Vancouver, BC | First Pick Handmade returns to transform Heritage Hall into a 3,300-square foot Spring Pop Up Fashion + Design Market with an exclusive and sustainable shopping experience on Saturday, March 24 to Sunday, March 26, at 3102 Main Street, Vancouver, from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm each day. Featuring local and BC-based designers and artists, meet the creators of locally made fashion, accessories and art.

“We’ve all had an online shopping experience where you’ve ordered an item and the products don’t arrive as expected, didn’t fit, or were lower quality than expected,” says Janna Hurtzig, Founder of First Pick Handmade. “Markets like ours invite people to meet the designers and artists in a welcoming boutique-based environment. Here you can make sustainable buying decisions when you learn about the design process, get the right fit and purchase items that will last.”

Trending for the spring First Pick Handmade sees size-inclusive, sustainable design practices and several Vancouver Island and Sunshine Coast designers and makers joining us for the market.
