Field Trip: Got Craft? Holiday Craft Fair

A little show and tell from the Got Craft? event today. It was super-busy and fun to see the place a-buzz with activity! Janis of Pinecone Camp and I took in the event just after the mad rush and I managed to get a few photo's in (despite the crowds). Congratulations to Andrea and Robert of Lotus Events (Got Craft) for another successful fair! Here's a few highlights!

The old Royal Canadian Legion Hall in it's retro glory. (Don't you just love the gold curtains and the pink walls? There's also a great portrait of Queen Elizabeth on the left and her husband, Prince Phillip on the right.)

Foodie blogger and Poppytalk contributor, Jeannette Ordas of Everybody Likes Sandwiches and her line of beautiful papergoods, The Beautiful Project was there. (Directly above and below).

As was Lesley of Smidgebox and her amazing hand crafted totes and peek a boo naturals.

Loved these clever little printed tree ornament (softees) by Michelle Alynn of bubbly shnooks (below).

The stunning work by the dynamic duo, Becka and Richard of Bliss in a Teacup. Psssst! I bought one of their Maple Veneer Guitar Picks as a stocking stuffer! (2 images below).

Sam Made was there with her sweet little "sew" and "write" pouches! (below)

Adorable needle felted and Amigurimi creations (below) from Him Creations

And not to be missed Cabin + Cub with her wood burned art panels, adorable 2011 calendars and hand sewn notebooks!

Other notables (that we sadly didn't get pictures of - busy busy it was!) included Hey Design (ceramics), Hudsonny, Kove Handmade (so sorry Kyla that we missed you!), Note and Emote (cute cards), Owl and Pussycat (adorable felted oranments and stockings), Roxypop, papergoods from Sunlit Letterpress, Wendy Oakman Books, Aja Billas Ceramics, Dives In and so many more! The complete vendor list here.

Looks like this was a great show! I wish I could be everywhere at once in this fun city of ours! There's too much to do! (Though I am definitely not complaining!)

So many lovely goodies! I was a vendor at Got Craft & didn't get a chance to see ANY of this stuff. It was just too busy to leave my table! A good problem to have, of course, but wish I'd had a chance to do some shopping myself. :)

There's my pony-tailed husband and his parents in your shot! How cute to see them unwittingly on Poppytalk.
And what a lovely show it was!
