Continuing the festivities, on Saturday December 10, 2016, Focus in Toronto will host the Great Expectations Christmas Bazaar from 10AM to 4PM. The location is tentatively set for Toronto High School again (pending formal approval). In it’s first year, vendors will filled the halls, offering an assortment of locally crafted handmade items, as well as the fantastic products offered from our Direct Sale vendors. It was such a success that we are extending the hours this year to accommodate more shoppers. What better way to shop this holiday season then locally?

During the Bazaar, Focus in Toronto will offer 50/50 tickets and raffle tickets. We will be raffling off prizes donated by our crafty vendors at the end of the event. During the event we will offer a concession stand featuring items like hot dogs, hot chocolate, coffee, and delicious baked, goods that you can enjoy while doing your holiday shopping.
