Quality Hand Made Goods, Crafted With Love
For the 26th year in a row, out in Chestermere (about a 15 minute drive from Marlborough Mall), there’s an all day artisan Christmas craft market hosted by Crazy4Crafts. It’s not just limited to Christmas crafts, there’s all sorts of things for the kitchen, your home, office, kids, wardrobe, and so much more – plus you might just find that perfect gift for someone. The members behind Crazy4Crafts are super organized, and they vet each vendor ensuring there aren’t too many of one type of product, like several tables full of jewelry. A good variety of things to check out! Something for everyone. And best of all, it’s free with just a food bank donation.

What To Expect At The Market
Lots of people with tables, selling a wide variety of things they’ve made themselves, by hand. No junk. Nothing from a factory in China, everything created by people, for people. Here’s a video from Shaw TV (RIP) from the people behind the market, and all the info.
