Trans-Canada Etsy Team

I'm sure it's completely obvious at this point that I am a HUGE Etsy fan. Like HUGE. Larger than life, HUGE. Massive. Ok, I'm sure you get the point.

You can only imagine my jumps of glee when I was contacted by the publicist for the Trans-Canada Etsy Team. The Trans-Canada Etsy Team represents a group of independent Canadian artists and crafters that sell online through the Etsy.com venue. They’ve made it easy to find beautiful, unique, gifts of all types made by Canadians. Yay!!!! Yay!!!!

You can also visit the Trans-Canada Etsy Team Blog to find out more about our team and to locate team members in your area or province.

"Adding unique and distinctive items to your d├ęcor helps to set your home apart from the house next door. The problem is that distinctive and unique usually isn’t represented on the shelves in big box stores or at the mall. Instead, try choosing handmade items that come straight from an artisan to add originality and warmth to the feel of your home."
- TransCanada Etsy Team

I couldn't agree with you more! Yes, sure we all love the big box stores, but after awhile, everyone and everything starts to look the same, don't you think? Buying home accessories on Etsy, makes perfect sense. You are supporting the local economy as well.

They have put together a few pieces that she enjoys, (see below), and I've chosen some of my personal favorites as well.

Thanks for featuring these Canadian sellers! With the dollar down again it's a better deal to buy Canadian. Love the art!
