Christmas Reindeer Card

Etsy: Made In Canada and beyond

The countdown is on…only 5 days to go…

Etsy-MadeInCanadaLong story short, I opened my Etsy shop Walkers General Store  in May of this year. At the moment there is a small collection of paper goods; handmade notecards, notebooks and art prints. I am planning to expand the shop to include textiles and much more in the very near future but that is another story.

When I first found out about the Etsy: Made In Canada show, I was on the fence about applying. Could I have enough stock by the end of September?  Everything was still so very new to me but I figured if nothing else it would be good exposure for the shop – question mark? As you already know I was accepted to be part of the show and when I received the news I immediately set to work preparing. One of the first things to tackle was the display. I knew I wanted something different something that would ‘feel’ like walking into an old school local mercantile/general store. I also wanted to only use materials that we already had on hand. Personally, I am super happy with the results. The stand alone walls are a little on the heavy side (as in, not easily carried by a single person) and because they sit in concrete piers, they cannot be placed close together.
