Had a lovely time yesterday paying my first visit to the Ivory Vintage Market. I believe this was only the second gathering, but oh, what a collection of beautiful items, friendly people and incredible talent!
What amazed me most was that I didn't recognize any of the vendors! Having been to a fair share of Lower Mainland craft fairs and markets as well as regular follower to several local crafty folk, I fancied myself fairly up on the local hand-made, home-made scene...apparently, not so much. What a treat to walk into a room full of drool-worthy displays and for everything to be brand spankin' new to me!
I nabbed a set of owl-themed hankies from hank&cheef [LOVE the name!] just moments through the door. I've been keeping an eye out for handkerchiefs lately and was thrilled to find such cute, eco-friendly ones made locally. I find myself actually hoping to get a cold soon so I can really test them out.
Besides the hankies, I lingered for a while at the Dotty Logic table. The very talented Jasonda Desmond designs her own fabric and also sells a number of cute items made with said fabrics. Sadly, I've been trying to reign in my stash lately so I had to walk away empty handed.
I have no idea if or when there will be another market, but I'll definitely go to the next one...anyone care to join me?
