• News Flash: The Urban Market at Highstreet!

    Drumroll please....We are beyond thrilled (we're talking covered in goosebumps thrilled!) to share some BIG news with you today! Spruce Collective will be hosting The Urban Market at Highstreet later this Fall, on October 26th, 2013! If you haven't been up there yet, Highstreet Shopping Centre is a beautiful (and enormous!) new shopping centre just off the Mt. Lehman exit here in Abbotsford and will be home to a number of fantastic new stores, restaurants, movie theatre and more...there's even a playground! Plenty of room (and parking!) for our big event and we're pretty excited about the opportunity to use one of their large indoor spaces. It'll be a pop-up market of sorts and will be the first of several. Highstreet has big plans for the Holidays this year and Spruce will be hosting several smaller outdoor night markets over the Christmas season (more details to come). ***Applications for The Urban Market are now CLOSED. We will be contacting all applicants shortly and announcing vendors on Wednesday, September 17th. In the meantime, this Fall market is a pretty big full-circle moment for us, considering that our passion for vintage + handmade markets is what brought us together in the first place. Not to mention we're coming up to our 1-year anniversary later this month...pretty darn special! In honour of our first anniversary, we'll be throwing a big sneak peek party the night before our event which you won't want to miss. Tickets will be available at the shop on September 15th and guests will receive a lovely tote bag, first dibs everything, wine + appies, a DJ (mm hmm, that's right!) and more. Fun, fun and more FUN! You can keep tabs on who else will be attending and share this event with your friends over on our Facebook Event Page (click here).

Here's a little look at Scout Handmade + Vintage Market, the last event co-hosted by Lily, one of our Spruce partners, and her then-partner Rachel. These photos of our individual booths + displays, before we became Spruce Collective, were captured beautifully by local photographer Sharalee Prang and you can see plenty more inspiring photos here.
