Circle Craft Christmas Market Ticket Giveaway!

Update*** Contest is now closed and the winner via random.org is Teya! Congratulations and I hope you enjoy the Christmas Market this year :)***

Over the years I've had a tradition with one of my longtime girlfriends of attending the Circle Craft Christmas Market in Vancouver. The first year that we went, I carried a baby in a sling and bounce and jiggled my way through the crowd while looking at the lovely artisans displays.

That same year I picked up a handmade musical owl that has been played every single night since Ben was a baby. Actually, I may have shed a little mama tear last year when I went by the stand and saw all of the latest musical owl creations. We have a blue owl and he hangs on a basket in Ben's bedroom. Each night we give him a kiss and pull the owl as we leave him to fall asleep.

This year will be our 4th annual trek to the Circle Craft Christmas Market and I am excited! It has become the unofficial kick start to the upcoming holiday season and this year I am even more in that advance planning mode with baby #2 coming along.

You can check out last years blog post about my finds and my subsequent wish list right here. I discovered LUprints and really loved the style of their local handmade textiles and I'm excited because I see that they will be this year again too!

Circle Craft Christmas Market asked if I would like to host a giveaway for my readers and I automatically said yes! This year the Christmas Market is running from November 9-13th at the Vancouver Convention Centre West. If you don't win tickets you can still buy them on line at www.circlecraft.net.

To win a pair of tickets for this years Circle Craft Christmas Market leave a comment on this blog post! A winner will be drawn on November 7th, 2011. Tickets will be available to pick up at the Will Call box on site.

I always mean to go to the market, but I have not been to one yet. Maybe this year.

This would be perfect! I have a baby due on the 9th of December so Christmas is definitely starting early this year!
