Hard to believe that this week marks exactly one year since my shop was interviewed and featured by Etsy. Acknowledging that proud past event puts some much needed wind in my sails, and I am so excited for fall & winter, now that I have proper health and a positive mindset to create! Speaking of Etsy, you know that I am always thrilled to contribute or participate with this awesome company whenever possible (you may remember my fabulous trip to Toronto when Etsy first joined forces with One of a Kind). It’s always so much fun to meet other online sellers, the representatives of this wonderful company, and to also have the ability to share more about NMF with Etsy right behind me. I am stoked to announce a quickly approaching event that I can add to my Etsy roster: Etsy Made in Canada. In over 22 cities on September 27, Etsy will be celebrating the unique art and artists across Canada through this special pop-up event. I will be stationed in Kelowna, at the gorgeous Sandhill Winery downtown on 1125 Richter Street (pictured above) and will be setting up shop with over a dozen other Etsy sellers. The focus of this event is to connect buyers with local makers, to allow them alternatives to the big box stores and give them the opportunity to support genuine Canadian makers. Click the cute little promo video on this webpage to learn more or to see a list of the other cities participating in this awesome nation-wide event. If you are from the Okanagan area, I would absolutely love to meet you at this event, so mark your calendar!
