Shop 78 Vancouver-based Etsy sellers at a pop-up marketplace at Robson Square this September.

What: Etsy Made in Canada Marketplace
Where: UBC Robson Square (800 Robson St, Vancouver)
When: Saturday, September 26, 2015 from 10:00am to 5:00pm

Visitors will be able to shop local favourites such as province-shaped cutting boards from Love my Local, watercolour animal prints from Triple Studio, and bold infinity scarves from Veespoke.
“We were thrilled by the success of Etsy: Made in Canada in 2014 and can’t wait to see the marketplaces across the country once again this fall,” says Erin Green, Managing Director, Etsy Canada.
Each market across Canada– from Salt Spring Island, to Hamilton to St. John’s– is powered by a dedicated Etsy Team and key partners like Moneris, Canada Post and Airbnb. Each Team’s Leader is committed to reflecting the individual culture of their community, while providing support and insight to members and newcomers looking to open an Etsy shop.
Etsy shoppers unable to make it to their local Made in Canada marketplace can shop participating vendors from across the country on Etsy.com/madeincanada and year round on Etsy.com.
