Fall For Local - Community for Entrepreneurs

Fall For Local
Fall For Local - Kelly Turner

Fall for Local (founded by Kelly Turner) is a creative entrepreneurship platform designed to raise awareness of local economy and businesses.  Branches from her movement are located in two major Canadian cities Ottawa and Vancouver where scheduled talks and pop up shops are hosted throughout the year featuring the latest in design, culinary arts and much much more! Our Vancouver location has seen it fair share of innovation, for example, food protein made from crickets, decor and jewelry crafted out of concrete and handmade gifts spun with love and sweat just to name a few.

Check out Fall For Local's upcoming events this coming 2017, also, Konisa Studio will be partaking in the Pop Up Market this coming Spring. We look forward to seeing you join in on the action and supporting all things local!
