HOME for the Holidays!Posted on November 23rd, 2011
The holiday season is among us, and when most of us think holidays, we think of home. Home is where we gather among friends and family, home is where we cook meals and entertain guests, home is the shelter we decorate, and since we work in the “home” business, we are honoured to improve, and transform such a big part of your life. We hope home is where your heart is this season!

This craft market features works from artists across North America, not just Vancouver, British Columbia, or Canada.

Takes place at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
Portobello West is a famous Vancouver artist and craft market that happens on the last Sunday of every month and features an array of local artisans and wares, including arts, fashion, accessories, and home decor.
