The birds are chirping, cherry blossoms are blooming, and you have the overwhelming urge to get out and shop! Instead of heading to a generic, overcrowded mall why not experience a shopping event that will entice all your senses. If you want to support 100 of Canada’s brightest urban artisans and designers Spring Make It is the place to be this May 1-2. Find everything from fashion accessories, clothing, home décor, art, gourmet goodies and many other one-of-a-kind handmade items. All your spring shopping needs are taken care of from lovely gifts to perfect self indulgences. Make It is about celebrating creativity, having fun and supporting amazing Canadian talent. The vibe at the show is funky, hip and urban…very dierent from you traditional granny craft show! Music will be spun by
DJ Leanne who has been voted Vancouver’s #1 DJ! There is also a bar where shoppers can grab a beer or glass of wine to sip on while they peruse. We say Make It is like a mullet; craft show in the front, party in the back! Feel good about what you buy. Support the Handmade Revolution
