Tis the Season of Crafting Markets!

Spring has Sprung! And that means it’s almost time for another season of amazing weather, festivals and best of all markets!!

Craftadian puts on one of my favourite market events in Hamilton! Craftadian really cares about supporting quality Canadian craftsmanship and creating an elevated and innovative shopping experience! This years market will feature 80 jury selected crafters, making the latest trends in art, fashion, home, beauty, and much more!

 

This year’s market will also feature amazing food and activities including Durand Coffee, Queen Arepa, Johnny Rocco’s as well as a DJ and DIY workshops!! In addition, the first 50 families in line will receive a free swag bag!

 

Craftadian also gives back to the community and a portion of the proceed will go towards Food 4 Kids and other not-for-profit organizations based in Hamilton!

 

Craftadian was kind enough to send me over this amazing package of goodies to highlight their upcoming markets, and I want to share with you all some of the amazing vendors you can check out during this season’s markets!

 

Murphy’s Treats– Single Ingredient dehydrated dog treats made in Hamilton. These treats are made with love and were packaged so nicely. My dog, Jax, loved them. I love that you know what you’re giving your pet! These treats are made up of animal parts discarded by local farmers, you can, in most cases, tell what you’re giving your pet, some of the treats were clearly dehydrated ears and what not. These treats are amazing, and every single package is Murphy approved!!

 

Dream Willow– This jewelry maker is amazing, she makes one of kind and stamped jewelry, as well as beauty creations and custom designs! In my goodie bag, I received the most adorable silver ring, I love the simplistic bow design. Her pieces are very classic and timeless, and definitely make an excellent gift or addition to your jewelry collection. Be sure to check her work out at this year’s market!

 

Lunahlife– This holistic nutritionist based out of London Ontario, has her own small batch botanical skin and body care line,  these beautifully packaged products not only look but feel luxurious. If you are a lover of holistic/natural beauty products, like myself, I would definitely recommend stopping by her booth!

 

The Creative Card – This small batch, handcrafted card maker creates some of the most adorable and unique cards around! The two cards that I received in my goodie bag were made with such attention to detail!

 

Its Ok Its Art Hand Drawn Colouring Designs – I am so excited to colour in the pillowcase that I received in my goodie bag! Its Okay its Art is a vendor who sells adult colouring activities on household items such as pillowcases and makeup bags and pouches. This is such a unique and wonderful idea and is definitely worth checking out at the craft fair.

 

You can check out these vendors and so many more at Craftadian’s Hamilton Spring Market, on national handmade day, April 7th, at McMaster innovation park, from 10am – 4pm. Admission is $5, and the possibilities are endless!
