Bronze Winner Have Yourself a Gothic Little Christmas

There aren’t many things more difficult than looking forward to winter. But just as we’re readying ourselves to surrender to hibernation, the Halifax Crafters kick into overdrive to bring us tables and tables of handmade beauty via their annual Winter Market at Olympic Hall. It’s a prime place for holiday shopping—or shopping of any kind—and a great place to go to appreciate hardworking local talent. “There is an authenticity to a handmade object or work of art that you can feel when you pick it up and touch it,” says Crafter Alissa Kloet, the maker behind Keephouse. “Unlike objects made for a mass market—there is a personality that's present.”
