From jams and chocolate fudge to Merino wool and hand-crafted leather, Circle Craft offers some great ways to cross names off your Christmas shopping lists.
Not to freak anyone out, but Christmas is only seven (!) weeks away. If you’ve completed all of your holiday shopping, congrats! But if you’re scrambling with what you could possibly get your sister-in-law or your nephew who already has everything, don’t fear! With over 300 exhibitors, the Circle Craft Christmas Market is back for its 45th year and it just so happens to be the perfect place to pick up prezzies for your friends and family—here are a few of our faves:
New to the Circle Craft Christmas Market and jam-packed (excuse the pun) with fruit, East Van Jam prides themselves on using less sugar so there’s more room for the good stuff. Pick yourself up a jar of these lovely, local preserves with punny names like “Fig Vicious” and “Madame Cherry.”
Cedar Mountain is a Salt Spring Island operation run by a close knit family; the Zacharias clan creates local inspired art for your walls with a cedar wood aesthetic—look out for their patterned bear decals and retro phone cases.
Straight out of Squamish, Watershed Wax Co. produces beautiful handcrafted bags, baskets and utility pouches that are built to last. The wax they use is completely non-toxic and the design is inspired by the Pacific Northwest.
When designer Lincoln Heller worked at an Alaskan logging camp, he used worn out loggers boots to fashion leather pouches; Fiveleft continues to take inspiration from this, crafting leather bags, wallets and accessories.
While we slowly accept that the cold weather is here for the foreseeable future, cheer yourself up with some cute and colourful stationary, like this adorable coffee bookmark, from the Crafted Van booth.
Another one to help with the upcoming cold stretch, Wee Woolies is made from pure New Zealand Merino wool. Designed to keep the heat in, Wee Woolies creates blankets, onesies, and beanies to keep your wee ones warm.https://www.instagram.com/p/BL9prMXgw5g/?taken-by=tickleberrys
What began as a quick way of making the most of their property’s berry yield (they got their start making jams) has turned into a dessert lovers dream: Tickleberry’s makes their own chocolates, fudge and kettle korn.
Self-taught jewelry designer and Vancouver native Sabrina Chin founded Love At First Blush in 2009; she creates beautifully delicate pieces inspired by nature, like this double feather necklace.
