got craft? swag

27 Apr

Oh yes, the first 45 people through the doors at Got Craft on Sunday, May 8th in Vancouver will receive one of these tote bags. Each bag is filled with a selection of goodies from our vendors and our lovely sponsors including Sublime Stitching and Etsy.

I have been told that these bags are legendary, so be prepared to arrive early! Doors open at 10:00 a.m. and although starting at the last show, the number of bags available increased by 15, the line up seems to start earlier than earlier. I think the record holders arrived at 6 a.m. with breakfast, a book, games and a sleeping bag!

Not an early riser? We have you covered! Keep your eyes peeled on Poppytalk, Granville Online and Vancouver is Awesome for swag bag giveaways leading up to the event or enter to win one below!

(a big thank you to Diana from for contributing the tote bags!)

    I’m most excited to see honey canada’s booth, but I know for sure that I will be buying from the bake sale baking co. if not from gluten-free epicurean. And probably also a zipper pouch from either cynthia or kukubee.

    Sam Made – Love recycled leather!
    It’s your life – love the vintage bird motifs.

    Looking forward to seeing The Gluten Free Epicurean, for some yummy treats!

    Man you’re making me decide!?! Hmm I know already I like many of them as I was there last year and went to to Make It earlier this month.
    I’ll say either bake sale baking (hope they have samples of these beauties!) and eikcam because they look neat.

    The Rice Babies- Love it. It makes me miss my childhood.

  9. Stina May 1, 2011 at 04:01 #

    I can’t choose just one! I love checking out what The Beautiful Project, Smidgebox Designs and Raven’s Rest Studios have to offer. I LOVE Collage Collage and am intrigued to see what their table will be like, and Sam Made is a friend so it will be awesome to see her and her enticing creations (I usually want everything she has but I am a full up on pouches right now).
