Etsy's MADE IN CANADA DAY Event : Winnipeg Edition

Yesterday marked the official launch of Etsy's Made in Canada Day event. WEST teamed up with Compendium Artist Market to help bring in 3000 people through the doors of the St James Civic Centre!!


Thank you to Michael's Polo Park for sponsoring the Activity Room. Also big thanks to Sharon of Art on a Whimsy for her wire wrapping make & take!

A huge thanks to Ruth of Periwinkle Dzyns and Ryan of Compendium Artist Market for organizing what turned out to be an incredibly successful day!

With over 1/3 being proud WEST members, the 100% Etsy Seller list included: 

Did you receive a postcard in the mail and enter our draw? Thanks to Canada Post, these mailers got sent out at random within the Winnipeg region, giving lucky recipients a chance to win a $100 Etsy gift card! Winner will be announced and notified shortly via Etsy Canada.

Thank you ALL who helped make this a day to remember!
