Another great collaboration of local makers is coming together in East Van on March 5th. The East Van Bazaar will be happening in the space that was formerly home to Astorinos, 1739 Venables at Commercial Drive. Organizers have some experience with local markets and are behind the Studio East Bazaar and East Van Holiday Artist Market. At the upcoming East Van Bazaar, you will have the opportunity to explore Vancouver’s thriving community of artists and artisans, makers and shakers and doers and dreamers. They will be gathering under one roof to share their talents and create something beautiful, whether it be hand-crafted jewelry, local wood sculptures, new gadgets, oddities and collectibles, cool handmade items or vintage reworks. The East Van Bazaar will have over 40 vendors including Tea Lani with specialty teas, soaps by The Good Oak and Mountain Naturals, jewellery designs by Larki Designs Andrea Hodge, Rish Jewellery and Crisp Bones, Pinch with all natural deodorant which I know a number of people have been on the hunt for. Also bags by Bag of Holding and Nara Nation and many more great items. For a full rundown of vendors, visit East Van Bazaar. There will also be live music and a DJ on hand as well as food and drink vendors. The event kicks off at Noon and runs till 6:00 pm. Admission is a suggested $2 donation.
