Flock & Gather Winter Wonders 2015


I know this information and these photos are almost two months late, but I really wanted to share them with you. This past December I had the privilege to be included with some of the most amazing makers in the city, and Western Canada. By being lucky enough to be one of the vendors at the Flock & Gather Winter Wonders handmade market. When I had a moment to wander around and explore the other tables, I snapped some photos as well -- sorry for the quality.

Boolah Baguette always has the most amazing little creatures available for shoppers. A little while ago, she introduced clothing for some of her characters which are absolutely adorable. Her Instagram photos make me die from the overload of cute every time I see them in my feed -- don't get me started on when she stuffs their little hands into their pockets.

I couldn't help but sing Drake's Hotline Bling whenever I looked at this fun embroidery from Swish & Craft. She has the most creative mind, and comes up with the funniest sayings to stitch into her fabrics. Her work sometimes has a surprising little twist to it, too.

Mimi & Lala has the cuuutest items available for little girls, and if I had one of my own I would honestly buy all the things -- so my husband is lucky.

Make Your Mark Metalwork makes the most incredible and intricate jewellery I have ever seen. He designs beautiful pieces using precious and semi-precious stones, and uses the tiniest saw blade to cut out every bit of the design himself.

The puppets and other amazing things you will find at Junipermoon Makery always make me smile. I was lucky enough to be across from her the first time I ever did a Flock & Gather market, and I was so excited to see her again. I always enjoy looking at the names and stories that she writes up for her puppets, and I had a good laugh over the puppets she made of Justin Trudeau, Steven Harper, and Tom Mulcair during the election process.

Remade Goods does the most beautiful work with weaving and tying knots -- and such -- which reusing items that she has found. None of the items she uses in her products are new. Talk about a perfect way to reduce, reuse and recycle!

Cloud and Lolly do stunning work. I was really drawn in by their beautiful gemstone bullet necklaces and the amazing presentation of their items -- even though I made have ruined it a bit trying to get a necklace back in the stand.
