We’re still waiting on a date for our Virtual Labs trunk show, but we’re hoping it’ll be sometime in May!

I’m also thinking of making the layout of this blog a little more “shopper-friendly”. Right now it’s divided into Handmade, Vintage, and Supplies. I’d like to make pages listing our sellers in categories that will make it easier for customers to find what they want. Examples include Clothing, Jewelry, Cards & Stationery, Edibles, Toys, Art and Prints… feel free to leave more suggestions.

The admins will be on tour in Canada for the first weekend of May, and they’ll be in Toronto on Friday, May 1!

EDIT: The Toronto event will be at the Workroom, 1340 Queen West (between Dufferin & Lansdowne), from 5-8 pm on May 1! Hope to see you there!

Check out Shiroiko’s shop before the end of the month — buy two pieces of jewelry and get a pair of earrings ($19 or under) for free!

T.Dot in the spring!

Lake Ontario is melting, geese are eating grass out of muddy puddles, guerrilla gardeners are out with their seeds — and your Etsy Street Team is gearing up to get busy! Watch out for our upcoming meetings and trunk shows, and in the meantime have a sneak peek at our members’ springtime offerings:

We will soon have a team profile page on Etsy, and if all goes as planned there will be a team brainstorming and recruiting chat in the Virtual Labs sometime early in December! Watch this space for scheduling notices…

Hello, Toronto!

21 November 2008

Welcome to the new Etsy Street Team for Toronto, the surrounding area, and anyone else who does business through Etsy here in the Big Smoke! It’s a big city and it’s easy to feel a little bit lost, so we’re here to help you find each other.

By joining this team, Etsy sellers can:

  • get listed so that local buyers can find you in the sea of Etsy
  • get featured in our blog
  • join mailing lists and network with your peers in handmade, vintage, or supplies
  • find out about local shows, shops, and consignment
  • find people to share show tables and supply orders
  • and much more as we think of it!

What you won’t have to do here:

  • pay membership fees — we want this to be open to as many Etsians as possible, from all walks of life and all price ranges
  • participate in contests or challenges, or contribute to blogs — you participate as much as you want to, when you want to

We are looking for a few good volunteers at the moment. Specifically, we’d love to have two or three people for each Etsy area — handmade, vintage, and supplies — to moderate mailing lists. Send LittleRaven a convo through Etsy if you’re interested. It won’t be terribly busy, but we’d like to have at least two people moderating each list so that we can cover each other’s absences.
