside!!

I always go with the intention of buying a gift for myself of someone else. I haven't left empty handed yet! There's always a great selection of finely crafted products.

The show was great. Parking a bit expensive. Maybe a few too many soaps although I did buy a shaving one. I'll go again next year.

From Our Editors

Run by designer Jenna Herbut and her brother Chandler, also a designer, the fairs showcase the work of more than 200 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 designers such as Sugar + Candy, Faye Tality Couture, and Prickly Potter Ceramics as they enthusiastically promote their wares. Music serenades ears wandering between booths, and homemade creations from vendors such as My Chocolate Tree 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.
