Family Lifestyle | #EtsyMadeInCanada

I’ve posted about Etsy before and now they’re gearing up to host an event like none other! The first ever Etsy Made In Canada! On Saturday, September 27th, 23 locations across Canada will host a one-day marketplace, bringing together local Etsy sellers and communities in celebration of the country’s maker movement! There will be large markets at MaRS (135 local Etsy sellers) and OCAD in Toronto, and Ottawa is actually hosting the largest of the markets across Canada, featuring 158 local Etsy sellers at Bell Sensplex! Can you say WOW?! What an opportunity to find some completely unique items and, my favourite part, save on the shipping! With 158 local Etsy sellers under one roof, just think of all the fun things you’ll find!

Family Lifestyle | Muffymade

One of the things I really love is having something that no one else does! Ever since I was little, I always loved having custom made (by my mom) clothes, one of a kind bags, or a unique piece of art. Now that I’m an adult, and a mom, I love it even more! I’ve always looked for pieces for Lyric that I know someone else won’t have. Whether it’s making curtains from sheets, custom blankets, or buying his clothes from independent sellers on etsy, I love knowing that he won’t match the crowd. He was definitely born to stand out! I came across muffymade, and instantly fell in love with the concept! Completely custom items!

Family Lifestyle | Did You Say Road Trip??

If you haven’t heard of Etsy, I’m not sure we can be friends! haha! Etsy is where the creative people who actually do the crafts they pin on Pinterest (and do them well) to then sell them! They have everything and anything! Want a mug that says “Hello? Is it tea you’re looking for” with a picture of Lionel Richie’s face on the other side (my personal favourite!)? They have it! Want the CUTEST outfit for your lil one’s 1st birthday cake smash photoshoot? They have HUNDREDS! Want to find a vintage Fisher Price cash register, and not one of the new ones they’re making to look vintage? They have that too! With vendors from all over the world, Etsy has become the go-to for all things creative and one-of-a-kind! This summer you can experience the fun of discovering new things on Etsy in person in your home town! With Etsy’s first ever #EtsyRoadTrip you can meet and mingle with some of your favourite sellers while shopping their one-of-a-kind pieces on the spot!
