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!

Etsy Made in Canada Market at Robson Square in Vancouver

Etsy Made in Canada Market at Robson Square in Vancouver

On September 27th 2014 we had the honour of participating in the first nation wide Etsy Made in Canada Pop-up Market. The event took place at Robson Square in Vancouver and in various cities across Canada. It was a beautiful and warm autumn day for this very lovely local craft fair.

It was one day event hosted by Etsy Vancouver and the Emily Carr Etsy Team, that ran from 10am-5pm and featured 57 local artists and crafters. With weather on our side, a great high traffic venue, and great planning and promotion, this was a highly successful event for many of the vendors.

We came well prepared with new products and a whole new booth set-up! Our new set-up featured many wood elements and whimsical details like little mini trees and even a little wooden bench for our MomoBunnies.

We were particularly proud of the new display for our polymer clay keycharm keychains which included new lighting to highlight the shine and colours of our charms. Many people commented on our use of different levels to display our products and we found this to be very effective as this allowed people to see our products even from a distance if they were caught behind a crowd.

Comparing to our previous set-ups, we can definitely see how we’ve grown and how much we’ve learned from being at other markets. We definitely feel more prepared for this event than we had for any previous event!

It was unfortunate that we did not get the chance to do our usual rounds to visit all of our fellow vendors and take photos, but with the event being an extreme success, everyone was quite tied up with customers! Many vendors sold out of items and one vendor even had to pack up early! We were lucky to be neighbors with our friend Emi of ByEmilyAli.etsy.com and were able to grab some quick pictures with her before the event started.

We really wish we had the chance to do a bit of shopping ourselves as there were so many talented vendors at this event! The organizers did a great job! The event also received lots of amazing feedback from social media following the event. A great re-cap blog post was written by Suzie Ridler, many photos were shared on Facebook and Instagram, and kind comments were shared all around on Twitter. A big thanks to Jessica (donutmon) who was kind enough to take this candid photo of us at the Etsy Market. Thanks for being such a sweet fan!

We’ll share more over the next while but would first like to give another big thanks to all of our supporters. It’s such an overwhelming feeling to have customers approach us now and tell us “I follow you on Instagram!”, “Are you M & S?” and recognize us and our brand. Seriously, thank you all so so very much! We can’t say it enough.
