LAGUNA BEACH, CALIF.--If you're looking for something that says "WOW", each and every vendor at the unique, outdoor shopping festival set in Laguna Canyon must be using pixie dust to create magical gifts. Hats, jackets, vests, scarves, beach-themed ceramic tiles, dolls, toys, games, vases, framed art, necklaces, earrings, rings, wind chimes and all sorts of things are absolutely one-of-a-kind at Winter Fantasy.
As you enter Towne Square where a huge sleigh waits for you to sit and take a family photo or Santa Claus meets adorable children in a little cottage, Victorian-dressed carolers chime in with Christmas tunes. If you go to your right, you can visit the petting zoo. If you go left, you can head for the live bands, restaurants and brews. Any direction you go, you'll find gifts to buy--there are around 170 hand-picked artisans scattered among the sawdust canyon floor, each with their own decorated art space (giant eucalyptus trees grow out of some of the vendor kiosks!)
For those who have never shopped at Winter Fantasy, this is a must see, especially as the sun goes down and the the village lights and Christmas trees create a magical glow. The location, the weather, entertainment, food, craft sessions, demonstrations, and art being created on the spot all make for an experience to behold--shopping or not!
WINTER FANTASY is held 4 weekends in November and December each year.
Also get ready for Sawdust Festival held late June through early September.
