Come celebrate Christmas in July with us at Makers’ Market all this month!  Get an early start on all your gift gathering.  Shopping at a leisurely pace in warm summer weather is so much more pleasant, don’t you think?  While you’re buying your fresh produce at the Farmers’ Market just pop across the street into the Guild Hall to see us and discover our group of craftspeople and artisans.  We’re here every Friday morning throughout the year.

By the way, there’s a rumour that Mrs. Santa Claus may make an appearance on July 2.  Come join us!

We at Makers’ Market wish everyone a very Happy Easter Day!

Because this Friday, April 2, 2010, is Good Friday, there will be no Makers’ Market nor outdoor Farmers’ Market on that day.  The good news is that these two markets will be instead held on Thursday, April 1, 2010.

Not only is Makers’ Market on Thursday this week, but we are changing back to our summer hours of 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.  We hope to see you then!

An Easter golf bag from Yesteryear

Several of our booths are looking decidedly spring-like lately.  Last Friday Yesteryear had a very Easter-ish golf bag arrangement, complete with bunny.  Joyce tells me that all the embellishments can easily be removed and this pink bag is very usable.  It even includes some clubs!

Smock-It has something very different – smocked Easter egg decorations in various colours.  Of course they also have lovely Easter dresses for that special little girl.

Uniquely different - a smocked Easter egg!

Our quilting lady is currently displaying some delightful spring designs to dress up your home.

There’s lots more to see, and now with our extended summer hours, more time to see it all!

Welcome to Makers’ Market at the Guild Hall in Port Colborne, Ontario, Canada!

We’re a group of craftspeople, artists, bakers and artisans, people who imagine, design, make and do.  We change daydreams into reality.  We work with our hands, our minds and our hearts.  We handle flours and flowers, beads and threads, oils and cloth, yarns and glass, stones and butter, stuffing and clay, socks and silver.  Creative juices are freely flowing and boredom is unknown!

Every Friday morning the Guild Hall at 72 Charlotte Street is filled with laughter, chatter and friendliness.  We hope you’ll come over to visit us!  Take some time to enjoy a coffee and maybe a breakfast in The Hub, the Guild Hall’s restaurant.

Our creations will keep you warm and make you look cool.  They’ll feed and satisfy your insides.  They’ll clean and beautify your outsides.  You’ll find bling for home and body.  We cater to playfulness and elegance, from the ridiculous to the sublime.  We provide for people and pets.

Whether you react with lively conversation or with silent contemplation, we hope you enjoy Friday mornings at Makers’ Market as much as we do!
