Winter Market Map
Centerpiece Square, Show[CASE], and the Photobooth
Looking for a showstopper piece for your home? Come to Centerpiece Square where you'll find paintings, sculptures, and mixed media that you can't find anywhere else. Looking to see the best of the best? Our brand new Show[CASE] area is curated with our favourite pieces by our art technican. Make sure to stop by the Photobooth while you explore to take a fun selfie and enter to win one of our giveaways.
Browse through a wide selection of framed and canvassed original artwork, including paintings, drawings, and more. This is the spot to find the perfect artwork for that niche by the stairs. Great for all budgets large or small.
Step into luxury in our refurbished Marion Nicoll Gallery, where you will find handcrafted jewelry and stylish fashion statements. Our jewelry and fibre artists only use the highest quality materials, and their artwork is sure to turn heads at your next Christmas party. As a bonus, you'll get to meet the artists behind the work and learn more about their processes.
Our popular print section has a new look! Prints have a special charm and make for great gifts. If you're looking for holiday cards, zines, or stickers, head to The Gift Box. Make sure you stop by the Printmaking and Photography sections, where you'll find high end prints with flair. Need inspiration? Come see our display wall in the Edition Pavilion and explore our print bins for the perfect print.
The Craft Corner
Don't forget Show + Sale's best kept secret: The Craft Corner in RM371. Here you'll find handmade glass and ceramics sure to delight that hard-to-buy-for person on your shopping list. Unlike industrial-made decor, each piece shows the mark of the maker and is completely unique. Our popular items, including glass ornaments and ceramic mugs, go fast so arrive early for the best selection.
