Often Imitated – Never Duplicated: Ladyfest Ottawa’s “Not Your Grandma’s Craft Sale” is back!
Ladyfest Ottawa presents a holiday craft sale like no other! Featuring the hip, original work of 60 artists and crafters!

Not Your Grandma’s Holiday Craft Sale takes place Saturday December 6th, 10am to 5pm at Jack Purcell Community Center, 320 Elgin St (at Lewis)

Are you looking to avoid the mall and instead find hip and unique gifts?  Not Your Grandma’s Craft Sale is an edgy, DIY twist on the traditional craft bazaar.  From “cute but evil” accessories, handcrafted jewellery, silk-screened hoodies and underwear, to funky baby diapers, airbrushed shoes, comics and chocolate truffles, this craft sale is the source for one-of-a-kind gifts!
Our sale features a majority of local crafters from the Ottawa-Gatineau region, with additional crafters hailing from Montreal, Toronto, Kingston, Peterborough, Perth and Golden Lake.

In recognition of December 6th as a national day of remembrance and action to end violence against women; a portion of the proceeds will go to the Lyallen Hayes Memorial Fund, a local charity that supports women whose lives have been affected by violence.
