While in town, shop early for the whole family, for the office, for friends (and for yourself!) at the Salon des métiers d’arts du Québec. It is the most important professional exhibition-sale in the province. The wonderful fair full of hand-made works has praise from all who visit. It has been a go-to gift-buying place for locals for years, and visitors have quickly discovered it. You can choose from a vast array of made-with-love-and talent pieces. Art, beads and bracelets, decorative objects, ecological works, foie gras, jams, kids’ clothing, lamps, sculptures, wine..basically almost everything and anything one might need to wrap. Wait. No need to wrap. A booth at the Salon will do this for you…easy, peasy.
CELEBRATING THE HOLIDAYS . Nativity scenes from Montreal’s St. Joseph Oratory, created especially for the Salon. Different cultures from different eras interpret the birth of Christ in an individual way.
GREAT NEWS FOR PARENTS. Not only is there a little garderie (day care) staffed with professionals for children 3 years and less, but there are kid-friendly activities.
FOR CHILDREN. Saturday December 11 from 1 – 4:30. There are stories, workshops, make-up booths, shows, fashions and events.
