Montreal Shop Local on Etsy!
"Shop Local" is a feature on Etsy that allows you to search for sellers in any area in the world. Shopping local is a good way to reduce pollution by cutting down on emissions created by the vehicles that ship packages to and fro, and is also a nice way to support local artists! Sometimes you can even contact the artist and arrange for pickup (which saves you some money too) and if you ride a bike or take the bus/metro you're REALLY stepping it up.
In addition to this awesome search function Etsy also asks members from around the world to curate small "Shop Local" articles for their blog (the Storque). The newest addition to this list of articles is the Montreal version, curated by none other than the amazing Yana of Supayana! A big thanks to Yana for putting together a stupendous "Shop Local" article for Etsy including Tyson and myself, yay! Check it out HERE
