Twice a year, students at the Alberta College of Art + Design hold a show and sale featuring their art, craft and design. (Last year, the Star Wars storm trooper wearing red flannel footie pyjamas print I picked up for my eight-year-old was a big hit.) There’s a wild and wonderful variety of art on hand: psychedelic paintings, oversize prints, jewelry, pottery, you name it. And this week’s sale includes something new: guided tours of student exhibitions throughout the campus. Those in the know tend to show up early for the best selection, but remember, these are students and sometimes they run on their own time. The sale runs from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 22 and Friday, Nov. 23, and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 24. — Ruth Myles
