Spreading the handmade love!
Adventurers. Cat People. Makers. Shop Owners. Bloggers. Curators. Event Producers. Friendly Introverts. Coffee Drinkers. Sour Candy Lover (A) / Salt Licorice Lover (R).
As makers, we participated in our first craft fair back in November 2006 and it became apparent that it wasn’t the right fit for us. Were all craft fairs filled with pinecone art? Surely not! Inspired, we drafted up a vendor call and posted it on the community board of a local coffee shop. In May 2007, we produced the first Got Craft? event at the Western Front with over 20 vendors and 500 attendees. Over the years, we have now grown to over 75 handmade designers and over 5000 people through the doors including food carts and hands-on workshops.
Got Craft? aims to bring together a community that fosters handmade and D.I.Y. culture. Over the past 10 years in Vancouver (BC), we are excited to have partnered with the Museum of Vancouver, Vancouver Premiere of Handmade Nation and Sign Painters, Swap-O-Rama-Rama, Knit City, and Vancouver Mini Maker Faire. Our goal is to curate a boutique event to showcase some of our favourite handmade artists and provide Vancouver the opportunity to shop and meet makers in person.
When we are not busy working on Got Craft?, you can find us at our new brick-and-mortar shop, London Fields Shoppe located at 692 East Hastings in Vancouver. Visit our online shop here or say hello in person!
See you there!
