Made in Canada | Etsy Event

Etsy invited us to their Made in Canada VIP shopping and cocktail party last Friday, before the big Toronto pop-up sale on Saturday. We discovered many talented artisans based in Toronto and chatted with some of them about their creations. It’s always a treat to shop local and support small businesses.Made in Canada Etsy EventJeffrey from Thorn & Needle knits every potted cactus himself.
