$5 for Contemporary Craft-Fair Visits (Up to $10 Value)

More than 140 quirky, talented designers show off their wares at the Make It! The Handmade Revolution craft fair, which runs April 19–21. Festival visitors can tune their ears to music, eat snacks from local vendors, and bid in a silent auction that supports the efforts of Union Gospel Mission.This Groupon includes two admissions, which can be used by one person on two days or two people on one day, and kids aged 12 and younger are admitted for free. The craft fair takes place at the Croatian Cultural Center. Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.

Make It Productions

Run by founder and designer Jenna Herbut, Make It Productions's 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 savory 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.
