SHIFT Handmade Spring Fling Market
Saturday, May 6th, 10 am – 4 pm, West Langley Lions Hall, 9400 208th Street, Langley
Originally from Saskatchewan, Leslie & Jill are crafting, creative sisters. Always have been, always will be. Over the past several years, we’ve worked together building our sister business (pun intended), West Coast Leslie Designs. After experiencing several markets, an idea started percolating. There were a lot of things we loved about the markets; the people (we call them craftipreneurs), pipe and drape booths, having food trucks available. But there was some stuff we felt could be improved upon. Being the go-getters that we are, we decided to DIY our own market! Thus SHIFT market was born!
