Etsy Canada Spring Sale and Giveaway!


25 independent artists and crafters from all across Canada have teamed up to offer a limited, one week only Spring Sale from May 18th to 24th!

Etsy is one of the largest communities of artisans who sell handmade or vintage goods on the web and our Canadian collaboration is incredibly diverse, from painters to knitters to jewelery makers!

Aside from having fantastic sales all week, we're also going to be doing a HUGE giveaway of 25 different handmade items, one from each shop. At the end of the week we'll announce 5 winners and each one will be sent 5 lovely treats!

How To Enter The Giveaway:

1. You can enter once without a purchase by leaving a comment on this blog post.
2. You will get an extra entry with each purchase (ie. 5 items equals 5 entries)
3. If you blog about our sale and leave a valid link you will get another entry.
4. You can visit each shop involved in the sale, pick a favourite listing from that shop, and then post the link in the comments section on this blog post. This means you can leave 25 links from 25 different shops in the sale and you will get 25 entries into the draw.
