The dust has settled after the Etsy Made in Canada 2016 event, and we are thrilled with the outcome. The venue was fantastic- did you see the wallpaper that was created by Kat Frick Miller? Amazing!!! Feedback from event-goers was that the quality of vendors was the best they have seen. And, it was just plain, old FUN! The line-ups started early on Saturday, and remained for much of the day. The first twenty-five through the doors on both days were lucky enough to walk away with one of our awesome swag-bags! A few of the vendors from day one included: (clockwise from top-right) EllePaisley, BetweentheRaindrop, FoxhoundCollection, and MuleMotherBooks. Day 2 saw line-ups once again forming early, and more excitement over the free swag. We also had a whole new set of vendors. Thank you to the many shoppers who came to the event on both days!

Welcome back to Maker Mondays. We had an unexpected hiatus as many of our makers put their shops on hold due to a potential postal disruption. Looks like things will be staying normal for now, so shops are back open, and we are happy to introduce you to another one of our Maritime Makers. Today, you will be meeting Lisa Scrivner of ellepaisley, maker of one of a kind Steampunk Jewelry and Victorian-Inspired accessories. Could you please start with a brief bio about yourself and an intro to your shop. Hi I’m Lisa! I am inspired by fashion photography and rock biographies, fueled by brunch and burgers and amused by kittens, woodland creatures and cute things. I also run ellepaisley.etsy.com where you can find Victorian inspired and Steampunk jewelry and accessories. The aesthetic behind my work is Industrial Romance, a more modern and romantic take on the Steampunk genre. Can you tell us a bit more about your grandfather and uncle, who both helped instill in you this passion for clock-pieces. I started my etsy shop just after my grandfather, Herman, passed away 8 years ago. I was very close with my grandfather and he was an avid watch collector […]
Happy Monday! Happy first day of summer. And a happy belated Father’s day to today’s maker, and all the other Dads out there. Gosh, what a lot of stuff to celebrate. And, I am also so thrilled to introduce today’s Maritime Maker, Adrian of Paradise Papercraft. This feature is particularly exciting for me because as I sit here typing this, one of Adrian’s larger pieces is looking down at me from the wall above. Another of his works graces my cozy reading corner. So, needless to say, it was great fun learning more about an artist whose work I enjoy so greatly. Can you please begin with a brief bio about yourself and an intro to your shop. Hi, I’m Adrian de Montfort, I’m an English expat, now dual Canadian citizen living in Paradise, Nova Scotia. I live in a secluded farmhouse with a husband and kids, chickens, cats and a dog and I cut pieces of card into sarcastic, scientific and yarnarific (that a word?) greetings cards for people who like to send something different. Your journey started with a book, Tale of the One Way Street, a storybook of modern European folktales, illustrated by Papercut Artist Jan Pienkowski. […]
