Sharing is caring!

The Antisocial Online Market is a great way to shop and support local, all from the comfort and safety of your own home.

And it’s coming to you just in time for all your holiday shopping needs!

The Creator of the Antisocial Online Market

Laura Reimer, owner of Blyss by Laura, a much-loved maker at many local craft markets, was at a loss of how she was going to interact with her shoppers this past Spring with COVID-19 curtailing the market scene.

Makers, creators, and artists of all types rely on markets to share their wares, and shoppers enjoy being able to purchase locally made goods from a variety of makers in one stop. Figuring out a way to make this happen was an utmost priority for Laura.

So she went online instead and curated an all Canadian market featuring makers from coast to coast all through a Facebook page.

It was a way for people to support micro-businesses while staying safe at home and an alternate way for makers to showcase their amazing creations doing the same.

The Spring Antisocial Online Market turned out to be a roaring success with over 1000 shoppers attending virtually each day of the 3-day shopping event.

So much so, Laura is bringing the online market back just in time for holiday shopping to begin!

The Holiday Antisocial Online Market

The holiday market takes place using a Facebook group site starting November 13 at 9:00 am PST. During this time, vendors will post their beautiful items to the site and shoppers can browse and purchase the creations, as well as interact with the vendors.

All purchases are shipped directly to you and can be shipped across Canada and the US.

40+ vendors from across Canada are participating in the Holiday Market, so as a shopper, you have plenty of options and opportunities to find that perfect gift.
