Mark September 26 on your calendar: That’s the day of the nationwide Etsy: Made in Canada marketplace. Etsy artisans (last year there were more than 1,200 purveyors of all things handmade/ homemade/lovingly crafted) set up shop across 34 Canadian cities for a one-day made-local love fest. To see who’ll be bringing the goods in your town, check out etsy.com/madeincanada.
Watch out for Things From Secret Minouette Places, the shop of Torontobased Ele Willoughby, who uses carving knives to create colourful block prints that are equal parts history lesson and tonguein-cheek vintage Canadiana. h
