Find laceembrace at the following upcoming market!

  • The Folk Bazaar at the Vancouver Folk Fest
    Jericho Beach Park
    1515 Discovery St
    VANCOUVER, BC

    Jul 14–16

    The Folk Bazaar, located ocean-front in Jericho Beach Park, has quickly become an integral part of the Festival experience. Like a true bazaar, you’ll find a diverse collection of treasures to peruse – maybe even see into your future or heal your past. Vendors here typically import their goods, but some sell their own handcrafted works. Clothing, accessories (including jewellery, hats, bags, belts, guitar straps, and even magic wands!), houseware items, toys and, well, pretty much anything else you can think of can be found among the over 160 booths in this market. Open to both festival-goers and the general public. Accessible from the beach or from just outside the West Gate.

If final payment is not complete by end of 5th day, the item will be removed from layaway and available again for sale.

Layaway is available on purchases over $150CAD. The garment must also have been online for at least 1 week before it's eligible for layaway.
