With only a week till Halloween and our Hamilton Spectator is preparing the community for the dozens of Christmas Bazaars. Advertised in the Tuesday Oct 22 paper, there is a list that is expanded further on the Spec.com site. From October 25 right until December 7, people can shop for arts, crafts, and homemade ANYTHING for the holiday season. I am all for supporting our community (I help my mother at the Canadian Martyr’s Parish sale every year **Nov. 22 & 23 – located 38 Emerson St. Friday, 4 to 8 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.**), but Halloween hasn’t even passed. Well, I will wait till after Halloween before I start worrying about my Christmas shopping, but for those who like to plan ahead, enjoy the Christmas Bazaar List from The Spec.Com for the list of dates, locations, and a helpful map.
Happy Halloween!! Oh, and have a Merry Christmas (early)!
