Get ready for the season by visiting one of the many 2016 Christmas Markets and Craft Fairs in the Halifax-Dartmouth area. And get ready for winter by bundling up in some warm winter-wear from Mark’s (in this guide, we feature cozy jackets for Mom, and practical winter boots for Dad). Happy winter shopping, Halifax!

October is a wet month. Splash out in the men’s Portage Low Cut Winter Boot from Wind River. These trendy boots are great for the fall and spring season, and far more fashionable than your classic Wellington!
