Headwaters Arts is holding their Annual Artful Giving Show and Sale, a juried show of original handmade gift items, including artwork, such as jewellery, pottery, wood carvings, artisan soaps, ornaments, and much more!

Back by popular demand are the Alton Mill Artist Hand Painted Christmas Tree Ornaments.
Each ornament will be one-of-a-kind and will come in a variety of shapes and sizes costing $20 each. The proceeds from these sales will go to the Family Transition Place, a woman’s shelter in Orangeville.
