by Reverend Aitor, Impressario:

The Christmas shopping season is already upon us. And while it had been decreed some time ago that the M.S.Co. was to all but pull out of the craft fair game, Christmas is a holy cash cow and the greedy Misanthropes are loath to relinquish their piece of the action.

And so, it's been decided that the Company would accept a very generous invitation from its new best buddies at Kid Icarus to partake in this year's Handmade Holiday extravaganza.

The one-day gift show grants Torontonians the opportunity to buy directly from local creators of high-quality handcrafted goods, such as paper products, poster art, soft toys, children’s clothes, knitwear, jewellery and more. Crafters flock from all parts of the city for a day of selling and swapping goods. Shoppers visiting the event are treated to mystery loot bags at the door, raffles throughout the day, and of course, a piece of artistry with every purchase they make.

This is one of those events that is so impeccably curated that the Misanthropes are left scratching their heads as to how exactly they managed to be invited to participate. Please note that there is a two dollar entrance fee. Five dollars if you wish to grab a mystery loot bag, while quantities last.
