Shop, Sip and Support Local at the Lovecrafted Valentine's Day Pop-Up

We’ve all been there. Desperate for a last-minute Valentine’s Day gift, we rush to the mall, browse every aisle of every store (twice) and end up buying the same generic gift as the year before.

“A lot of people are looking for unique gifts for Valentine’s Day, but end up buying cards and chocolates because of the lack of options,” says Shreya Jhunjhunwala, organizer of the Lovecrafted Pop-up Shop. “At Lovecrafted, people can buy a handmade gift that was crafted with love for that special someone in their life.”

Hosted by Forth on Feb. 10, Lovecrafted will transform your Valentine’s Day shopping trip from dreaded chore to delightful day out.

Along with a stellar lineup of eight local artisans, the event will feature handcrafted cocktails, a pop-up spa by MC College and an Eat Local Tasting Bar by Flora & Farmer. The first 10 visitors will also get a free swag bag full of local goodies (including a We Heart Winnipeg card!).

Serving up everything from candles to cookies, the curated collection of makers covers all the bases, ensuring you’ll find that special something for that special someone.

It includes Charleston & Harlow (candles), Sarah Sue Design (upcycled women’s wear), Scientific Sweets (cookies), Sarah Neville Studios (greeting cards), Pebble & Dime (jewelry and knits), Rachael Kroeker Ceramics (home decor), CZE by Tania (hair and beard care), and Williams & Rail (airplants and succulents).

In addition to supporting local makers, you’ll also be supporting the local arts community. Twenty percent of every sale at Lovecrafted will be donated directly to ArtsJunktion, a charity that collects and redistributes art supplies that would otherwise end up in landfill.
