A Busy Weekend of Events

There are many events going on around the province this weekend so if you live in Nova Scotia, you have plenty to keep you busy. Here are just three events I’m either involved in or wish I was involved in.

Craft Show: First up is the In Hants Craft Show at the Milford Recreation Hall, Milford Station, East Hants. The show hosts the creative works of more than sixty local crafters. You’ll find everything from quilts to cookies, from fancy hats to wooden carvings. You shop as if you’re in a gift shop, then pay for your purchase all at once at the check-out using cash, Visa or MasterCard.

This is the second year I’ve participated in the show. Last year I sold books and homemade goat milk soap. Only my books are there this year.

The hours of operation are Friday (9:00 am to 9:00 pm), Saturday (9:00 am to 5:00 pm) and Sunday (12:00 pm to 5:00 pm). I was there for more than four hours today, and a steady stream of people came and went, many carrying baskets of goodies and gifts out the door.

Fall into Books this Saturday

A wonderful first-time event is taking place in Musquodoboit Harbour this Saturday November 7th. Twenty authors are coming together for a book fair. The fair itself from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm is free. Anyone can browse through the fair, chat with authors and buy their books.

Later in the evening at 7:00 pm, several authors will read. This event costs $5.00. The money will help cover the costs of the event and perhaps go towards similar future events.

If you can make it, even for a drop-in to see what’s going on, please do. Come out and support your local authors and writers.
