The Local Difference

My blogging and social media career started with writing about my favourite local brands and markets, and choosing local continues to be a major part of my family’s lifestyle.

Creating meals with locally grown food, wearing clothing produced by small shops, and decorating with handmade home decor gives us all the feels!

When you shop local, you build meaningful relationships with the individuals behind the brand as well as supporting families and community with every purchase.

And when you can shop over 60 local vendors in one spot, it’s definitely cause for celebration!

The Collective Handmade Markets

The number of vendors in each category is limited at the Tri-Cities Collective Market so shoppers can experience a wide array of locally handmade goods during their trip. Find exactly what you were looking for plus that special something you didn’t even know you needed!

When you participate in these handmade markets, you experience local brands, emerging shops, and handmade artisans who produce content of the highest quality.

All vendors are also active in both the handmade community and on social media so, should you wish to contact them, you can easily get in touch.

The Hello Spring Market on Saturday, May 25th offers a one-of-a-kind shopping experience and features wares that are:

  • High quality
  • Local
  • Handmade
  • Original
  • Up-cycled

The Tri-Cities Collective Market Is Not Your Average Market

There are a few key differences that separate these unique handmade markets from other markets:

Handmade

There is a person behind every single handmade item.

These pieces represent time, effort, and technical skills, as well as a unique maker’s imagination!

When you purchase hand crafted items, you are choosing people.

Handmade items reflect both the person who created it as well as the consumer that purchased it. The maker sees a part of themselves in that piece while the buyer relives an experience.

When you buy handmade, you are fuelling a maker’s passion and the joyous energy emitted during the creation process remains within that item’s fibers.

No two hand crafted pieces are exactly the same – there will always be variations in colour, texture, shape, and/or size and this is exactly what makes handmade goods so beautiful.

Local

Shopping local is as much about investing in your local economy as it is about investing in the future and entrepreneurship. 

The Tri-Cities Collective promotes collaboration over competition while relying on real connections and the support of community to generate organic growth. 

Every time you shop local, you are investing in your community and its future.

When you choose to shop local, you are shopping with and supporting people who actually care about you – they are friends, family, neighbours, and community. 

Like purchasing handmade items, shopping local is also a one-of-a-kind experience in that consumers will not experience those unique items or that service anywhere else. 

Local businesses also tend to support other local businesses and each time you shop with them, you have an opportunity to form a wonderful new connection with a like-minded entrepreneur.

Shopping local is also beneficial to your health.

You probably already know that there are all sorts of chemicals and preservatives hiding in many grocery store staples. And when you buy local, many of these preservatives can be avoided.

But did you know that the same is also true when it comes to clothing and home decor?

Local makers tend to source high quality, natural materials with regional origins. So, when you bring a hand crafted item into your home, you can rest-assured that it does not contain any chemicals, dyes, or other unnecessary additives.

Collective

The Tri-Cities Collective is a specially curated collection of British Columbia’s most talented artisans and local businesses.

The makers who come together to form this collective create and sell small batch items and one-of-a-kind pieces of exclusively local and handmade origins.

Goods that are made with as much heart as they are passion are all at the center of each Tri-Cities Collective Market.
