{handmade: harvest time}

Isn’t it great how many options there are for the non-crafty types who like to have and give crafty things? Or more like the ‘I wish I had time to do stuff like that’ types. Sure, Etsy is amazing and we’re all guilty of spending just a tiny bit of time browsing & buying on Saturday mornings but it’s kinda nice to be able to check out the item in person and meet the hard working artist behind it. 

If you’re in the Ottawa area, come by and visit Handmade Harvest this Saturday, May 3 in beautiful Almonte. It’s the brain-child of my very close friend and sister-from-another-mister Emily Arbour and her crafting partner in crime, Colleen Hewitt. 

It’s a juried show so you’ll only find the cream of the crop crafters. And if you haven’t been to Almonte before then this is a great opportunity to take a little weekend trip or drive to check out the show as well as all the other great local art and food available in charming Almonte. I’ll be there volunteering and shopping and not necessarily in that order. 

When: Saturday May 4th, 10am-4pm
Where: Almonte Agricultural Hall (map)
BONUS: The first 50 people in the door get handmade swag bags full of items from each vendor. 

Here’s a small roundup of what you’ll see this weekend.
