It's that time of year again! The Spring Got Craft? event is just around the corner and this year, we are turning 5 years old! Hip hip hip hooray! Thank you to all of our lovely vendors, sponsors and attendees. We started 5 years ago brand spanking new to the handmade community and just started tacking some pieces of paper with pull tabs at local coffee shops asking if anybody wanted to join our fair and here we are now!
There are lots to do at our next show including a complimentary D.I.Y. lounge hosted by Spool of Thread to make your own projects, tasty treats by Bake Sale Baking Co. and The Gluten Free Epicurean and veggie pakoras by Varinicey parked outside. DJ Duff will be providing the tunes and of course, over 55 handmade artists including our friends Maker Faire Vancouver, Collage Collage and Barefoot Contessa (selling their own handmade goods)!
Oh! If you haven't heard, we are beyond thrilled to have Etsy sign on as a new sponsor < insert cartwheels and sparklers > . This has been in the works for almost two years and according to my research, we are the first handmade market in Canada to have their support. Yippee!
Here are the details... See y'all there!
