Support local businesses and get your Christmas shopping done
With less than two months to Christmas, it can only mean one thing - Christmas markets are back! Ever since experiencing Christmas Markets in Europe, I have fallen in love with them as they are the perfect way to get those gifts for those hard to buy for people in your life while also getting into the Christmas spirit. So here is a list of some of the Christmas Markets that are happening around this year, and with so many markets to choose from, you're sure to find one to suit your schedule!
Held at the Canberra Potters in Watson, this fair will be selling the wares of Canberra Region potters and ceramicists. Along with the fair, the Canberra Potters Gift shop will also be open. So if your after locally made ceramic art and pottery, then this is the fair for you!
