StoreFrontLegendary sign painter, John Lennig from Big Top Sign Arts will be at the shop tomorrow painting our windows. We’re not officially open yet as we are still waiting on City Hall to process our final piece of paperwork, but for those eager beavers, this is a great time to watch John create his magic, take a sneak peek at the space, and to say hello!

got craft? :: barefoot contessa window display

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!

Sometimes random ideas pop into my head and I say “Hey, Robert! What are your thoughts on …?” and his response is usually one of “those” looks. So when I decided that we should contact a local retailer to host a handmade window display showcasing Got Craft? goodies, I had to contact my friend Barefoot Contessa to pitch her the idea. Thank goodness that she loved it! With me in London and numerous emails and phone calls back and forth, I am happy to announce that I am beyond smitten of how they turned out! Aren’t they gorgeous? Love! Love! Love!
