That’s a Wrap

Posted by

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!

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!
