crafty extravaganza: the beautiful project around town

I interrupt my normal food themed posts to bring you a crafty notice! There’s a lot going on this weekend in Vancouver, but if you aren’t in this city, don’t worry, you can see what I’m up to on my etsy shop! Take a look at The Beautiful Project for super cute Dutch-themed birthday calendars, holiday cards, gift tags and general greeting card perfection! Order now for the holidays and beyond!

On Friday night (6 – 9 pm) and Saturday afternoon (11 – 5 pm) I’ll be at Toque, a fund-raising craft sale event for the Western Front Gallery (303 East 8th Ave.) Friday night will be a bit of a party atmosphere, so come on by either Friday night or Saturday afternoon and get your holiday shopping done from great local artisans!

And because I love craft fairs, this Sunday I’ll also have a table for Got Craft at the Royal Canadian Legion (2205 Commercial Drive) from 11 – 6 pm. There will be a ton of local crafters out at this event and it should be a lot of fun. Plus, the first 30 people will receive a swag bag filled with goodies! What’s not to love about that?

Don’t wait until the very last moment to get all your shopping done! C’mon by to either fair and say hello. I’d love to meet you!

    Amanda, it’s actually turned into quite the gentrified neighbourhood now! That’s Vancouver for you! I think it’s still there (the cubby), but I’m not sure as I haven’t been there in a while.

    Thanks, Bijoux. That is the plan 🙂

    A long, long, LONG time ago, I lived a couple blocks from the Western Front. The neighbourhood was super-skeezy back then, and that place along with the Aboriginal drop-in centre nearby were the glowing spots in the otherwise squalid ‘hood. Does the drop-in centre still have a totem pole out front, with a little cubby carved into it where you can sit and think?
