circle craft 2013

Here’s another annual holiday market which just got announced for the 2013 season!  Vancouver’s Circle Craft Christmas Market celebrates its 40th annual Market from November 7 to 11, 2013. From previous years of attending Circle Craft, I’ve seen that their exhibitors tend to be full-time artisans who perfect their craft for a living.  This includes wood turners, glass blowers, sculptors and potters, clothing and jewellery designers, toy makers, leather and metal workers, and more.

The 2013 Circle Craft Market will take place at the Vancouver Convention Centre West, 1055 Canada Place, November 7-11, 2013.

The shows are available twice a day. Now shoppers have the opportunity to preview the best pieces from the Market’s designers and take the looks from the catwalk to their closets. Shows will take place daily at 1:00 pm, Thursday-Saturday at 6:00 pm, and Sunday-Monday at 3:00 pm.
  • The Main Stage where fantastic local talent will shine, including youth community dance and music groups!
  • Student Art Exhibition – Circle Craft presents, for the seventh year, an exciting exhibit celebrating student creativity.

    Being with my family. We love hearing the church bells, there seems to be a quietness in the city and I’m grateful that we live in such an incredible country. Thank you.

    Spending time with family, happiness, baking, the lights, the decorations and presents.

    It’s a magical time of year, where people care more and adults become kids again. Christmas is a miracle that we are lucky enough to get every year

    I love the feel of Christmas from the lights, snow (when we do get a light dusting in Vancouver) and just having my husband home for 2 weeks so we can spend it as a family with the kids.
