The Cottage will be brimming with an assortment of affordable, one-of-a-kind items from artwork, original fashions, fine jewellery, home and garden décor, natural body care products, gourmet treats, vintage collectables and much more.

The Cottage is open Saturday, Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 18 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It opens again on Friday, Nov. 23 from 6–9 p.m., Saturday, Nov 24 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, Nov 25 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
