Handmade Harvest - November 3rd & 4th - Almonte Old Town Hall

This weekend past I had the awesome opportunity to do some social media work for Handmade Harvest

For those of you who have never experienced a Handmade Harvest, it is emphatically the best craft show in the Ottawa Valley Region. This particular show had over 80 vendors spread out over two days, with over 2000 shoppers perusing and purchasing! 

To get a sense of just how insanely busy it was over the weekend here's the two days condensed into a 45 second video thanks to timelapse technology! 

Also! Apparently the Almonte Bank of Montreal stocked their ATM with $85K on Friday night, and by Sunday it was empty! Jinkies! That's a lot of handmade stuff being purchased! 

Want to know when events are happening, or when calls for vendors go out? You can 'like' Handmade Harvest on Facebook, and you can also follow them on Twitter, which will provide get up to the moment information, and the play-by-play at shows! Also, make sure you're on their mailing list so if you aren't on social media a lot you don't miss any important information.

Here's a link to all the photos I took (and then subsequently tweeted) over the course of the weekend. So many awesome vendors; so many terrifically awesome people! 

I can't wait to live-tweet the next Handmade Harvest (which is rumoured to be happening on December 1st in Carleton Place)!
