Made in Canada 2016
Can you guess which company this is?
The company is Etsy – the ‘marketplace where people around the world connect, both online and offline, to make, sell and buy unique goods’ – and they are holding their Made in Canada markets this weekend.
Locally, the Etsy Market has expanded to two days and will be held Saturday the 24th and Sunday the 25th at the Pipe Shop, 115 Victory Ship Way in North Vancouver. It is a great reason to hop on the Sea Bus downtown and cruise over to North Van’s burgeoning Lonsdale area.
Etsy is designed for people to sell creative goods – handmade or vintage wares. If you search the Etsy site for items that have been made in Vancouver, you will find a fittingly eclectic range of offerings.
Today’s Vancouver Etsy results include:
a. Doggy longjohns from johnwear
b. Felted balls from HoneyCanada
c. A Labradorite Levitation necklace from The beautifulnomad
d. Crocheted Vancouver Canucks hats for wee ones
e. Pom pom slippers from Folk Fortune
f. And Country Lilac Garden Vegan Artisan Shea Butter Soap
Happy shopping and good luck to all of the vendors.
