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!

The NorthWest Fan Fest Artist Alley was definitely one of the most challenging craft markets for Marissa & Sami of Momomints so far! We were both busy with many of our own personal responsibilities outside of Momomints but were both super excited to be part of such an exciting convention at UBC in Vancouver. We even tried our best to fit in by doing a bit of cosplaying ourselves! Sami dressed up as Fluttershy and Marissa dressed up as Totoro (inspired of course by a famous Wesley Chan cosplay outfit).

We wanted to created lots of exciting new products catered toward the Artist Alley market at NorthWest Fan Fest. This included many cute additions like our new Momocub Pouches, Amigurumi Hair Bow Clips, Paperclip Organizers, fridge magnets sets, and the reintroduction of our Momomugs!

It is always a challenge to decide what products to stock up on for events like these. Artist Alley was a 3 day event, running Friday-Sunday and we wanted to ensure that we were well stocked!

We even ran little promotions like the one with our Sketchbook Organizers! Buy a sketchbook, get a free paperclip organizer!

And even with much preparation, many items, including our button pins, Momocub Pouches, Momomugs, Momobunnies, and some styles of our Keycharm Keychains completely sold out!

Despite being drained, being able to see our customers in person and hearing all the great feedback definitely kept us going! We find these markets to be one of the most rewarding parts of running Momomints!
