Every family has holiday traditions that range from baking to tree-decorating. These things don’t happen until December in my house. But that doesn’t mean I’m not in the holiday spirit sooner. My mom and I have a long-standing tradition to kick off the holiday season and it involves SHOPPING!
Each year, my mom and I plan out which local craft shows we want to visit. We love purchasing beautiful handmade gifts for our family members. We have to shop for a variety of age ranges from 1 – 80 and holiday craft shows are the perfect one stop shopping. Checking off our list in one location helps reduce a lot of stress and as we all know, the holiday season can be very stressful. As much as we enjoy the actual shopping, it’s the quality time spent together that we enjoy the most. It’s just the two of us and we make a day of it.
To kick off the season, we will head to the Seasons Christmas Show at the International Centre in Mississauga, ON the weekend of November 20-22nd. I haven’t actually been to this show before so I’m quite excited to check it out and add it to our yearly roster. There’s over 300 vendors so you are guaranteed to check a few people off your list. No one will be upset if you find a few things for yourself as well! There are so many presentations going on at this show that you can really make a day of it with your shopping partner-in-crime.
