Last week Saturday brought about the first ever Etsy: Made in Canada. Twenty Three locations across Canada hosted a pop up marketplace, bringing together local Etsy sellers and communities in celebration of the country’s maker movement. Calgary was one of those cities and I had the privilege of organizing the event with Jillian of Logee Photography.
A job this big required some extra help though, so we enlisted the volunteer hours of Suzanne of Tinged and Leonie of Maple and Oak Designs. On top of that we used the talents of Lindy Turner of Crafted by Lindy to do the decorating for the event.
The event was held at Symons Valley Ranch Farmers Market. The Made in Canada event took place in a large tent area as well as a section of the second level of the market. There were 40 Etsy Vendors in total.
If you were lucky enough to be one of the first fifty shoppers the morning of the market then you got one of our incredible swag bags, filled with goodies donated by the vendors. We had an unanticipated number of shoppers lined up bright and early!
The day was cool and cloudy but despite the less than ideal weather we had crowds!
I’m incredibly thankful to all the hard work put in by my fellow organizers, as well as to Etsy Canada who were a huge support throughout the entire process. Here are a few more shots of the fun that day.
Once again a HUGE thank you to everyone who came out to Etsy: Made in Canada. It was an incredibly fun and successful day thanks to all of YOU! If you’d like to see a list of all the vendors that participated go here.
