First Pick Handmade was created and curated by Janna Hurtzig  who is the founder/designer behind Winterluxe Recycled Cashmere. Hurtzig has been part of Vancouver’s handmade scene since 1988 in a variety of roles including co-organizer of Shiny, Muddy Fuzzy.  First Pick Handmade happens this Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 pm each day. Admission is $3.00 at the door. Whether it’s to browse or buy, stop by and support our Canadian designers. 

“We’ve hosted three shows, and, in that time, we have already been noted in the Georgia Straight’s Best of Vancouver’s pick for sustainable shopping. I think we offer a really unique market experience in that we offer fashion and accessories only, and all handmade by local and Canadian designers.”

 Janna Hurtzig, First Pick Handmade Founder, and Curator.
