The Clearspring Centre Christmas Craft Fair has begun, and it’s here for the whole weekend.  

There are many different crafters that have set up booths and have poured their hearts into what they're making. 

There’s a large variety of items, from moccasins, mittens and candles, to baked goods, jewelry, and decor. 

Mona from M&M Scrapbooking is selling homemade scrapbooks, so if you have a bunch of photos you don’t know what you should do with, stop by and she’ll be happy to help. 

“We make homemade photo albums for every occasion: weddings, babies, showers, family photos. They take us quite a bit of time to make, but they are beautiful mementos for everyone.” 

Leane is another vendor who is set up at Clearspring, her stand is called At the Corner of 2nd and 2nd.  

She makes baby rattles, but with a twist.  

Leane says the idea began when she started having nieces and nephews.  

“My husband is a carpenter and I wanted something funny to give the babies, and so I started making hammer rattles, and then I added wrenches and screwdrivers, and now we've gone to baseball bats, teacups, hockey sticks and axes.” 

The vendors this year have made a large variety of fun creations to check out. 

Gerald, General Manager of the mall, says there are about 70 vendors there today. 

"We can have a full mall event, and I think that's what really made people very excited about this event, the whole mall can be full of people and we don't have to worry about counting people coming in like we had to do last year.”

It's a great time to get some Christmas gifts for your loved ones, or for yourself, with items made by local artisans.  

They also have restaurant Prairie Donair that just opened up a few days ago, so you can go shopping and try out the newest restaurant in town.
