I’ve just recently learned about Make It, a company putting a brand new spin on the traditional craft show scene. With 3 shows in Western Canada this year (Vancouver just a couple of weeks ago, Edmonton this coming weekend and Calgary in November), Make It’s brother/sister management team is giving craft shows a new look and feel.
According to their website:
“Make It is the largest event of its kind in Western Canada. It is an upbeat experience that gives enlightened shoppers the opportunity to buy directly from Canada’s top urban artisans and designers!”
Each 3 day event features music by top local DJ’s, yummy treats and over 100 funky, modern, urban vendors. Definitely sounds like my kind of event… unfortunately, prior commitments will keep me away from the Edmonton show this weekend, but I’ve already booked the Calgary weekend (November 5 -7th) on my calendar!
To learn more about this show, you can follow @makeitshow on Twitter or join their Facebook page at Make It: The Handmade Revolution
I love that there is a new option on the craft show circuit, and can’t wait to check it out in November. Until then, I’ll be stalking their exhibitor list!
Show Details for this weekend!
