Summer's Here! Ready for a Road Trip?
Join the TransCanada Etsy Street Team for their cross-country celebration of Canada Day this year to learn a bit about our country, a lot about our artisans and take advantage of some great specials. And what road trip would be complete without some souvenirs? We've got two amazing prizes on offer for participating buyers -- a fabulous goodie bag valued at over $350 US and a gorgeous t-shirt rug designed and woven by Pegg of Five Forty from t-shirts donated by team members from all across the country. Just check these prizes out!
One of the things that makes our team special is its diversity of sellers: we have textile and fiber artists, soapers, paper-crafters, book-binders, jewelry makers and more, with many of our team members focusing their efforts on eco-friendly and sustainable crafting. There are 20 great participating shops -- spending $10 US in any of these listed during the promotion gets you one ticket into the raffle for our prizes (winners to be announced July 2nd). Or you can get one ticket without purchase by writing a short essay describing your favourite Canadian thing (place, person, food, book, band, artist, etc). Tell us why you love it and what it means to you, then send in your entry by contacting Sara of PiggyTails Stationary through her shop.
You will need to sign up for an Etsy account if you haven't already -- it's free and easy! Check out the step by step instructions here:
