Urban Glamour Market - a Mint Events Vancouver event!

The Urban Glamour Market on July 14th was a successful one!  People came out and shopped, ate some appetizers, enjoyed delicious drinks, took pictures at the photobooth, did some networking and shopped some more!  The atmosphere was perfect - thanks to Terracotta Modern Chinese Restaurant for setting the mood.

The goody bags for the first 50 customers were a huge hit!  It included items from Black Kat Orchids, LemonPie, herrohachi tees, Damsel in DisDress, Got2be Boutique, Dolce Delights, Voltage, Gourmet Cuisine, Mighty Ugly, Hair Envi, Bisou MUA and Trinklets Creations.

Le Studio was there with their unique type of photobooth!  Everyone had a ton of fun posing for the camera and take-home prints were developed in just 10 seconds!  Le Studio will be spotted at many more MEV events to come.

Charles de Jesus took some really great photos throughout the night!  He provided me with all the photos and they are now shared on my Facebook.  For an UNedited job, these photos are awesome.  View his website to see more of his work.

Trinklets Creations provided lovely tablecloths for each of the vendors as well as the Advertising Booth and Registration table.  They do work for weddings, banquets, etc.  Check out the website for their reasonable costs!

There were tons of door prizes to be won and the lucky winners received gifts from herrohachi tees, Black Kat Orchids, Croisette jewelry, Moddest Goddess jewelry, Damsel in DisDress, POOQ, Got2be Boutique, Love, Death and Sacrifice and Arbonne!

The next Urban Glamour Market will be happening at the same venue, Terracotta on 52 Alexander St in Gastown, on Wednesday, August 18th from 7:00-10:00pm!  Get there on time as there will be another awesome goody bag and lots of door prizes to be won throughout the night!  Stay tuned for more details.

My finds at the Portobello West market

Another long overdue blog for ya'll...hehe I attended the Portobello West market at the end of May and was quite impressed!  There were tons of vendors selling everything from clothing to lotions to jewelry.  There was no chance of me leaving empty-handed.
I walked around most of the market before I made my first purchase.  Was tempted to buy a LOT but I thought I'd scope out the place before I end up buying one item for every table...and there were like, 50 tables!

My first purchase was from Bling Squared!  A couple owns the company (though the wife wasn't there) and they have a ton of unique designs.

For $30, I got a super cute glass sculpture Octopus necklace!  They also had pandas, ninjas, piggies, mice, and a couple others.  Super unique, super fun!  If I ever saw them again, I think I'd purchase the ninja octopus :)

My next & final purchase was from herrohachi tees!...which also happens to be a friend's friend (didn't realize until AFTER I purchased it) who I had met a few days earlier at the Kitty Candyland event!

My boyfriend & I purchased our first matching tees...haha They are so awesome that we couldn't resist.  Each of our tshirts came in a cute chinese takeout box, sealed with the "herro?" sticker.

What a creative business idea!!  Check out herrohachi tees' Facebook page and soon to be launched website.  Plenty of other cool designs at very reasonable prices.  Their stuff is so awesome that I have invited them to my event, the Urban Glamour Market!  If you live in Vancouver, I hope that you will come out to support, drink a little, eat a little, and shop a lot!  This event is also made to be a social/networking event where companies will be showcasing and selling their products.  I am very excited about it as I know it will be as super fun night!

Tomorrow night, I am determined to play around w/ my new nail art expect a post on how that goes soon ;) Have a great week, everyone!
