You know it’s that time of year again when the Got Craft? window display pops up at Barefoot Contessa! A big thank you to the lovely ladies at Barefoot Contessa for always creating such a stunning display. We couldn’t be happier with all of their hard work as well as to all the vendors that took the time out of their busy holiday prep schedules to participate. The images above are just some of the sneak peeks that I took during the set up. Stop by the Barefoot Contessa at 1928 Commercial Drive in Vancouver to see a fine selection of handmade items you will find at the show!
Saturday, December 8th and Sunday, December 9th, 2012
Croatian Cultural Centre, 3250 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
We truly believe it takes a village and Got Craft? is no exception. Sending out big hugs and hi-5’s to our friends and sponsors today, because we truly couldn’t produce one of the most anticipated craft fairs in Vancouver without you!
The Got Craft? window displays are back at Barefoot Contessa just in time for the holiday show coming up on Sunday, December 4th from 10:00am to 5:00pm at the Royal Canadian Legion on Commercial Drive, Vancouver (2205).
Thanks so much to Eva, Lauren and Kris for all of their hard work! If you are in the Vancouver area, please pop on by to Barefoot Contessa and check out the goodies in person at 3715 Main Street or 1928 Commercial Drive.
