The Goods from First Pick Handmade

Vancouver, BC | We are back at Heritage Hall for another First Pick Handmade, Sunday March 31 from 11-6pm. This time, we have something for everyone with 33 designers creating local, small-run items for your wardrobe, home, personal care and well being. Many of our fashion designers offer made to order in inclusive sizing, so every body can wear locally made, and we specialize in sustainability, with many of our designers using off cuts, deadstock materials or recycling in the production of their creations. Pieces are made to last and be loved for years to come.
