Unique Giving Ideas

An Alternative Gift Fair at the Tool Library 

Were you gifted a fondu set that you still haven’t gotten out of the box? Shame. Or perhaps you got your child a beautiful wooden puzzle that didn’t get the warm reception that you had anticipated?  There’s likely someone in the neighbourhood that’s looking for those exact gifts for someone on their Christmas list.  On Sunday December 8th from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. the Toronto Tool Library and Marketspace will be hosting an Alternative Gift Fair.  The idea is that you bring three new or lightly used items and exchange them for three gifts. Seems like a win-win. Check out the event Facebook page for all the details.
