On Saturday, September 26, 2015 Etsy, the much-loved online craft marketplace, is hosting a series of pop-up craft markets across Canada, including one in Vancouver.

The Vancouver version of the Etsy: Made in Canada Market will be held this Saturday at Robson Square in the centre of Downtown and will feature some of the amazing craftsters who call Vancouver home. Whether you’re looking for some early holiday gift ideas, unique birthday presents, or just a little something for yourself, the Etsy Craft Marketplace in Vancouver will be a great place to support local entrepreneurs.

This is the second year that Etsy is hosting these pop-up markets across Canada. Last year, the inaugural Vancouver event was held at Robson Square and attracted more than 5,000 attendees.

For 2015, the Etsy market will be held in the same location at Robson Square (here’s hoping for sun!) and will feature over 70 vendors showcasing and selling a variety of goods. You’ll be able to find soaps, clothing, jewellery, pottery, food, handmade cards, and so much more.

The market will be happening in 33 different cities across the country, turning September 26th into the unofficial “Buy Some Crafts” Day!

The market will be held from 10:00am to 5:00pm on Saturday and will feature a few fun bonus events throughout to give you a chance to win an Etsy gift bag full of lots of free goodies. The first contest will have you looking for a hidden orange ticket that will score you a free prize. So get your sleuthing skills honed up before the event.

The other contest will take a bit more effort and includes:

1. Collect 3 stamps on your Etsy Made In Canada stamp card.
2. Take a photo of your experience at the market and use the hashtags #EtsyVancouver AND #EtsyMarketFind.
3. Your stamp card will be the entry for the draw to win a gift basket.

Worth the effort for the chance to win some sweet, handmade swag!

If you’re even remotely interested in unique, hand-made goodies, you’ve got to check out the Etsy: Made in Canada market this Saturday, September 26th at Robson Square from 10:00am to 5:00pm.
