The unique shopping experience of the Bespoke Market returns in November to the Railway Museum of British Columbia.
From Nov. 11 to 13, shoppers can purchase jewelry, art, vintage clothing and food and beverages from various B.C. vendors, some coming from Squamish while others have travelled as far as the Okanagan.
“After the success of our spring and summer markets, it’s exciting to see people’s commitment to buying local and supporting small,” said founder and creator Shannon Lorenz, in a news release.
“We want the November market to inspire market visitors to shop thoughtfully and intentionally. These are the big impact actions that make all the difference in the success of small businesses.”
Beyond shopping, there are other interactive elements mixed into the market, including live painting, a DJ, numerous food trucks, and a tarot reader.
Lorenz also said that she hopes shoppers and creative entrepreneurs connect outside of the market through online tools.
“It is my greatest wish that Bespoke continues to evolve into a market shaped by the very communities where these markets are hosted as we seek expansion through 2023,” she said in the release.
Interested shoppers have a variety of tickets they can purchase to enter the Bespoke Market in a couple of weeks.
Early bird tickets are available for Saturday and Sunday entrance for $8.87. For an all-weekend pass, shoppers can purchase a ticket for $14.44.
Finally, a VIP early entry pass is available for $28.92. With the VIP pass, shoppers get entrance to the whole weekend plus an hour of VIP shopping from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, November 11. Also, with this pass, shoppers get a free tote bag with four or five items.
If shoppers are only interested in attending one day, entry is $5 in cash at the door.
