Etsy Made in Canada
September 23, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm $2
One day pop-up sale will showcase more than 40 local artisans and vintage sellers
Etsy Made in Canada, a nationwide day that showcases local artisans and entrepreneurs is coming to Lethbridge for the first time.
More than 40 local artisans and vintage sellers will participate in the Lethbridge event. Etsy is well-known as a platform that provides creative and vintage entrepreneurs with an opportunity to sell their items around the world.
“Many of the participating sellers only sell online through Etsy,” explains Shauna Hayward of Mad Fish Beads and co-organizer of the event. “This is an opportunity to see some new handmade and vintage items in person instead of virtually.”
The Lethbridge Etsy Made in Canada event will be at La Citie des Prairies, 2104 6 Ave S, from 9 am to 5 pm on September 23. More information about the Lethbridge event can be found at www.facebook.com/EtsyLethbridge/
Some of the sellers included in this year’s event are the Gilded Beard, which features all natural beard-care products, Pink Chicken Creations and Vintage, who sells vintage home decor and hand-quilted bags from Alphagirl Boutique. Other products at the sale will include jewelry, glasswork, woodwork, photography, illustrations, vintage items and more.
“Selling through Etsy has given me the opportunity to connect with people around the world,” says Kaitlyn Hubert of Pink Chicken Creations, “Through Etsy Made in Canada, I’m looking forward to the opportunity to meet people who love quality handmade items in Lethbridge.”
Running since 2014, Etsy Made In Canada will be in 39 cities in every province across Canada this year.
