giveaway :: Circle Craft

strathconastockingsThe return of the Circle Craft Christmas Market kicks off the holiday craft fair season here in Vancouver. We couldn’t be more excited to check out over 300 BC and Canadian artisans including wordworkers, glass blowers, ceramists, clothing designers and printers, paper goods designers, painters, jewelry designers, toy makers, chocolatiers, bakers, and more.

Circle Craft is an unique BC Artist Cooperative dedicated to providing opportunities for craftspeople to connect with the community. Formed in 1972, Circle Craft has grown to become a major force in the marketing and promotion of quality craft utilizing a ‘direct from the artist’ approach.

My top 5 vendors to check out:

Banquet Atelier & Workshop – A Vancouver-based studio engaged in creating quality goods celebrating the natural world. I’ve been following them on social media for quite some time and can’t wait to check out their work in person.

Strathcona Stockings – Specializes in fine printed socks, objects and leisure wear in unique and interesting patterns painted and drawn by founder / artist Ryley O’Byrne.

Abeego – Saving food naturally, we’ve been using Abeego for years and we’re so proud of their recent brand makeover.

Hold – Focusing on small run and one of a kind objects of beauty and curiosity that explore the intersections of opposites. When I first met Maria years ago, she only concentrate on felted wool bowls, so I can’t wait to check out new line of textile necklaces.

Mellifera Bees – Distinctive, hand-crafted honey infusions of exceptional quality. Need I say more?

Want to win a pair of tickets to the show? Follow us @gotcraftmarket on Instagram for the full details! Hurry! Contest ends Wednesday, November 2nd at 12pm PST.

London Fields Shoppe Pop-Up 2.0 + Thank You!

photoTHANK YOU to all of you for another amazing show! I know that we say this after every event, but really, last weekend was truly special. After moving from the Royal Canadian Legion to the Croatian Cultural Centre to the Maritime Labour Centre (and Templeton Secondary due to the fire), we finally feel at home and it was good to see so many familiar faces and to meet new friends! To those lucky early birds, the line up for swag bags started just after 6am on both days and the last one was snatched up around 7:30am. Yeah, I told you they were * that * good!

LFSpopupFor those of you still needing to finish (or start?) your holiday shopping, we’ll be popping up at Les Amis du Fromage as we patiently wait for our final piece of paperwork from City Hall for our permanent brick and mortar space to be finally opened. We’ll be setting up shop at the “cheese place” once again with a fine selection of our favourite items including Mellifera Bees, Herbivore Botanicals, Olive Soap, Falconware, think & ink studio, Merchant and Mills, Archie’s Press, the leather satchel co, and so much more!

POP-UP in the POP-UP! From Friday, December 19th to Sunday, December 21st, Rogue Florist will be bringing some of her beautiful floral arrangements and wreaths. These will add a festive touch to your home and also make great host / hostess gifts! If you missed out at Got Craft? last weekend, you will want to make sure to pick one up!

We’re also the only shop in Vancouver to be carrying the exclusive Strathcona t-shirts hand printed by local designers, Locomotive Clothing and to be stocking danish homeware line, Rice DK! Plus, there’s CHEESE, so it’s win-win.
