Got Craft? This holiday season, the answer is YES. Vancouver’s largest indie fair, Got Craft?, returns for its 12th show, bigger and better than ever. This is Pinterest in real life folks!
“Come shop for one-of-a-kind items in a casual environment,” invites Andrea Tucker, one half of the husband-wife production team. “The artists love chatting about their creative process and we have free workshops so everyone can go home with their own D.I.Y. project!”
The vendor list grew by 45% for the holiday show, now featuring 80 artists who make everything from chocolate to cards and clothes, so that shoppers can buy themselves a present or knock everything off their holiday shopping list, all while listening to indie music.
“It is really important to us that our event is well-curated,” says Andrea. “We want to make sure that every show is different and that there is always something new for shoppers. At the upcoming show, I have to admit that I’m pretty excited to buy some locally-made infused raw honey from Mellifera Bees!”
The first 50 people through the door each day will receive a swag bag with 20-25 items like chocolate, earrings, and handmade soap. If that’s not enough – a handful of gift cards, valued from $25-$75, will randomly be dropped into a few lucky bags each day. For more information visit www.gotcraft.com.
