A pleasant surprise about the Make It show was the involvement of the new CANADIAN branch of etsy. Three lovely ladies had an Etsy booth set up right at the entrance, to spread the love and the word about this awesome online marketplace. They were also offering shop critiques and advice to current etsy sellers who were part of the show; I jumped at the chance of having some concrete feedback from people involved with the company and signed up. Friday, the darling Nada (far left), showed up at my booth and said the sweetest things: “Normally I write a novel for people, but your shop is wonderful.” Apart from a quick lesson in Stats (how to apply that knowledge to branding or product creation) and a couple quick ideas about switching some words around in my titles, Nada was impressed with my online space. Elisabetta (middle left) paid me a few compliments as well, and has since contacted me on etsy about a great opportunity this spring (more to come on that in later months). And lastly Evelyn (on the far right) flew all the way from Chicago to check out the event, and gushed that she loved my shop name. Meeting and making connections with these three ladies was such a pleasure! It is so wonderful to see Etsy growing into such a phenomenon. Plus if we have cheerful and creative individuals like these 3 spreading the Etsy love, it is only going to get bigger! If you want to meet or stay in touch with the ladies, find them on twitter @EtsyCA.
