Whew!  It’s that time of year again, when people begin their holiday shopping.  What better way to get a unique gift for someone special than to get something handmade and locally produced?  I love picking up gifts from craft fairs and art shows, and I have to admit I’m a bit spoiled – I can always scope out the other vendors that I’m selling with.  We all love to talk about our craft, and it adds something to the gift when you can tell the recipient exactly where it came from and how it was made.

That said, Drakestail will be making two more appearances in 2011.  On Sunday, November 27th, I’ll be at the RA Centre (map here) from 10am – 4pm.  I’ve been at this show on past years and have always found great gift ideas from the vendors.

My other appearance will be Saturday and Sunday, December 3-4th at the Shenkman Arts Centre (map here), from 11am – 5pm both days.  Baz’ART will be a new show for me, but considering how much fun their spring show has been, I can just imagine the holiday bazaar, with local artists and artisans and lots of food and activities, is going to be amazing.
