My Favourites from Make It Vancouver

If you follow me on instagram, you know that yesterday I dragged my good-natured husband to Make It Vancouver.  Make It is a yearly trade show full of handmade goodies: everything from leather goods to terrariums, baby blankets to jams.  This is no ordinary craft show though: it’s full of  artisans who make their living creating the gems on display.  There are no crafty santas or doilies to be found, which is a relief.

And so here are my favourite 5 vendors from the whole show.  I plan to patronize them all year, since their stuff is available online.  Enjoy!
