Christmas Crafts Coquitlam Port Moody Port Coquitlam

We know. We realize Remembrance Day is still more than a week away. We don’t want to be disrespectful by rushing past it to the next thing. However, craft fair season has arrived in the Tri-Cities. If you’re a lover of all things handmade, or you want to get an early start on your shopping, now is the time. Unique, local, hand-crafted items abound. Plus there are always those little gifts that come up during the holiday season for teachers, neighbours, party hosts, co-workers or even relatives popping in unexpectedly. Craft fairs are the perfect place to find one-of-a-kind, thoughtful gift items. And don’t worry – nobody will judge you if you buy something for yourself, too!
