District Dogs Designs, our little letterpress shop will be featured in a fantastic store that promotes local art this Saturday. Needless to say we are excited! If you are in Vancouver, BC, please drop by! 🙂
Did I blab about this yet? No? Well, hubby and I have this little letterpress shop called District Dogs Designs operating out of our garage in North Vancouver! The entire summer we participated at local events and attended farmers’ markets and have made friends with people who sell our work at select gift stores in the Lower Mainland. After a nail-biting wait – we have been accepted at Make It Vancouver this year! YIPPEE! We are officially “makies”!
Make It Vancouver is the brain-child of siblings Jenna and Chandler Herbut. This dynamic duo’s goal is to create opportunities for local artists, crafters, designers & musicians. They encourage Canadians (and visitors) to buy local and support their communities – this is the drive behind the Handmade Revolution!
We would like to encourage our family and friends to please, consider buying local this holiday season! If you print this flyer below and show it at the doors at Make It – you will get a dollar off of the entrance fee! Remember, pay once and shop 4 days!
A couple of days ago we managed to squeeze in a fourth card for our 2012 Valentine’s collection from District Dogs Designs. We brought some samples to a Vancouver store called, Bird On A Wire Creations, located on Main corner Broadway Street.
This evening, we witnessed a lady entering the store pushing a buggy in front of her, heading straight for the card stands! We held our breath as we watched her pick up one of our cards featuring a Valentine’s Owl! She eyed it and turned it over a couple of times, then she put it back! My heart sank, but then she picked up the one featuring a Tree! And this time she walked to the till with it! One of O.U.R cards. I cannot tell you how excited and proud we felt! To top it all, the owner of the store, introduced us to her! Tickled Pink!!!
