This weekend, get yourself a cup of hot cocoa and make a start on your gift-giving list. That way, you’ll be ready for three November 16 craft shows in the Wasaga Beach area. First stop: Wasaga’s RecPlex, 1724 Mosley Street, for a tour of the goodies at the 69th Annual Christmas Craft & Bake Sale. Next, you’ll find one-of-a-kind gifts and treats by local artists and culinary artisans at the Beaver Valley Community Centre in Thornbury. If you’re hungry, try the prepared lunch, cider and hot chocolate. Over 100 local vendors will show off their wares at the 5th Annual Christmas at Blue Craft & Gift Show at the Blue Mountain Conference Centre, 242 Jozo Weider Blvd, Blue Mountain Village. Local is the way to shop!
