12 Days of Christmas - Day 1 - Christmas Market Guide
WELCOME TO DAYLE SHEEHAN INTERIOR DESIGN'S
12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS
It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
Thank you for being here and loving Christmas alongside me this holiday season!
The world is a little crazy and has been a little crazy for a few years now so I wanted to kick off my holiday blog series with something that’s very important to me… shopping locally!
Supporting one another is one of the biggest ways we can spread joy! By shopping from a local vendor you are directly improving the lives of your friends, family, neighbours and community.
Today I am giving you the ultimate guide to Calgary’s Christmas Markets. If you’re like me you find out about great markets and events around the city once it’s too late!
Avoid fomo and give yourself a little dose of Christmas joy while supporting local artists, creators and businesses by hitting a few of the city’s best markets!
Spruce Meadows International Market
Growing up in Okotoks this is a Christmas tradition. This market is very large and offers both indoor and outdoor shopping opportunities. Arriving at Spruce Meadows feels like you have landed at the Northpole! It's truly magical.
