Category Archives: Events

etsyvancouver

We will once again be a vendor at the Etsy Vancouver Market: Made in Canada event on Sept 24 and 25! This will be our 3rd time participating and we couldn’t be more excited! If you ever attended one of the previous events as a customer or vendor you will know exactly how we feel. This market is one of our most favourite markets to attend because of the atmosphere, vendors and lovely people that come and shop.

This year the Etsy Vancouver Market will take place over two days and is located in the beautiful Pipe Shop building in North Vancouver. So now you have two days to come visit over 90+ vendors and make an awesome day of it. There will be swag bags given away again this year to the first 50 shoppers each day and a scavenger hunt to win an amazing gift basket filled with handmade goodies.  You will have a chance to win one of our cute canvas tote bags in the gift basket or one of our limited edition button pins for this years market in some of the swag bags.

Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a well rested and lovely Holidays! 2015 was such an amazing year for us from our first wholesale order from Kelly of Little Blue Canoe to being featured on Etsy’s IG feed.  Thank you for your constant support!  We’ve already started dreaming up and planning ideas to make 2016 even better!

To start off the year we have an awesome announcement for you all. As you can tell from the title of this blog post…our amigurumi stuffed keychains are on display right now at the RESOBOX World Amigurumi Exhibition in NY!  Already in its second year, this exhibition showcases amigurumi from talented artists all around the world. This year the theme is crocheted culture. Where artists would create amigurumi pieces that showed the culture of where they are from such as cultural clothing, national colours, landscape etc.

For this exhibition we sent some of our orca whales. Orca whales are often associated with the West Coast of BC.

Orca whale plush keychains - inspired the lovely whales in our local waters in British Columbia, Canada. Have you seen them stocked in our Etsy shop along with our blue whales?
We also sent some of our Mint Mint bunnies, ice-cream bears and fluffy bunnies as well.
If you are in the area be sure to check out this wonderful exhibition. Imagine a room filled wall to wall with amigurumi. And if you spot something you like you can purchase it! Wish we could visit the exhibition in person!

Please feel free to share pics with us if you spot our amigurumi there hanging out with other awesome amigurumi friends.

Last month we had the privilege of being a vendor once again at the Etsy Vancouver Made In Canada Market at Robson Square in Vancouver, BC.  It was such a whirlwind day full of excitement! We were lucky that it was nice and sunny on that day despite being famously known as ‘Raincouver’. There were plenty of shoppers that came to check out and support the local Etsy shops. Etsy Vancouver just recently released some stats and this year there were 4x the number of attendees than last year! We didn’t get a chance to walk around to see all the vendors and our friends but we did manage to quickly check out the following Etsy shops:

This was just a teeny tiny selection of all the Etsy shops that were selling that day. We really wish we could’ve visited every booth! We’re already so excited for next years market! It has grown so much in just 2 short years. Big thanks to the Etsy Vancouver team and the volunteers that day for pulling off such a successful market!!

And of course a big heartfilled thanks to everyone who came by our booth and supported us! It was great meeting new friends, seeing familiar faces and finally meeting some fellow IG followers! You help shape what Momomints is today. THANK YOU!
