The Nutcracker Market opened today for the first time ever, the first day of the first edition of what I hope will become a Montreal holiday tradition. The Grands Ballets Canadiens are behind this wonderful, tasteful show that offers sooooo many good things! Below is a picture of the Dot & Lil booth, which I'm sharing with the talented jewelery designer Sophie Lihn Tran who I've featured on my blog before here.


I've created an exclusive soap in limited quantities specifically for the Nutcracker market. Inspired by the Sugar Plum Fairy and packaged like no Dot & Lil soap you've ever seen before, this soap smells of sweet, light fresh flowers with a creamy finish. It's a delicate and sophisticated scent created to celebrate an elegant and classic ballet! There are only 20 bars of this soap, and there won't be more! They sell for $10 and for the moment are available exclusively at the Marché Casse-Noisette.



You can read about the market and learn about the 70+ other vendors at www.marchecassenoisette.com. The Nutcracker Market is open November 25th to December 5th at the Palais des Congrès in downtown Montreal. Come for a visit and support the Grands Ballets Canadiens and the important work they do! There are gift workshops, storytelling times, cookie tastings (yes, you read that right!) and don't miss the Candy Land workshop and tasting this Sunday at 1 pm!

Until December 5th, 2010:
Monday to Wednesday 11 am to 7 pm
Thursday and Friday 11 am to 8 pm
Saturday and Sunday 11 am to 5 pm
