To everyone that braved the snowy weather to help us celebrate the 20th Got Craft? last weekend, THANK YOU! We never thought that we would be celebrating our 10 year milestone and are so thankful of the community (both locally and worldwide) that we are a part of. Big XO to all of our vendors (past and present), attendees, sponsors and community partners, and all the other handmade shows that gave us a shout out over the weekend. Not to sound like a broken record, but it truly does take a village and we wouldn’t be here without your support.
Mark your calendars >>> Got Craft? Spring Edition is on Saturday, May 6th and Sunday, May 7th, 2017 and we’re headed back to VANCOUVER! We are finalizing our spring vendor applications, so please check back later this month!
As we sort the bags of swag that we have collected so far, here’s a quick sneak peek of some of the items making their way into the Got Craft? swag bags! Each participating vendor is asked to contribute a minimum of 30 items which are than randomly distributed into 100 tote bags that are hand printed by Locomotive Clothing with an exclusive image designed by The Beautiful Project (each tote is worth $20 alone)!
Be one of the first 50 on Saturday or Sunday to receive a FREE tote! Make sure to arrive early though! Die hard fans have been known to wait in line equipped with activites, hot beverages, and blankets!
