A holiday shopper's complaint is one of long-standing ~Author Unknown
It's that time again when many of us turn our thoughts towards the holidays and go in search of that perfect, thoughtful gift for someone special. We've all felt the stress of holiday shopping at some point - so we think we all need a little reminder to throw cares away. Holiday markets are great for adding a dash of cheer to the whole shopping experience. So take a roadtrip to one of these markets, find some Nova Scotia apple cider to sip on, meet some local artisans and enjoy.
Of course we've got lots of shops to visit too! Visit downtown Halifax for some shopping under the stars and be sure to visit the local shops in any of the small towns you visit, where you are sure to find a locally made treasure or two!
A Christmas wonderland sparkles like a jewel in the crown of a town that has centuries of seafaring history. Thousands of LED lights are wrapped around the branches of the tall ancient trees in Yarmouth's Frost Park. Giant presents are stacked at the base of the 150-year-old, three tier fountain, draped in a mantle of gauzy brightness. Even the gazebo, where Th'YARC's strolling carolers charm the crowds, beams golden in the landscape.
From the parades to the lights on the trees, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around the province. And that means finding gifts to go under your Nova Scotian tree. Our favourite way to shop for our loved ones is to shop local and find things that are uniquely Nova Scotian to stuff in their stockings.
