Vancouver event: Salt Spring in the City

I love a good craft and art fair and there's one in Vancouver this weekend that I'd attend if I could. Salt Spring in the City brings artisans from Salt Spring Island into the big city to show and sell their wares. "Over thirty vendors have been invited to attend Salt Spring in the City," write the organizers, "It's a curated, pop-up village market, where the criteria for inclusion means the product must be designed, and produced on Salt Spring Island. The Vancouver showcase will include food and fashion, paintings and pottery, wine and crafts, and a sense of nostalgia for the West Coast’s homesteading practices. Visitors will discover the wares of woodworkers, designers, jewellers and potters, artisanal cheese makers and preservers, weavers and painters, artists and foodies."

Heritage Hall, at 15th & Main Street
Friday, March 4: 4pm to 9pm
Saturday, March 5: 10am to 6pm
Sunday, March 6: 10am to 5pm

Deanna Milligan, Cherry Blossom Eco Clothing Cherry Blossom Eco-Clothing is made from materials that are sustainable, comfortable and pack in a pinch. The style is flexible enough to ware for comfort by day or add accessories for a night on the town, and turn that little black, eco-friendly dress, into an after dark staple.
