Make It Vancouver!

Why you should go: Make It is like a mullet; craft show in the front, party in the back!  If you need more reason than that at Make It you can shop for one-of-a-kind handmade items from over 90 of Canada’s hottest urban artisans and designers! Make It fuses indie shopping, a fully licensed bar and music spun by top Vancouver DJs to create a dynamic, upbeat experience! There will be something for everyone from fashion, accessories, art, jewelry, baby items and home decor.  Be the best holiday gift giver in your family this year!

Cool extras:  You can get $3 of the price of admission by following this link – the super amazing part about it is you can just show them the flyer on your phone to save paper!  Smart thinking Make It!  Also the First 25 Shoppers get a free goodie bag! (each day).  Woot!  Oh and free parking – you can try to arrive early as it gets busy fast, but luckily there is a steady stream of people coming and going all weekend so you are bound to snag a good spot pretty much any time of day.
