If you were not around this last Saturday....you missed the big show.
The 3rd annual flagship Etsy: Made in Canada show.
Hundreds of small business owning artisans all across Canada, taking time from making things to sell to the masses!
It was a fun show - and SUPER BUSY!
It was also MY BIRTHDAY!
So if you missed it...
The show was co-hosted by the Toronto Etsy Street Team and 416Hustler - and they did a great job - I was very happy!
The event was at the MaRS Building...which as you will see in my FEW photos, was pretty neato!
It was wonderful to see so many Etsy artisans!!
What a crazy busy day!
Met loads of great people....but it was super packed - so there want a lot of time to check stuff out!
Here are the photos I promised:
See what I mean? I took the hall shots at 4 different times in the day!!! BUSY!!!!
Now...a complaint I had......the booths on my side were all right over the cold air grates.....
Honestly....I kinda felt like this all day long:
No....I wasn't wearing a dress.....but DAAAAAAMMMMN it was windy on top the grate!!! Eventually I had to do something....it was CCCCCCOLD! (that is me stammering from the frigid air!) I kid you not.....it also felt like this:
I put down a blanket....and that helped me from freezing solid...although it did look a tiny bit like I was having some kind of strange picnic - or perhaps like I was a homeless person....
IT WAS FINE. RAMSHACKLE - but it worked!
I did make a small error in judgement beginning this NEW piece though.....
I had to explain what it meant.......
I guess it is kinda too "gay" for everyone to get??
I had not thought that it would be something I would need to explain the mechanics of! BUT.
Note to self going forward.
On my short lunch - husband came to relieve me whilst I crammed down a turkey sammie. i became TRANSFIXED with the escalator.......
IT was really really memorizing!!!!!
(could be I didn't have enough sleep though....)
THIS was what it looked like when I came back!!!
Which was great!
Thanks to all the great people I met!
Thanks to husband for taking care of me!
Thanks to all the folks who organized the show, it was a nice quality show, and your effort did not go unnoticed!!
OH.....and thanks to everyone that came out to support the me!!
See you soon!
