sweet swag

I have been busy with production for the upcoming Got Craft event coming up in early May, Vancouver's largest indie craft fair. Yesterday, I finished making all my swag. Swag???... you ask? Oh yes, the first 30 people through the door receive a free, yes F-R-E-E, swag bag stuffed with crafty goodies from all 55 vendors. These swag bags are so coveted in fact, past fairs have resulted in line-ups around the block from attendees just wanting to get one! So here is a sneak peek of the swag I am putting into the bags.... bookplates! I have put together little pairs of bookplates for each bag! Hope you can come visit!

Got Craft
Sunday, May 2nd
10 am - 5pm
