Handcrafted holiday shopping at the Craft Nova Scotia Christmas Show

Don't miss the season's biggest exhibit of fine craft Nov. 17-19

By |

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: the 42nd Craft Nova Scotia returns to the Cunard Event Centre at Pier 23 on the Halifax waterfront.

This is the perfect opportunity to find original, contemporary and locally made gifts made by current juried Craft Nova Scotia members. In addition to vendors, you’ll find demonstrations by fibre artists, wood turners, printmakers, metal workers, glass artists, and many more throughout the weekend. See the demonstration schedule at the east end of the Cunard Centre.

Visit East Coast Living at the 9th Annual Designer Interiors Talk Showcase featuring the finest in locally handcrafted architectural and design elements, home décor and visual art. Our cozy demonstration space at booth 701 will show you how to incorporate fine craft from exhibitors at the show into your home décor.

Once again, Attica Home Furnishings will supply the furniture for our demo space. We can’t wait to show you the modern and eye-catching items they picked for us this year.

On Friday at 2 p.m. meet Nicole Mensour, founder of Maddex Interiors. She’ll talk about how to make your house feel like home after a renovation. She says her clients often say that their space no longer feels cozy after a big renovation. Using textiles and pieces from the show, Nicole will highlight you how to bring personality to your space, while keeping it organized. This is her fourth year appearing at Designer Interiors Talk.

Attica Co-founder Suzanne Saul will be in our demonstration space on Saturday at 2 p.m., talking about 2017 trends in modern design. She recently attended the High Point Market in North Carolina, the world’s largest furniture trade show. Her Designer Interiors Talk will focus on what she learned, and how to combine the latest in furniture design with bespoke and handmade items. “No room is complete without something handmade,” she says.

This year’s event runs Nov. 17-19, open Friday from 10 a.m.–9 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m.–5 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Admission is $7 for adults, $6 for students and seniors, $9 for a weekend pass, $20 for a family pass (2 adults/2 students). Groups of seven pay only $40, so gather up your friends and head to the show. Learn more on the Craft Nova Scotia website.
