Upcoming Markets + Fairs

We're not the first to organize a market for handmade and vintage sellers and we certainly won't be the last! Local markets have been around for centuries and are one of the best ways for craftspeople and vintage sellers to network and showcase their wares. Being amidst a group of like-minded entrepreneurs is always exciting and we are thrilled to bring our talented vendors together under one roof at the schoolhouse in 2 weeks time. We've been so overwhelmed by the support and sense of community that we've experienced while organizing The Old School Market. If you're looking to support local businesses or are thinking of selling some of your own handmade or vintage goods, we highly recommend visiting local markets and craft fairs in your area. Lacking organized events like this in your hometown? So were we organized our own! Here are some more fabulous events happening in the Lower Mainland, BC and a little further down South, in Washington State. Feel free to comment and share links to similar events in your neighborhood! Looks like it's going to be a great summer for at least a couple of road trips...happy trails!
