On Sept 26th 2015 just before 10 am, I went to take a look at my Instagram feed. Within a few minutes of looking at photos that were just taken on my stream I seen the Craftadian posted a few picture about the Etsy Made in Canada event. In selected cities Etsy was going to put on their very first ever vendors pop up shows. I was REALLY stoked because the company formally known as Made by Hand show which is now Craftadian was posting pictures before the event even opened up to the public. Needless to say I was STOKED that it was only a 10 minute walk away from where I was staying in Burlington.
I sent a message along to Jacqueline Hunter who is the owner and Show Director of Craftadian wanting to know if she would like some Live reviews of the show that day. She was like HECK YA! I did another review for Craftadian the formely -Made by Hand show in Mississauga in 2013 which you and read here <—- as well. My girls had a GREAT time, they were looking at EVERYTHING the Made by Hand show had to offer.
Let the set-up begin … Doors open at 10am@to the public #EtsyMadeinCanada today 10-4 @ Holiday Inn Burlington. #craftadianetsy #craftshow #handmade #madeincanada #etsyca #etsycanada A photo posted by Craftadian (@craftadian) on
I ended up going over at around 1-1:15 that afternoon as the show started at 10am and closes at 4pm. So I still had A LOT of time to look around and mingle with Jacqueline and the vendors. And as you can tell from the picture above that is what it looked like BEFORE the doors event opened. I talked to Jacqueline for a little bit upon my arrival and she let me know it was GREAT that I came a little bit later on into the day as it was PACKED, they even had to put a wait limit on new arrivals that were showing up because the room was so full of customers. Here are just a few pictures and video’s that I did live on my own instagram feed while I was there. I was having a TON of fun.
