This weekend I visited the Vendor Queens Marketplace on Queen Street West. This was the first market I have attended this holiday season and I give it an A+!
Vendor Queens is a new space for designers, collectors, performers, and creative people to come together and nourish entrepreneurial ideas until conception and proudly present and sell their work (says their website!) The market is on the smallish size, which sometimes works out better because you don’t walk in with that overwhelming, uh-oh where do I start, feeling. The space is beautifully designed and each vendor has created a unique space reflected by their work. There is everything from greeting cards, to jewelry, to art prints, to antique toys. There is even sustainably sourced seal fur mittens from Nunavut!! Oh and I had incredible squash and pear soup from The Herb ‘n Homestead bar.
Vendor Queens has been open since November 16th and is open every weekend from 10:00am – 7:00pm until December 29th (so there is no excuse not to go!) They have a special Holiday Night Market on December 12 from from 8:00pm – 1:00am as well, a Queen Victoria’s Boxing Night on December 26th from 8:00pm – 1:00am. Who doesn’t love shopping until 1:00am!?
Check out some of the awesome vendors in the photos below!
Sustainable seal harvest fur accessories Beely Huang Designs. I loved the headbands! The mitts are custom made and are so soft and warm!
Delicious squash and pear soup with ginger and lime by The Herb ‘n Homestead. Perfect for the cold afternoon. Ps. winter came out of nowhere!
Adorable vintage toys and collectibles. I picked up an awesome vintage Bingo set!! Game night anyone?
I know I will be back soon for some more holiday shopping.
