Hey there, my name is Nada and I’m the Canadian Community Manager for Etsy. Happy Canada Day, everyone! In the spirit of all things Canadian, I thought it’d be cool to celebrate our amazing community by sharing a video of our recent seller meet up in Toronto.

I had an incredible experience meeting all kinds of sellers right here in my neighbourhood and beyond. Some even made the trip out from places like Oshawa, Oakville and Kitchener! Meet ups are not only a chance for sellers to gather and connect, they’re also a rewarding opportunity to learn from one another. I invited three sellers from our community — Arounna Khounnoraj from Bookhou, Sarah Parker from The House of Hemp, and Alison Gledhill from Grace Design, to share their story and engage in a panel discussion about challenges they’ve faced and advice they had. You can check out all the photos over at the Etsy Labs Flickr.

We also thought it’d be a fun idea to film the whole event to capture the spirit of Canadian sellers with the help of our friends at Wood & Wires Productions. Over the next few weeks, we will be releasing more videos featuring interviews with the speakers and clips from the panel discussion — stay tuned with the Etsy Canada Facebook page. In the meantime, check out the video below and be sure not to miss out on the next one! Found yourself in the video? Let us know in the comments below!
