The beginning of December means the start of the painful process of Christmas gift shopping for many and the reappearance of the Off Trail Artisans at Samford Village. Our entire city and surrounding suburbs have turned into a celebration of everything Christmas, which includes many handmade and handcrafted Christmas gifts, but if there's one Christmas market that makes any enthusiastic shopper hot under the collar, that is the Off Trail Artisans one day market event at Historic Farmers Hall, Samford Village.
If past open days of Samford local artisans is anything to go by, you can expect an electrifying tangle of colourful, popping artwork by the talented local artists, offering various options for that difficult person who has everything. Local artists offer a range of handmade products of Christmas-themed presents, jewellery, ceramics, textiles, original landscape paintings, original flora and fauna photographs, just to name a few.
With the artistic variety, you can expect many artistic enthusiasts, including myself, are going to this year's market, to scout out the best Christmas gift bargains. We highly recommend you pop on in early for the best gifts and the best raffle tickets for the prize of a seascape by pastellist Margaret Turner . Doors open at 9 am sharp to 4 pm at Historic Farmers Hall, Main Street, Samford Village. For further information visit www.creativesamford.com
