We walked the Epic Expo this year...

"Bee the Change"
The EPIC Expo is an annual show presented by The Vancouver Sun. The show features businesses with green and eco-friendly concepts... as vendors who were there in the show's 3rd year, we enjoy going back to see what's new.

This year, it looked like the food zone expanded exponentially! There were many, many, great food vendors in attendance. We saw soapstone kitchen appliances, many organic products; mattresses, coffee, jams, chocolate, baby products, and the list goes on. But there was one booth in particular that especially caught our attention...

Bee the Change is an initiative of Whole Foods Market. They strive to bring awareness to the decreasing number of native bees in Canada. Did you know about this? Can you imagine how bitter the world would be without honey?

Of course we had to swing by the fashion zone. We were a wee bit sad because it felt like the fashion zone got a little smaller this year.  However, we did spot the SWFDS - Sheila Wong Fashion Design Studio booth. They were equipped with sewing machines and it was very kuol to see a live sewing workshop take place right then and there at the booth. Next to SWFDS, we found darling little clutches by Davie and Chiyo:

Adorable yes? A bride-to-be would LOVE this.

So were you a vendor at the Epic Expo this year? Or did you attend the show? Share your EPIC experience with us!

p.s. Attending the WE Vancouver spring cocktail mixer tonight at Bin 492. Although, I don't quite feel like wearing a cocktail dress...maybe it's because of this cold rainy Vancouver weather. I just might be a rebel and break the dress code tonight...
