There will be a lot happening at Square One in Mississauga this holiday season, and festive shoppers should be very happy to hear that the shopping centre’s Merry & Bright Holiday Market is returning for another year.
The market, which will open on Nov. 29 and run until Dec. 24, will take shape on level 2, right next to Uniqlo.
The market will offer locally-crafted gifts, DIY workshops and whimsical candy stations.
This year, shoppers can purchase goods from such vendors as Catalyst & Co., C.J.Rocker, Coral Essence, First Batch, Fleur de Reine, Little by Little, Mango Like Dessert, mojja Socks, Nav K Collection, Nuchay, Nuworld Botanicals, PalettAmerica, Tenfed, The AG Studio, Unicorn Toys and Up To The Time.
The market will also offer some DIY workshops by Embiria and Muse Studios. The various Embiria workshops will walk attendees through the creation of holiday macrame wreaths, greeting cards, ornaments and scrunchies, calligraphy, gold hoop holiday wreaths, vision boards, holiday wreath watercolour painting and watercolour calligraphy.
Other DIY holiday pop-up workshops will be presented by Nuworld Botanicals, and attendees can also attend a Chatters Holiday Hair Master Class with celebrity stylist Cindy Duplantis.
The market will also offer gift wrapping and a complimentary coat and parcel check.
Social media fans should also note that there will be a contest. Attendees who take a photo at the market and share and tag @shopsquareone on Instagram and use the hashtag #thatONEmoment will be entered into a prize draw to win one of several prizes. Some possible prizes include three $100 Ikea gift cards, one Smeg stand mixer, 10 Annie Sloan mini project packs, and Chatters products.
