Etsy is Coming to Montreal!

Photo by bananastrudel

Hey all you Montreal crafters, guess who's coming to our fair city? The wonderful folks from Etsy! As part of their initiative to learn more about the global Etsy community they're continuing their world-wide journeys, and this time they're stopping in Canada (Toronto and Montreal). They're basically trying to learn everything they can about the Canadian Etsy seller and what can be done to improve the selling/buying experience.

Three peeps from Etsy will be coming up on May 2nd (Toronto on May 1st) including Sara Hicks, Etsy's VP of Product, Chad Dickerson, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and Liz Wald director of international business development. Want to be part of this great meet up? HQ is happy to be hosting this event, so give us a quick RSVP in the comments if you're interested, then come on down Saturday May 2nd (yes, the day after our May vernissage) and let's have a chat in the gallery about our favorite handmade site. All folks are welcome, even if you haven't RSVPd, we'd just like to get an idea of how many croissants to buy and how many chairs to set up. The meet-up goes from 11am-1:30pm, so set your alarms and get down to HQ, you can get up early on a Saturday just this once!

Where: Headquarters Galerie + Boutique 1649 Amherst
When: 11am-1:30pm
Why: because you love Etsy
