Sneak Peak: Holiday Makers Market

Our Holiday Maker Market is just one week away! Join us at The Makehouse on Thursday, November 26 between 5-9pm for our third annual late night shopping event sponsored by Used.ca.

We have a diverse group of makers slated for this year’s market so that you’ll find something for everyone on your holiday gift list (and maybe a few treats for yourself too).

Here’s a preview of some of the creative art and gifts you’ll find, along with a maker’s statement in their own words.

Two Blooms Design Studio

Bliss+Candle+3B 5.37.32 PM

Sisters Caron and Michelle started this organic apothecary company in 2002, and they’ve just received PETA cruelty-free beauty status.

“We are always evolving with both our products and our methods, we are in our studio 24/7 designing labels, tinkering with photography or stretching ourselves with new skills.  We’re really proud of our eco-soy wax candle line that we’ll be showing at the Makehouse. They are all plant based with essential oils (no fragrance or perfume) and make the ultimate gift for everyone (including yourself.)”

Ruth & Nelly Vintage and Handmade

Darcie, an elementary teacher-librarian, named her Etsy shop after her two grandmothers: Ruth and Nelly.

“Ruth and Nelly Vintage and Handmade was founded out of a love of crafting with an environmentally-friendly focus. Using recycled and upcycled materials sourced from local thrift shops, Ruth and Nelly specializes in OOAK bags, scarves and hand embroidered pillows. With Ruth and Nelly, I hope to provide unique vintage finds for those looking to enjoy quality in the everyday.”

Uniquely Cedra

Fill your stockings with quirky gifts from Uniquely Cedra.

“Uniquely Cedra will help you stuff your stockings! Cedra’s vibrant and eclectic collection of handmade vintage inspired magnets, matchboxes and trinket boxes are perfect gifts for the discernible folk on Santa’s list.”

Flora & Fauna Collective

Flora Fauna

This textile-based design collective makes one-of-a-kind pieces for home and play, for kids and adults.

“We’ve been hard at work in our cozy Prospect Lake studio restocking our handmade cotton bowls, hanging baskets, and our adorable collection of forest-inspired, gender-neutral felt dress up masks for kids of all ages!”

Rock Bay Footwear

Rock Bay Footwear will have special pricing on spats at the market.

“All our spats have been designed and handcrafted at Rock Bay Footwear Designs Victoria shop. You can change your look to enhance ankle or tall boots. Most are one-of-a-kind.”

Morena Clothing

Founder Marcy Ross sews distinctive articles of clothing using a variety of materials.

“I tell stories with vintage furs and lace, tweeds, silks, leather, silk screened imagery and found objects collaged on upcycled sweaters. My love for textures and nostalgia woven in with my impressions of traditional Japanese print making and the art nouveau movements have inspired me. I take a lot of pleasure in creating these pieces so much that I often catch myself smiling as I’m sewing them.”

Cavalier Cakes

This Bear Mountain-based bakery is VIHA-approved and serves clients with allergies who cannot buy from regular bakeries.

“If you have dietary concerns with gluten, dairy, nuts or are vegan or parve we can help you.  Our products are created from scratch keeping in mind the specific needs of the client. We do seasonal baking so you can have the Christmas at home experience. Whether it is butter-tarts, sugar cookies or strawberry cream cheese truffles — we do it all.”

Radjuli sells her custom creations in several Victoria boutiques.

“Radjuli’s fabulous leather accessories are part cowboy, part steampunk and all West Coast! Crafted exclusively from offcut and reclaimed leathers, vintage belts and unique hardware, this is wearable art that is built to last!”

Miss Belle’s Caravan

Annie Nazarin creates whimsical bags and other items.

“Miss Belle’s Caravan, through a variety of mediums, is a collection of pieces striving to evoke emotion, a sense of playfulness with an element of darkness. There is a woman behind the veil, her mysterious smile hinting there is so much more than meets the eye.”
