Circle Craft Summer Market

Comments 67 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Everyone loves Circle Craft! This is what I have learned over the years hosting event listings and contests for this anticipated local craft fair and market. Circle Craft and the Craft Council of BC are holding their third annual Circle Craft Summer Market this week at Jack Poole Plaza (next to the Olympic Cauldron) and it’s bound to be a popular one.

  39. BrianTuesday, July 21st, 2015 — 11:22pm PDT

    Hi Miss 604

    For future reference exhibitors at this type of show should not be referred to as vendors. Since it is a juried art fair the term artists and craftspersons is more respectful. Vendors generally refers to resellers.

    Keep up the good work!

  40. RebeccaTuesday, July 21st, 2015 — 11:33pm PDT

    I love craft markets. Thanks for the chance to win.

  41. EileenTuesday, July 21st, 2015 — 11:38pm PDT

    Hi Brian,

    Noted, and updated. However, a vendor to me (and to the dictionary) is simply “one that sells or vends something”. I’m certain the talented exhibitors would also love to make a few sales at the market.


  55. MarinaWednesday, July 22nd, 2015 — 9:57am PDT

    I will definitely be going to this. There were these cute little glass markers for garden herbs that I saw last year and totally regret not buying. I hope they are there this year!!

  56. KateWednesday, July 22nd, 2015 — 9:59am PDT

    I’ve never been but would love to go
