DIY, handmade online superstore Etsy is presenting a unique pop-up concept dubbed Made in Canada. The concept will see marketplaces “pop-up” in 22 cities across Canada on September 27th, and what’s great is that the national marketplace movement is driven by Etsy’s own community of DIY-ers and hand-craft artisans.

In the spirit of celebrating local Canadian artists, Etsy has released a great promo video (above) featuring three sellers (Adhesif ClothingAJMetissage and Rong Designsin their studios in Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto, respectively.

For our readers that live in Toronto, on September 27th a one-day shopping event will take over the MaRS atrium on College Street from 10am to 4pm offering a selection of goods from over 135 vendors. If you’ve never been to an Etsy event, you can honestly expect everythign from kitchen nick-nacks to jewellery.

Hope to see you there!
