Island Mavins Handmade and Vintage Market is pleased to announce the date and location of our first outdoor market. Make sure you mark this date on your calendar as you won't want to miss this very special event!

Cost: $5.00 per person or $3.00 with a donation of non-perishable goods for the local food bank

Point Ellice House and Gardens is located just off Bay St. right before the bridge at the junction of Hillside Ave. and Pleasant St. Turn in the last white gate to park at Point Ellice House and Gardens. Parking is also available on the street in the surrounding area. 


As an alternative, take the Victoria Harbour Ferry from the inner harbour and arrive right at their dock!


We are excited about having our first market at this very beautiful and historical location. Point Ellice House was owned by the O'Reilly family and was built in 1867.  The house was a gathering spot for Victoria’s social elite, and remained in their possession for 108 years. You can read more about the O'Reilly family here : http://pointellicehouse.weebly.com/about-us.html


*Note: As part of the entry fee tours of the O'Reilly's house will be given, where you will have the opportunity to see one of North America’s largest collections of Victoriana in its original, privileged Victorian home!

  2. HI, my name is Sharon. I am exited to say that I am joining the Island Mavin's Vintage Market. I have been busy creating items (French inspired) and searching for more vintage items. My theme is BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. I will have rusty, shabby items mixed with ribbony,lacy, delicate things. I will be there with my friend Lisa. Lisa and I have been collecting for years and are happy to now share our finds with you. I can also be found at Owens & Co...Just ask for Sharon's section. See you at the market July 15!!
