Got Craft supports makers and small shops with opportunities to showcase and sell their work. Through our markets, we provide an inclusive space to discover, inspire, and connect with the community.
supporting small + creative since 2007
With a background in event management and as experienced vendors themselves, Andrea and Rob started Got Craft after participating in a craft fair filled with art that didn’t fit their aesthetic. Feeling inspired, they used their event and creative skills and drafted up a vendor call for their local community board.
In May 2007, the first Got Craft market took place at the Western Front with 20 vendors. Got Craft has now grown to 9 in-person and online events throughout the year and have featured thousands of makers and small shops from across Canada.

Andrea: Got Craft started after a friend taught me how to crochet in the back of a moving vehicle. From there, Robert bought me a sewing machine for Christmas which encouraged me to start making cute zipper pouches and hair accessories. Roxypop (from a Roxy sticker and a popsicle that I was eating at the time) was sold at shops throughout Canada and at various shows including Vancouver Maker Faire, One of a Kind Vancouver and Toronto, Interior Design Show Vancouver, Vancouver Etsy Co, Portobello West, Refresh Market, Renegade Craft London (UK), and Crafty Fox Market (UK).
Together, with over 36 years of event management experience working with corporate and non-profit clients, we use our skills to build Got Craft into a highly anticipated event that is thoughtfully curated to create a one a of kind, accessible, and inclusive shopping experience for all.
Past projects and partnerships include: Vancouver Premiere of Handmade Nation and the Sign Painters movie, Swap-O-Rama-Rama, Indie I Do, Vancouver Mini Maker Faire, Etsy UK, London Fields Shoppe, lotus events inc.
