Eckville residents get in early Christmas shopping at market

A market goer discusses a product while at Eckville’s Christmas Market Saturday morning. While there where many hand made goodies, there were also a number of small businesses, such as ones that sell spices.
Eckville residents piled into the Community Centre, Nov. 24, to take a look and purchase a variety of homemade goods just in time for Christmas. Some items available for purchase included homemade pillow cases, many with Christmas-y themes. Photos by Megan Roth/Eckville Echo
A display of wooden signs took up a large area near the back wall of the Community Centre and drew a lot of attention from the market attendees.
