Today was a good day! Rachel of Onana Knits and ourselves at Momomints headed out Saturday to meet at 7:30am. All of us don’t even wake up this early for work, but today was a big day! We were all set out on our adventure to Got Craft?‘s Spring 2014 Edition craft fair in the lovely city of Vancouver.

Now you may be wondering why were were out so early! Well, Got Craft? is one of the best craft markets in Vancouver and is well known for their very coveted “FREE Swag Bag”. The bag features a mystery mix of goodies from different vendors participating in the craft fair and is a FREE gift to the first 50 attendees at the market! We decided that arriving at 8am, two hours prior to the opening of the market at 10am, would be sufficient and we got super lucky! There were about 22 people lined up in front of us and about 5 minutes after arrival, everyone was handed tickets with numbers to claim their free Got Craft? swag bag. After getting our number, we were welcome to leave to go to a nearby coffee shop to kill the wait time. Sitting at a coffee shop, chatting with fellow friends and crocheting while we waited, went by quicker than we could have expected.

At about 15 minutes to 10am, we returned, got our swag bag and went right in! Admission to this lovely craft market is only $3 and the area is very easy to get to and has plenty of parking!

Now, $3 is nothing when you get to experience so much wonderful handmade goodness from local vendors. Marissa and I were spoiled with the love of so many mint coloured goods everywhere we went! One of our favourites was the lovely jewelry designed by Reminded Designs which featured lots of love for peach and mint!

Now we have to admit,  one of our main reasons of wanting to visit Got Craft? was to visit and support our friends of Craft’ed Van!

We had also planned to take more photos of all vendors that featured mint coloured products, but because we were so overwhelmed with all the great products being sold, we totally got distracted. So… here, we present you with this really darling baby dress by Carmen West Creative.

On to the swag bag! Look at this explosion of handmade goods! Our favourites include natural soap bars, handmade caramels, wooden pins, various earrings and rings, felting kits, mystery plant seeds, greeting cards, cookies, and so much more! We really appreciate the thought that vendors put into these items. And every bag is different! So it’s really interesting to see what others have got!

  • Wish I knew you girls were heading there early! I agree – everything there is super adorable and I got super excited every time I see the minty coloured ones. The Craft’ed girls have grown so much and I’m super proud of the collection and booth they put together for GotCraft? Hope to see you next time, Sami & Marissa!

    • We saw the video you made too! That was amazing =) and such a fitting song for the video =). For sure it was awesome to see Craft’ed there! They must have been the most popular booth!

      We’ll be at Portabello West this May. We hope to see you there! And if not, at a future crafty meet-up =).

  • Wow, this craft fair sounds absolutely amazing! I would love to attend one day 🙂 Is it held twice a year? OMG and that swag bag is to die for! Good job waking up so early on a weekend to score those goodies! And thanks for introducing me to such lovely vendors- the bookmarks and magnets by “Craft’ed Van” look so cute!!! I love how you were scouring the fair for mint and peach items too 😉

    • Hi Steph! It’s definitely one of our favourites! Their application jury process is quite good so there are high quality vendors at their events. Their craft fair is twice a year, once in the spring and again in the winter. At each fair they have these swag bags that they give away and it’s always exciting to see what vendors come up for their swag. Each bag is different too!

      Craft’ed are good friends of ours here too! They are quite new but growing quite rapidly! And yay for all mint everything =)
