Fall Craft Shows: Some impressions

Etsy Market at Evergreen Brick Works, Toronto

On October 25, Paper Turns returned to Evergreen Brick Works for its second Etsy Market. 40 crafters offered a great range of local artisanal products to an audience of young and old, while the weekly Farmers' Market offered local produce and yummy food. The event was in the open air (only with a roof over our heads), and everyone was grateful for the sunshine and relatively warm air, something we couldn't take for granted in late October...

As always: greeting cards for all occasions


Paper Turns was offering holiday cards for early Birds and a whole range of new card sets. Many customers commented on what they deemed the "prettiest sign-up sheet ever", where customers can provide their email addresses in order to receive regular updates on Paper Turns' craft show appearances and special sales. 

The next event for Paper Turns at Evergreen Brick Works will be the Holiday Container Market on December 19. Stay tuned for more details.

One Stop Shopping at the Newmarket Community Centre

On November 7, Paper Turns participated in a special fundraiser for the Canadian Mental Health Association (York and South Simcoe) at the Community Centre in Newmarket. More than 40 vendors set up shop for this great cause, children were entertained by a balloon artist, Frozen's Elsa, and a face painter, and the supportive customers enjoyed the raffle, the auctions, and some local poutine. They didn't hold back with their donations, so the organizer was able to raise over $6,000. It was a fun day, and a great opportunity to contribute to an important cause.
