“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.” – Brené Brown
A new decade makes me reflect on life and how much I have grown over the past 10 years as a “creative entrepreneur”. I find that I am always seeking to connect with artisans and like-minded people to learn from and encourage being mindful of the unique potentials every person has to offer. I am constantly amazed at the craft, ingenuity and passion this island has to offer.
Vancouver Island Market was created to reflect this experience and to expose to the community all the skills, time and hard work each and every individual maker represents.
It’s an emotional and uplifting feeling for shoppers, organizers and even other makers to experience the passions and history offered by each maker. And to enjoy their purchased wares for years to come, as well as creating long time friendships and return customers.
Not forgetting we do this with food, wine and local brews too!
Vancouver Island Market will returns with a refreshed mindset in April 2021. With a focus on meaningful connections, the VIM team look forward to boosting sustainability and the local creative economy right her on the island. There will be food trucks, outdoor and indoor vendors spread across the entire mall with live music. Come enjoy the exclusivity that sparks joy and supports your choice to shop local.
