Beat the November Blahs


Calling all Moms.
Here is a must do.

Ignore those November blahs and get in a bit of retail therapy to prepare for the holidays. We’re not talking about the mall kind either – we know a place that sells truly unique items for mom and kids.

Get yourself to the Children’s Trunk Show where you can spend some money on yourself and on other (smaller) people in your life for a head start on the shopping season.

The Children’s Trunk Show is a celebration of women entrepreneurs who embrace womanhood, motherhood and sisterhood. Their cooperative collection is themed for children, with a smattering of hip adult items to let mom indulge a bit as well. All the special offerings combine creativity and flair with excellence in quality and workmanship.

Among the 20+ amazing vendors, expect to find monogrammed children’s pillows and blankets from The Muskoka Bedding Company, imported hand knit & smocked dresses by cooljule, indispensable and adorable onesies, tee shirts, & hats from Twiglet, and contemporary children’s club style furniture by A-List.

Look for out-of-the-box gift ideas from Bebe Posh and exquisite handmade jewelry for kids and grown-ups by Gemmies & Suetables, customized lootbag consultants from Contents, child-oriented first aid kits from Kits for Kids, and belly, newborn & children’s photography by Tara Sinclair Hingco Art & Design.

This year’s show also introduces some great guest speakers, so you can learn about important family topics while you shop (now, that’s productive!):

Lulu Cohen-Farnell – Real Food for Real Kids
Fri Nov 11: 10am-12pm & Sat Nov 12: 1pm-3pm

Dr. Michelle Bodner (Ella Centre’s Naturopathic Doctor) – Reducing Toxins in the Home
Saturday November 12: 10am–12pm

Do bring cash and cheques – the only plastic you need is the bag full of fab finds you’ll go home with.
