Inside Vancouver: 10 Artists to Check Out at Circle Craft This Weekend

Described as “the Grey Cup of Craft Fairs,” Circle Craft Christmas Market is back for it’s 40th year at the Vancouver Convention Centre this weekend. Bringing artists from all over Canada with the premise that everything is hand-made, Circle Craft has made it’s name for the top place to find high end, unique gifts for the holiday season. Author Miranda Post picks her top 10 Vancouver based artists you should definitely check out at the show for Inside Vancouver. Our favourite off the list? Muffle-Up Slippers. We picked up a pair of these cozy, funky-coloured slippers last winter and absolutely LOVE them!

IDS West 2013

IDS West is known as a haven for all beautiful things for the home.  What most people don’t realize is that they have a fabulous cash & carry area called “The District” which features 20 or so local designers. This means that while you are dreaming about that amazing Montauk Sofa for your living room (we do…every show without fail!), you can wander over to pick up some new pillows from Phaulet, a stunning bracelet from Toodlebunny and of course, a pair of our Adriana Leggings.

**Please note that The District has replaced the December One of a Kind Show in Vancouver. OOAK no longer takes place here.

Portobello West will be hosting their 3rd quarterly market of the year at Creekside Community Centre this Saturday and Sunday, September 7 + 8, from 11am-5pm.  There will be a silent auction with items donated from the vendors.  All proceeds will go towards the Canadian Charity, Dress for Success.  Daub + Design will be donating one of their coveted Brenna Scarves to the gift baskets.

A little about Dress for Success: DFS is a registered Canadian Charity that helps low and no income women to transition into the workforce by providing professional attire.  Each Dress for Success client receives a suit for her interviews and a small working wardrobe when she gets her job.  The suits we give symbolize our faith in every woman’s ability to succeed.

The Dress for Success Vancouver Professional Women’s Group program then provides ongoing support to help our clients build a successful career.Former clients who have successfully returned to the workforce become members who meet monthly for a networking and education program.  Monthly meetings focus on subjects such as the written and unwritten rules of the workplace, personal finance, communication, personal health and much more.
