Fort Langley Valentine’s Day market scheduled for Feb. 12

Fort Langley Family and Friends is hosting a Valentine craft fair and flea market on Sunday, Feb. 12 a the Fort Langley Community Hall.

Doors open at 9 a.m. and the event runs until 5 p.m.

The Fort Langley Family and Friends hosted its first successful Christmas craft and flea market in December, and is welcoming vendors and musicians to the February event, said organizer Dianne Jones.

“We are a mix of local, First Nations and people who love crafting and flea markets,” Jones said.

“We do it for the love and therapy of crafting, some are doing it to donate to their favourite cause while others find it a way to connect to community where social media is creating a disconnect,” she said.

“It’s a great place to visit and find new inspiration.”

She came up with the simply to fill a need, she said.

“I had items to sell and could not afford the higher priced markets.

“I charge a minimum amount for the tables and in return I ask that everyone contribute to create a successful event. I am turning the clock back to a time when every action did not have a dollar sign attached to it and everyone worked together,” Jones said.

This time, the group has invited local musicians to play during the day.

“Come in out of the cold and buy from local vendors, listen to great music and visit the town just in time for Valentine’s Day,” she said.

In keeping with the month of February and heart attack awareness the group will be setting up a donation table for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
