If you have been reading for a while, you will know that I love Craftadian shows. For most things, we need to go into Toronto but Hamilton has a thriving indie maker scene and several craft shows a year. Craftadian’s Made in Hamilton is the next one and less than a week away. So what is on my list to check out? Some of my favourite makers will be there so I will definitely be visiting them. But the August Made In Hamilton show also includes 30 new vendors to check out. So be sure to check back to see what I pick up from them.
Beauty Options at Craftadian Made In Hamilton
Holly Berry is one of the first brands I fell in love with at Craftadian and the brand has come a long way since my original review. Holly now makes makeup too. The brand is affordable and high quality with good ingredients you can actually pronounce. Holly also made me manicure bombs after my old maker took a break from her store and now sells them online and will likely have some at Craftadian.
What to try? Remedy bath bombs, manicure bombs, mineral eye-shadows and her milk chocolate body lotion!
The Ellingood Soap Co makes 100% natural soaps and skincare suitable for sensitive skin. The Rosemary Lemon Balm Sugar Scrub I tried when I reviewed the brand is definitely my fave. It lasts even in a shower thanks to the way they mix the scrub with thick moisturizer so it does not break down quickly.
Small Batch Soaps makes unicorn soaps! You know I love anything unicorn so I was immediately in love with the brand. I tried a few soaps since my unicorn one just sits there looking pretty. On my list to try is their Black Magic Unicorn and Shark Fin soaps.
New to me is Stephanie St Co Soap & Skincare. I plan to try a Chocoholic bath bomb and one of her soap cupcakes. Not a lot of beauty brands this time but on to some other fun brands.
Food & Drink at Craftadian Made In Hamilton
It has been a while since I tried any Wild Heather teas. I loved this Belgian Chocolate one I tried when I first discovered the brand. It doesn’t look like they still make it but on my list to try is Campfire S’mores and Summer Strawberry.
Not quite food or drink but I have to try out the new selection of mugs from Kitties and Cabernet. Jaime makes some really cute mugs, prints and now makes wine glasses and tshirts.
For some snacks, I intend on checking out De-Liz-ious Treats or Dimkin’s Crepe for something sweet and some of the food trucks. I might treat myself to some flavoured or loaded fries from Prince Edward Fries!
Other Stuff On My List For Craftadian Made In Hamilton
Cards and prints from Backyard Press & Paper, Cassia Bommarito and Glib Designs. Of course Pink & Petals, who always has the cutest cards with unique messages. They have an anniversary card that says “Congrats for not killing each other” that I love for friends.
Candles from Deliciously Wick’t who make Unicorn Bark wax melts! Although they are featured in the upcoming MELA Bath subscription box so have to take it easy. I have a lot of candles to use before I am supposed to buy more, but wax melts don’t count right? New to me is The Wellness Den who sell a Eucalyptus candle that might be great for winter cold and flu season.
