Busy Hands gift and craft sale 100% Made in the County


Vicki Emlaw and Bay Woodyard

Busy Hands is the largest 100 per cent “made in Prince Edward County” annual Christmas Gift and Craft sale.

This Dec. 12th and 13th marks its 15th year of offering fabulous, locally-made treasures to its ever increasing number of devoted attendees.

Busy Hands proudly features more than 70 vendors selling 100 per cent handmade items from deliciously prepared food to healing stone jewelry, beewax candles, heirloom seeds, beautiful ceramics, ornate iron work, tasty preserves, handmade prints, hand woven textiles, organic fresh produce, expressive artwork, crafty ornaments, yummy maple syrup, designer clothing, handmade quilts, unique knitting, natural body care, and scrumptious hot sauce…all with an accent on the natural bounty of Prince Edward County.

It all began in 2000 when two young female entrepreneurs, and long-time PEC residents, Vicki Emlaw, of Vicki’s Veggies, and Bay Woodyard, of Honey Pie Hives and Herbals, held their first holiday craft show in Vicki’s kitchen to help pay their rent.

To make it more of an event, they invited a handful of talented, local family members and crafty friends to join in and sell their handmade wares as well.

Busy Hands was a hit and has grown every year as it continues to add inspired local talent showcasing the unique “County style” of designing, creating, painting, growing and baking handmade products.

The Wellington Essroc Arena is Busy Hands’ 5th move in 15 years and its second year at this venue.

Busy Hands offers family, friends, neighbours and shoppers who gather from all corners of Ontario a genuinely warm County experience as they mingle with each other and connect with the local artisans whose hands have been so busy all year.
