These broth­ers and sis­ters were happy to visit with Santa, who’s con­firmed his pres­ence this week­end in Stanstead, at last year’s Christ­mas Mar­ket.

If you’re look­ing for that ‘old-time’ hol­i­day shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence from the days of yore, you won’t have to look any fur­ther than the down­town Rock Is­land sec­tor of Stanstead this week­end. The sec­ond an­nual Christ­mas Mar­ket is be­ing held on Satur­day and Sun­day, Novem­ber 26th and the 27th, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, in two down­town lo­ca­tions this time, the former Sears build­ing and the former con­ve­nience store. Both lo­ca­tions are on Duf­ferin Street just a few hun­dred feet from the Cana­dian/amer­i­can bor­der, nestled among sev­eral other bou­tiques that carry a wide va­ri­ety of unique items. “We were re­ally crowded last year so we de­cided to spread out. This time we’ll have room for some ta­bles and chairs so peo­ple can stop to have cof­fee, snacks and chat,” ex­plained Bev­erly Good­sell, one of the or­ga­niz­ers of the Christ­mas Mar­ket.
