Artsy Fartsy Market

Got into another craft fair!!
I know sort of last minute, but it is a great opportunity to head down with the family for some treats at the market and a last minute gift buying at the craft fair!
Carousel Theatre’s Studios  1411 Cartwright Street (Granville Island), Vancouver, BC
Carousel Theatre for Young People is hosting an Artisan Market on December 18 & 19, 2010. The event is a fundraiser for our youth programming and a showcase for local designers, artisans and vendors. All funds raised by table rentals, entrance donations and café sales will directly benefit Carousel Theatre’s Season of Literary Classics and our Inner City School Ticket Donation Program. All sales raised by each vendor will go in their own pocket!

We will be hosting the event in our building, located on beautiful and bustling Granville Island. This is an excellent opportunity to share your work in a popular Vancouver shopping location- right before the holidays! We will be taking over the entire bottom floor of studios with vendor tables and a café with tasty treats, coffee, hot chocolate and hot apple cider.

Christmas + Crafts

 Winter came a bit early this year, last week thursday it snowed and snowed! Of course i had to get xen out there to experience it and she loved it so much it was hard to get her to come back in the house. Good thing too because it rained right after and the snow was gone the next day.
 We did the first of 2 craft fairs this year at Make It! For 3 whole days we were there and had a good time..i had never done any other than Got Craft? It was a very different vibe and I learned tons. There were some great other tables there and they actually served beer and wine which was a nice surprise to Jayson.

We sold lots of the ornaments ..the scent really does the trick.
Other great booths at Make it include- BYWA Bag Designs, Kukubee
and Papaya Blue ( Thanks for the Earrings! )

 I don't know if i will be doing as much craft fairs next year, as i might go in a totally new direction..lots of ideas and new things to explore so i really liked that i was able to this year!

This weekend is the 2nd Craft show we are in at Got Craft?  I will have some bunny , cat and bear toys that i didn't have at Make it!  So if you are around vancouver on Sunday come down to 2205 Commercial Drive from 10- 5pm.
