We are beaming with gratitude, pride and love today after our First Ever First Pick Handmade Market.
So many thanks to everyone who came and shopped at our inaugural show! In a world of fast fashion and chain stores, we really appreciate the support from shoppers who make a conscious choice to shop small, independent and handmade, and who appreciate the creativity and workmanship that goes into making each and every item by hand.
We are extremely grateful for those people who helped us put together things from behind the scenes, from our amazing PR from The Fawnz Creative, our floral sponsor Limelight Floral Design, The Georgia Straight for their sponsorship and all the other media who profiled our event. Also, a big shoutout to Apollo Nine Design for our beautiful website and graphic materials which to help convey our vision for the show, and muchas gracias to Tiny Finery for the support in distribution of those gorgeous postcards! Finally, thanks to Philip for being the do-it-all driver/mover/Ikea assembler and Brenda for the set up help, and for the wonderful folks at Heritage Hall for our amazing venue. We couldn’t have done it without you!
Last, but certainly not least, big, BIG love to all the designers who gave it their all and then some this weekend! This show had an amazing vibe and it’s all down to you, your beautifully made wares and your shining positivity, along with taking a chance on a brand new event and sharing our vision. Wish we could have hung out a little longer!
XO and Many, Many Thanks!
