Got Craft? is an independent craft fair which will be holding its Holiday Edition market this weekend at the Maritime Labour Centre, 1880 Triumph Street, with some 75+ local vendors.
Got Craft? is one of many great opportunities to see first hand how much creative talent there is in this City. The event aims to bring together a community that fosters handmade and do-it-yourself culture. You can expect to find a variety of handmade items including jewellery, stationery, housewares, plush toys, baked goods, artisan chocolates and much more. Some new vendors lined up this year include Rogue Florist, Shoreside Studios, Small Wonder, Livia Sweets and Jon Shaw Paintings.

This weekend you are also invited to come flex your creative muscle in one of the their FREE hands on workshops hosted by Spool of Thread sewing lounge, Small Wonder and Delish General Store. Projects include do-it-yourself ornaments and holiday tags. And if all that shopping makes you hungry, they’ve got you covered there as well. A few local food carts including Taser Grilled Cheese, Ze Bite and The Kaboom Box will be on hand.
The event runs from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on both Saturday, December 13th & Sunday, December 14th. Tickets are $3.00 cash at the door. Children under 10 are free.
