Now that the holidays are officially on the horizon (goodbye, sweet summer), it’s time to start getting into the shopping spirit.

Remember last year, when you were doing all of your holiday shopping the night before, sweating in your heavy coat as the harsh fluorescent lights and crowds pushed you to your limits and your hopefully optimistic remark: “Next year, I’ll start my shopping early!” 

Now’s your chance to get all of your holiday shopping out of the way with the upcoming surge of craft markets in Vancouver! We’ve got five fantastic fall markets quickly approaching, filled with locally-made crafts that are the perfect hostess/host gift, stocking stuffer, holiday gift, or maybe just something special for yourself.
