First Pick Postcard jpegThis weekend you are invited to First Pick Handmade YVR happening at the Heritage Hall at 3102 Main Street on September 16th and 17th. This is a curated event of 27 Canadian men’s and women fashion accessory designers. They will be on hand with a limited run of their fall picks.  First Pick Handmade will transform Heritage Hall into a 3,300-square foot pop up boutique department store for the person that values Canadian design and quality materials.   The event will include a combination of long standing designers as well as newer start ups.  The common thread all these designers share is high quality construction and materials. The event will showcase clothing, jewelry, hats, winter accessories, shoes and bags, for both men and women.  Some of the local designers featured include Westerly Handmade Shoes, Friday Socks, Bill Would, Winterluxe, Anderson Boots, Daub and Design, Lana Betty and Buruko Bags and Zed Handmade just to name a few.

First Pick Handmade was created and curated by Janna Hurtzig  who is the founder/designer behind Winterluxe Recycled Cashmere and Astrosatchel labels.  Hurtzig has been part of Vancouver’s handmade scene since 1988 in a variety of roles including co-organizer of Shiny, Muddy Fuzzy.  So we are expecting to see some great things at this upcoming first ever market.  First Pick Handmade YVR runs this Saturday from  11:00 am to 7:00 pm and Sunday from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. Entrance is $3.00 at the door.

Got Craft? The Spring Edition Coming This Weekend To A New Venue

25 Apr

newpostcardwebGot Craft? the largest independent craft fair will be held Saturday, April 27th and Sunday, April 28th at Templeton Secondary School, 727 Templeton Drive. This event was scheduled to be held at the Maritime Labour Centre, but due to a fire at that venue, the organizers have done some fancy foot work and managed to secure a new location.

This event will be an opportunity to see first hand how much collective creative talent there is in this City.  If you want to get a true sense of all the talent in photos, I invite you to check out the Lookbook at Issuu created for this event.

If you’d like to flex some of your own creative muscle, there will be many do-it- yourself workshops.  Have you ever wanted to learn how to knit? If so, Sunday Knit Social is on hand to show you basic knitting moves.   To round things off nicely, as I’m sure all that shopping will make you hungry, there will be food carts on hand including Varinicery Pakoras, JJ’s Trucketeria and Taser Grilled Cheese.

The event runs from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day.  Tickets are $3.00 cash at the door. Children under 10 are free. If you are one of the first 50 guests on each of the days, you will receive a free swag bag.  Now that’s an incentive to get out early if you aren’t generally inclined to!
