Well, it’s that time of year again! The Circle Craft Christmas Market returns on November 9th kicking off the holiday craft show season in Vancouver. We are so excited to be giving away a pair of tickets to the show which was recently voted as one of the Best Artisan Market’s in the Best of Vancouver awards presented by the Georgia Straight.

Featuring more than 280 artisans from coast to coast, there is plenty to see including demonstrations and workshops (scroll to the bottom) throughout the day. A full list of participating exhibitors can be found here and I thought I would share some of my favourite picks including Fiveleft Leather, Abeego (see her at Got Craft?), Jessie Turner Designs and Bad Girl Chocolates. I’m also super excited to check out Shibang Designs who will also be at Indie I Do next year with her amazing felted bags!

    Oh my goodness! I miss Bad Girl Chocolates so much. They were a required purchase at the Vancouver Farmers’ Markets. It would be so amazing to see her again. :)

    I love this show and it would be awesome to win tickets to it!! Thanks for the chance!!

    I hope I win the tickets. I don’t go to Circle Craft every year, because I think the entry fee is expensive (versus the affordability of the Got Craft? entry fee). If I won some tickets, I’d definitely be excited to go.

    Fiveleft leather bags are so gorgeous and unique! I will definitely be going to the show. Thanks for reminding me!

    I love Circle Craft! I try to do all my holiday shopping at craft fairs. That way, I can support local crafters and give unique gifts. Free tickets would be a lovely bonus (and would mean more money left to spend on gifts!).

    I’m such a sucker for hearts. And necklaces. The heart necklaces you featured are fantastic! I can’t wait to come out, pick out one-of-a-kind gifts for my family for christmas, and maybe one or two for myself!

    Let my comment also count for the draw!

    I had to miss Circlecraft last year, because I was busy having a baby! My mom used to take me to Circlecraft as a teen, and I’m so excited to take my baby now. Can’t wait!

    I’ve been every year for the last 14 years! I always spend more than I should. I have a girlfriend visiting from Australia, a free pair of tickets would be great.

  9. Melissa

    So excited for this year’s market! One of my favourite artists/makers, Bookhou, will be there for the first time. Would love to win tickets!

    OK, so Hallowe’en is over, now it’s on to Christmas. Love Circle Craft and planning to attend again this year – it’s an annual tradition for my very best friend and I to go. Thanks for the opportunity, Lotus Events, for a chance to win.

    Circle Craft has been one of my favorite annual traditions to help kick off the holiday season. Can’t wait!

  12. Linda

    I love looking for one-of-a-kind items and Circle Craft looks like a great place to find some!

  13. Ruth Steer

    This is an event my daugter and I attend every year and we can’t wait for whatever treasures we find this year. It would be wonderful to win tickets as well.
