Make it Vancouver This Weekendby
A new fashion, art and design market is happening in Vancouver this weekend at the Roundhouse in Yaletown. Make It! kicked off last night and will be open today at 10:00am until 5:00pm and again tomorrow from 11:00am until 5:00pm.
Make It is devoted to creating positive opportunities for artists and designers. On the flip side, Make It is a shopping event that gives enlightened shoppers the opportunity to buy unique, ethically made goods from top artisans from all over Canada!
The vibe at the show is funky, hip and modernâ€¦very different from you traditional granny craft show! Music is spun by top local DJs and there are always drinks and tasty eats to be enjoyed. Make It is about appreciating creativity, connecting entrepreneurs, and giving conscious shoppers an alternative to the mall. [About]
It’s basically a craft show meets a party-like atmosphere – upbeat, funky, and creative with fashion, accessories, baby items, art and jewelry from over 65 exhibitors. Tickets are $5 at the door and Make it will also feature a silent auction that will support the BC Cancer Foundation.

My girl friend dragged me to this, but I have to say it was actually a pretty cool event. Finally a retail show that actually sells guys stuff! Picked up a bunch of awesome stuff including my mom’s mother’s day gift. They also have Stella for $4 and the DJ was unreal! Highly recommended! Jay
The site says it’s at the Croatian Centre

I’m a potter living on Bowen Island. Is your venue appropriate for craft of this type. I do functional stoneware but highly coloredfood safe and very reasonably priced. Next question How much will it cost me? Do I have to be there or do you have a communal sales desk?
