I'm driving to Vancouver from Seattle tomorrow (for just the night and next day I think), and was wondering if there's anything going on we should check out? I'll be with my sister, BIL, and their 3 and 5 year old. I know about Daiso and I'm am definitely making them go there no matter what and the suspension bridge looks really beautiful, but anything else family-ish (but not boring for anyone over 7) we should check out? Thanks so much,

if you are into sewing you should try the dressew dountown, and there is the best button shop down the street called button button!

but what else are you looking to do??

thanks kayla  Smiley button button sounds wonderful and i definately want to check out dressew... as for what we're looking to do- that's the thing, i don't know what there is to do. like the usual sightseeing stuff i guess, and stuff thats fun for kids?

ok well....
Daiso is lots of fun for all ages, its two floors of fab finds!
suspension bridge, i took some family that was in town and we all loved it!
Diaso is in Richmond, and Steveston is in the south west corner, its a nice little fishing village with a museum and a grest wool shop called wool and wicker
downtown, where the dressew and button button are is in "historic gastown" there is a steam clock (witch i think is on the fritz) and there is storium witch is an "intreactive" musseam that has actors and different things going on, and its underground!
i really wnat to go its all the history of the provience, i've heard that its great, but i've also heard that its a little pricier! but i think that you should be able to get a coupon at a tourist office.
so i hope that this is of some help, i'm sure that there are other things that i could tell you, but its early and i'm at school, so i have to go!!!

sorry about the spelling!!

Granville Island is great fun. Lots of food, sometimes music. Opus, a great art store, paper-ya a cool paper store, and there's a bead store right by it.

my dad made the steamclock! like many things born in 1975, it's a little tempermental Wink. it's up for a big overhaul soon i think. AND, you can say that a craftster's dad made it! come on, that's pretty cool. Cheesy

that so cool that you dad built the steam clock!!!

i meant no disrespect though!!

oh and by the way since we are talking about things that are going on in the city!
the fall "spend on trend" is coming up soon, over at the heritage hall on Main street!! its cool i've been once before and a whole bunch of local designers get together and sell some of the things that they have made!

and on the last sunday of the month (witch has passed!) there is portebello (sp??) west down at the plaza of nations (i think!!!) has anybody gone to it??? 
and if so whats is it like??
I'm going to try to go next month!!!

when is the "spend on trend"? i went over to heritage hall last saturday thinking that i heard there was a craft sale going on, and when the doors were locked i went next door and spent $15 at urban source! Undecided danger.

there's a cool clothing swap going on this saturday at wise hall called swap-o-rama-rama. there will be sewing machines, screenprinting, and diy workshops-- including a workshop by the seamrippers craft collective on making underwear from old t-shirts. spread the word yo!
