Got Craft? Springs Into Seventeen – May 2-3, 2015

Got Craft

Got Craft

Vancouver’s largest indie craft fair, Got Craft?, springs back for their 17th event at the Maritime Labour Centre on Saturday and Sunday, May 2 and 3, 2015. I am super excited to be attending this one, having peeked through the vendor list and spying a few of my personal favorites; including craft’ed (bookmarks, magnets, cards), quirky paper co. and EllaMinnoPea (check out Noah’s story below!).

Attendees will have lots to ooh and ahh over at this fair, which features 75 independent, local vendors with a variety of curated handmade goods ranging from jewelry, clothing, ceramics, stationary, housewares, toys, art, and much more!

We’re super excited to be returning to the East Village, one of favourite Vancouver neighbourhoods this May to celebrate our Spring show,” says Andrea Tong-Tucker, one half of the husband-wife production team. “We’ll be bringing back some of our most popular workshops to the upcoming event such as hand lettering with legendary sign painter, John Lennig of Big Top Sign Arts.

Popular vendors Locomotive ClothingThe Beautiful Project (paper goods) and craft’ed  will be back at the event this Spring. Nine year-old Noah Diguangco of EllaMinnoPea – who recently gave a TEDxKids talk about running his own business – will also be in attendance.
D.I.Y. lovers (and those like me who need a little direction) will be able to make their own craft projects at the workshops on site.  Satisfy your hunger with food from local trucks, handcrafted baked goods, and artisan chocolates that will also be on the menu!
