Got Craft Holiday Market Gift Bag Giveaway

Comments 281 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Holiday craft season is in full swing and Got Craft? is a must-see event if you love to shop handmade and shop local.

Got Craft? aims to bring together a community that fosters handmade and D.I.Y. culture. Founded in 2007, Got Craft? is held twice a year in May and December featuring 75 handmade designers, craft workshops, tasty treats, DJs, FREE swag bags, and an average attendance of 3000+ a year.

The vendor list grew by 45% for the holiday show, now featuring 80 artists who make everything from chocolate to cards and clothes, so that shoppers can buy themselves a present or knock everything off their holiday shopping list, all while listening to indie music.

    I’m entering this content on behalf of all the local goodies included in the deal! Have been a Irit Sorokin fan for years (her one-of-a-kind jewellery includes beads & findings from Vancouver to NYC), and love discovering new talented designers and food vendors around this city.

  261. AndreaThursday, November 29th, 2012 — 10:09am PST

    I have been a got craft regular for years (including lining up bright and early for a swag bag). My friend who goes with me each year can’t go this year because of a death in the family, so I’m hoping to win a second one for her.
