got craft? :: thank you!


Vancouver, you blew us away.

Thank you for another record breaking year! Thank you to all of our lovely vendors, our volunteers, our sponsors, and for each and every one of the thousands of people that came through our doors.

We are working on finalizing our 2013 plans, but until then, make sure to check out our Around Town calendar for more handmade markets before Christmas. In the meantime, we are going to get some rest and will check in soon.

Happy Holidays! ♥
