Five reasons to check out Weirdos Holiday Market

Weirdos Holiday Market

When: Dec. 14-15, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Where: Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral, 154 East 10th Ave.

Admission: $2 at the door

1. For the weirdo in your life. Billed as “Vancouver’s most unusual holiday gift event,” Weirdos is geared to gift-givers looking for something a little different — maybe a lot different. In all, there are 35 vendors, plus a co-op table featuring products from 10 additional makers, offering products “from the kooky to the macabre.” Rachel Zottenberg, owner of Betamax Gallery and oddities shop This Monkey’s Gone to Heaven, curates the event.

2. Ultraviolet Oddities. Take home a plant holder or other item made out of deconstructed plastic dolls. Or visit Vancouver tattoo artist Lydia K Pysanky for a hand-painted Ukrainian Easter egg, Poplar Studio Pottery for a bizarre yet functional sculptural piece (think tentacles, robots, crows), Fun Men Press for a nerdy print, and/or Patti Moreland for a whimsical textile animal.

3. Weird Santa photos. Besides selling his disturbing T-shirts, Jaik Puppyteeth is presenting a Photos with Santa installation. This is sure to be weird and probably Instagrammable.

4. Tarot card readings. Other attractions include readings by East Van Tala and Ritual and Rose Hip as well as sword-swallowing courtesy of Neil E. Dee’s Danger Thrill Show.

5. Food and drink. No need for a food truck. Weirdos will present a hot dog (meat and veggie) buffet, complete with toppings such as pretzels, chips, banana peppers, fried jalapenos, along with craft beer and more adult and kid-friendly beverage options.
