Craftedvan is Born
Craftedvan is created by Diana and Erica, two women from Vancouver BC, who have a common love for crafting up a storm! What initially started from a love of creating handmade gifts for their friends and family, turned into something bigger when they decided to they wanted to spread their joy of crafting with more people!
First Craft Fair
Craftedvan participated in their first craft fair at Simon Fraser University's Christmas Residence Craft Fair. They sold all sorts of products, including crocheted owl hats, ornaments, and, yes, magnetic bookmarks, which proved to be a hit!
Live on Etsy
They took the jump to create their online presence on Etsy. They sold various different handmade products and eventually made the call to focus on magnetic bookmarks.
First time in Stores
Their creations make it to the store shelves for the first time! It was so exciting to be featured at one of their favourite local shops that they've always admired, Front and Company!
Make It Vancouver!
One of their goals was to be accepted into one of the largest western Canadian craft shows, Make It. Their first show was a hit and they've been participating at every Vancouver show since.
20,000 Sales Online
They were super excited to reach 20k sales on Etsy! To celebrate, they created this special 20-coffee-donut and gave 200 of them away!
1st Craft Fair Away From Home
With suitcases full of products, and hearts full of excitement, Craftedvan headed to Edmonton for their first craft fair away from home.
OOAK Show in Toronto
Craftedvan participated in Toronto's One of A Kind Show, one of the largest craft shows in Eastern Canada. Returning for 4 more years, they learned about shipping pallets, creating epic booth setups, and learning to live through 11 days of craft show madness together! They also met many new faces and life-long friends.
Launched The Read Happy Plan
They created their very own Subscription plan, that mailed a new set of themed bookmarks each month to those who subscribed. It pushed them to be extra creative every month and was so much fun to seal and ship!
25,000 Sales Online
They celebrated 25k orders on our Etsy! In celebration, they designed this special limited-edition gorilla bookmark to give away to customers.
First Walled Booth
With the help of some talented family members, they were able to upgrade to wood walls and shelves. Along with designing and painting the booth, they got to learn how to ship a pallet too!
NYC National Stationery Show
Craftedvan's dreams of showcasing at the National Stationery Show came true and before they knew it, they were on their way to New York! They got to showcase to world-wide stationery and gift shops and were amongst shops such as Rifle Paper Co. and Hallmark.
