The weather outside might be frightful so it’s time to get inside to the delightful Make It Show! The popular Canadian craft fair is making another stop in Calgary just in time for the Christmas season. From Thursday, December 6 to Sunday, December 9, over 130 local artists and makers will be on hand at the Make It Calgary show. The event will be hosted at the newly renovated Deerfoot City (formerly Deerfoot Mall) which will give you a chance to check out another Calgary attraction while in the area.

What kind of things will you find at Make It Show Calgary? Tons of great gift options from jewelry, clothing, art, food, décor, baby items and other accessories. And if you’re like me while holiday shopping, you end up with a 1:1 gift ratio while buying for others so really it’s just a major win for you, your friends and family and all the local businesses you’re supporting (at least that’s what I tell myself).

    My daughter-in-law has a newborn and does not get the chance to get out very often lately. I would love to win passes for this event so I may take her. I am currently out of work so winning some passes would allow me to take her “out on the town.”
