What is Maker Supply?
In 2022, Anita and I got to planning. After wrapping up our first couple in person shows, we were excited to plan what 2023 could look like.
We had no intention of hosting a gazillion shows. We pour out so much for each event in terms of planning and promotion for our vendors that it wouldn’t be sustainable nor beneficial for everyone. So we settled on four.
Our goal was to give our vendors an opportunity to offload their older inventory, not-quite-perfects, display and crafting materials sustainably! Anita had so much wool from Make More Happy and I had loads of fabric and older inventory of scarves from Veespoke – we figured other crafters had it too! So Maker Supply was born!
So what is Maker Supply?
Think sample sale. Think warehouse sale. But for local goods. But not just that, you can find crafting materials, displays and more.
In March 2023, we held our first Maker Supply and were blown away but the support from the local community. This is a smaller market than our others, only 40 vendors and held at Heritage Hall on Main St. in Vancouver.
We will be back again on February 24, 2024 from 10-6pm. Admission is FREE to this event, but RSVP here and let us know you are coming. Every 100 RSVPs will trigger a draw for Market Cash to spend that day!
Also the first 50 in line at opening will receive a special treat (to be announced!) in addition to market cash.
Can’t wait to see you there!
