Mix those ideas together and you get the Oh My! Handmade Holidays Giveaway and two covet worthy gift basket prizes filled with handmade goodness and valued at around $950!

    The Mount Uniacke Wishgivers help those in need in our community. It is amazing to see the amount of people that come out at the Christmas time fundraiser. They don’t have a website that I could find but here is some info that I could find in the local newsletter.

  • Jennifer

    What a fantastic bunch of goodies you have put together, and I love the “pay it forward” idea of helping out needy charities over the holidays, well done!
    I have been cruising the vendors sites and having a great time seeing how talented they all are! Sweet Harvey has a jersey scarf that I have a feeling I will be purchasing shortly, and the adorable alphabet shaped crayons at Crayon Couture would help my little kiddo learn her letters and doodle at the same time!
    Thanks so much for sharing these great vendors. Merry Christmas!

  • Jennifer

    My hometown of St. George, New Brunswick was recently flooded when the area received over 170mm of rain. The Maguagadavic River, which runs through town, was higher than it has ever been in living memory. I’ve been sitting, high and dry in my home in Nova Scotia, looking at photos of friends’ homes under water.

    I’m planning to send donations home with my dad after the holidays:

  • kerri

    They are all so super lovely, I have just spent precious “getting ready for the dinner tonight” time checking them out.I Sweet Harvey (love the name) and magpie patterns are my faves.
