It was a perfect weather day for the Christmas market at Graceway Gourmet yesterday. Our table was dressed in the holiday spirit with pine wreaths and capeze shell ornaments in addition to the usual goodies.
A good showing of vendors brought nice variety for shoppers.
Lucie Winton Stubbs and Emma Halliday at their tables.
Melissa Willcocks of Orion Creations shared a table with Paradise Arts Ceramics.
Sara Kauffman was all smiles in her elf outfit for the Middle Caicos Co-Op table.
Chrystel Loyer Kendrew had made beautiful handmade cards with her photographs especially for the holiday season.
Atelys Handcrafted jewelry was a very popular table, anything in her collections would have made for a special stocking surprise. The whole day was great fun, so good to see so many creative people under the same tent with everyone was in the holiday spirit! Shoppers should feel great about choosing local products made by local people and the vendors should feel good about a portion of proceeds benefiting local charities (this market went to the Kidney Foundation).
This evening please support our TCI youth at the Edward C. Gartland Youth Centre
for their 3rd Anniversary Party. I have had the great pleasure of witnessing many of their performances such as this
over the last three years and they never disappoint. Please see the press release below for more information.
