Buying Handmade #madebyhandshow

Did you know Canada.. we think buying handmade is awesome! You not only know exactly what's in the product but you also know the hands that made it and I think that is something to cherish and be proud of.

At the Made By Hand Show coming up in April at the International Centre in Mississauga you will be introduced to Art vendors, Candle vendors, Fabric vendors, Jewellery vendors, Food vendors - you name, the Made By Hand Show has it!

Athena's Diaper Cakes

Why shop handmade? As I mentioned not only do you know exactly what you're getting but you are supporting local Canadians who work hard at their crafts. The baby blanket, soap, purse, doll and more will not have been made by a machine, it will have been made at home, by someone who is proud of their work and getting you the best quality item.

I was reading an article by show manager Jacqueline Hunter who mentioned how many compliments she received on a handmade necklace she has. The unique one-of-a-kind gifts you can pick up from local vendors are beautiful and truly unique which is really cool.

LaLa Soap

Some of last year vendors include businesses that we've discussed on Did you know Canada before - like LaLa Soap - creator of beautiful soap, that smell amazing and made with natural ingredients.

We can't wait to hear about this years vendors!
