It’s already mid-November, and you know what that means: it’s time to start thinking about Christmas! Don’t worry, we’re just exaggerating. The overused Christmas carols and premature appearance of Santa in shopping malls is enough to make most of us feel a little crazy. On top of that, Christmas shopping is, for some people, one of the most dreaded tasks out there. However, this year Waterloo Region is offering a way to make your holiday shopping fun again! Get a jump start on your gift list (and actually enjoy yourself) at this year’s brand new market!
Etsy Holiday Market
The Etsy holiday market is the perfect opportunity to shop for creative, unique, and handmade gifts. Do you always struggle to find the perfect gift for your aunt, brother-in-law, or cousin?
