A wide variety of beautiful and unusual items were on display during the 23rd annual Festive Craft Market in Bible Hill, Nova Scotia.
More than 75 exhibitors offered their creations for sale during the show, which was held in the athletic centre at the Nova Scotia Agricultural College.
The items which could be purchased included knit mittens and slippers made from recycled sweaters, wooden toys, pottery, photos, stained glass, paintings, natural wreaths, jewellery, soaps and aromatherapy bath products, dog beds, Victorian crocheted ornaments, stone items, wooden pens, soy candles, wool comforters and bird houses.
There were also tasty treats and gift ideas such as home baking, fudge, hand made chocolates, barley candy, jams, pickles, wine and honey products.
Many shoppers poured through the doors to pick up Christmas gifts and things for themselves.
"I got quite a bit of my Christmas shopping done and I got some nice things for my home," said Jane MacIntosh. "I got more than I planned - like hand-made tree ornaments - but the things I saw were just too hard to resist."
