Have you guys checked out @thisopenspace? @thisopenspace helps clients find flexible space and open underutilized space for temporary use. This is perfect for people looking to set up shop, but don’t want to commit to a multi-year lease or want to test out their ideas and see if a certain neighbourhood is a good fit for them. Win / Win, right?
We’re super excited to have the opportunity to open up our Strathcona shop space to you fine folks! London Fields Shoppe is available to rent for workshops, yoga sessions, tastings, meetings, photo shoots, and other special events. Located in the Heatley Block on the corner of East Hastings and Heatley, you can find our full listing on @thisopenspace here.
Got Craft? will be popping back up at West Elm and West Elm Market not once, but twice this month! Featuring five Got Craft? spring vendors at each event, read below for the list of participating makers!
Each handmade vendor will bring a selection of goods including homewares, scarves, candles, screen printed items, jewelry, prints, soap, florals, and paper goods. This is the perfect opportunity to say hello to some of your favourite makers and get a preview of the upcoming spring event. See you there!

THANK 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!
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!
London Fields Shoppe offers a smorgasbord of stationery, homewares, prints, vintage, and more. You’ll find tons of treats for both stocking stuffers and as presents under the tree. 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.
A huge thank you to our amazing team of vendors, volunteers, and sponsors for working so hard to make Got Craft? such a success! Also a big thank you to everyone that came out to shop and support local indie business. We love our community of supporters! If you missed out on the fun or are looking for more, the London Fields Shoppe Pop-Up is open until Monday, December 23rd.
