Turquoise Thursday: Turquoise Arts and Crafts Show

It seems that everywhere I look this Christmas season, I see turquoise. I don’t know if it’s because my favorite colour is turquoise, my blog’s name is Turquoise Compass, I write about something turquoise every Thursday, or because my eyes have now been trained to spot turquoise. In any case, I love seeing turquoise all around me, especially during my favorite time of the year- Christmastime. To jump start my holiday season I recently attended Moncton New, Brunswick’s annual Turner’s Christmas at the Coliseum. It would appear to me that the colour of choice this year is turquoise! I’m not just saying that because I found a few turquoise items. There were turquoise items at literally almost every booth at the event. With other 400 exhibitors at the Christmas event, I roamed through a sea of turquoise. I loved every second of it.

Here is what I found:

    • Thank you so much Greg! I had so much fun spending the day wandering around the show and talking to the vendors. I could have spent the entire weekend there. There was so much to see. I’ll be sure to post the article on the show Facebook page.

  2. I think it’s a plot. They knew that you were coming and decided to put out everything in your favorite color during your favorite time of year. So did you buy anything?

I'd love to hear from you; leave a reply!
