It’s not often I feature Vancouver based events but I wanted to highlight an upcoming local event –Vancouver Children’s Trunk Show that is happening this Friday, November 14th. A very successful event in Toronto – it’s come to Vancouver for the first time and is a great ticket to get some Christmas shopping completed! It’s a venue where businesses and estores have their products for sale and it’s happening at the best time of year. Where else can you experience fabulous local entrepreneurs from around the city presenting their creative wares for children, family and home.
I try to get out and support the mom based businesses and usually my efforts are rewarded by meeting amazing people and getting the sneak peek at amazing non-commercialized products for my kids. My day spent at the Mommies On Main event last summer was such a wonderful experience…I love the Etsy feel that surrounds these events.
Here are the details of this event. Post your comments this weekend and let me know your thoughts on the experience!
When? Friday November 14th, 2008 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
Where? VanDusen Garden (in the Floral Hall) 5251 Oak Street, Vancouver
What? A celebration of entrepreneurial women, stylish shopping events by moms and for moms, featuring locally-made fashions, furniture and products geared exclusively toward kids and families.
Expect a flurry of Mommy Footprint’s after this event…the wonderfully beautiful Natural Pod will be there with their line of natural, creative wares. This is the perfect example of getting to see the products up close from magical estores such as Natural Pod and Green Planet Parties. The fabulous eco-friendly GPP is featuring Santa Sacks and Christmas baking aprons, along with their sustainable party supplies. Too fun! Hope to see you there!
