Taking place, literally, a block away from our studio, in a beautiful space, previously occupied by a restaurant, and organized by the founders of Cargoh and OOAK Vancouver, gather Pop Up was an easy pick. It was the first event of it's kind so far, and we were so lucky to be part of it. It was about time the bags 'got out to socialize', especially since there were some new designs appearing for the Summer...
Gather was not like many other handmade shopping weekends in the city. In fact, it defined just what we were looking for in a great event - it featured Media night on the opening evening, workshops, an art show and fantastic decor, ambiance and music - and received some serious press coverage in Canada.
... it also had a very unique way of spreading the word throughout the city - with beautiful 2-wheeled messengers equipped with fliers and lots of smiles.
On the set-up day, we loaded our bins on a dolly and carted them down the street, without needing to worry about loading the car, finding parking... making Gather the easiest and most pleasant set-up to date.

I even treated myself to this cutie by VisaMexicana...
