Hi folks! Here is the vendor application form for our next Etsy: Made in Canada Market. This year we are excited to find a new home for our pop-up in the heart of downtown at Atlantic Place. With amazing natural light and a beautiful view of St. John’s harbour, this unique venue will provide an incredible backdrop for our third Etsy pop-up market. Please don’t feel pressured to submit your application immediately as they will not be juried until every last application is received (deadline is June 25th). This form is a little longer than last year’s, so have a read through carefully to see if it answers any questions you may have before you begin. Good luck! We look forward to reviewing your submissions and can’t wait for our next Etsy: Made in Canada event. Meghan Team Captain for Etsy St. John’s Region Click here or the image above to apply!

Well, folks, this all starts in exactly one month!! This year’s show is a little different. Two amazing days. One hundred super-talented vendors. A completely different line up of vendors each day. You might as well keep that entire weekend free! The venue this year is Maritime Hall at the Halifax Forum. Complete list of vendors can be found here: Etsy Made in Canada 2016 If you can, please rsvp on our facebook event page. You can get there simply by clicking the image above.
Effective immediately we have decided to no longer partner with Etsy due to changes in values within the company. We will continue to host an annual Maritime Makers | Made in Canada market each September along with smaller regional markets and events throughout the year. While the new fee increase and tiered pricing plans that take effect on July 16 concern us our biggest difficulty and the reason for divestment is the lack of consultation, transparency, or ethics related to not only this change but many others. A short list of recent changes include (sources available here): shareholder takeover that forced out previous CEO and replaced with former Ebay executive lapse of B-Corp Certification mass layoffs termination of values-aligned and/or community programs such as the Etsy Advocacy team, Etsy Maker Cities, Etsy Wholesale, Etsy Studio, and the Indigenous Seller handbook overnight decision to ban Indigenous crafts using traditional materials moving the Etsy main office in Brooklyn to a building owned by Jared Kushner & receiving investment from politically motivated shareholders such as Jason Greenblatt the Special Representative for International Negotiations for the current US government. Canadian makers are already experiencing shipping and customs delays or the inability to cross the […]

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! A sample of the vendors on Sunday included: (clockwise from top right) EweBoots, BerkeleyBrown, MakerModeAprons, SarahDuggan We were also so lucky to have with us again this year the following partners: The Nook on Gottingen who kept us fed; the Lunenburg Makery who ran a fabuslously fun needle-felting workshop on Sunday; and Make […]

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 […]
