Hi Everyone,

What a great weekend. Thank you so much to our wonderful volunteers, vendors and fabulous customers. Without any of you, there would be no show.

We ended up with 5 door prize gift baskets compared to our regular ‘2’ this year, which in turn was thanks to our wonderful vendors and their handmade high quality donations.

We invite you to take a look at our photos on FLIKR and and vote for the best vendor display! Whichever vendor gets the most vote comments on this blog post will win!

You might want to also watch our ‘Wrap Up” video on YouTube.

Mark your calendars for our “Bags, Bling, ad a Little Burlesque” show on Mother’s Day weekend (application will be ready soon).

Have a wonderful night, Mele Kalikimaka, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Joyous Noel and good night Jim Bob.

Creative Finds, Day 1 recap

Hello.

Day 1 was quite eventful! A steady stream of people were attending for almost the entire day and everyone seemed quite busy! Lots to talk about, so let’s get to it.

Door Prize Draw #1

We received a bunch of donations for the door prizes (thanks everyone) so we have 4 prizes to give away. We randomly drew for 2 of them tonight and the winners are:

  • Steven H.
  • Annabelle M.

Both winners were contacted tonight and were very happy to receive the good news! Congratulations to the lucky winner! There are still 2 more prizes that will be announced tomorrow night.

Glitter, Glue and still more work to do!

Hi everyone,

The countdown is definitely on with only 3 days left until the show opens! While I am happily trudging on creating my wares along with the advertisement posters for the show, my web-guy along with our young entrepreneur, Duran of “Duran’s Connections” have taken it upon themselves to promote the show by way of video.

Here is the latest video for your enjoyment.

I have put the word out to our vendors requesting links to their crafty videos, so that we may share those jewels with you as well.

In the meantime, please visit our VENDORS page to catch a glimpse of the items they will have for sale this weekend.

Support your local Artists and Crafters this Holiday Season and come on down to Creative Finds!

It’s crafting crunch time!

Here is a quick video clip showing the chaos of my living room as I countdown to the third annual Creative Finds Marketplace. I haven’t squeezed this much glitter out of a tube since I was a vendor at Circle Craft in 2005!

Heading to bed before I crash to the floor from crafting overload. See you all tomorrow when I create the show posters, which will end up being stapled to a lamp post near you.

Good night, keep smiling and creating,

Nicci

You asked for it! The 2010 application is here!

Due to high demand, the Creative Finds 2010 Winter Art & Fine Craft Marketplace application is now available.

We look forward to going through the applications in the new year! Thank you for your interest.

E-mails have been pouring in this week from you craft folk wanting to get a jump on our 2010 Winter Marketplace application. We are very flattered. Each year the interest and excitement grows in leaps and bounds for our show, which in turn pushes us all that much more to bring great shows, such as this one, to Surrey.

Keep those e-mails coming as we love hearing from you!
