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!
I love these patterns and colours: so cozy!
Him Creations felt woodland creatures
so detailed and adorable, I want to set these up on every shelf and window frame I have!
Beautiful, buttery leather custom bags, belt and headbands.
Jen Ellis Designs silver jewelry
Loved these delicate, elegant pieces: every one is perfect!
Kris Brownlee’s paintings are inspired and make me feel like I’m in a story book. SO perfect for kids rooms!
