#EtsyRoadTrip: Last Stop!

 

Crusin’ down the fast line towards the last stop of the #EtsyRoadTrip seemed like an appropriate time to reminisce on every 90s girl’s favourite road trip flick: Crossroads. In retrospect, our adventures with Team Etsy are (v. loosely) comparable to my teenage guilty pleasure; all roads leading to adventure, good tunes, and most of all ~friendship~. Obviously this makes me the Britney Spears of our off-screen excursion. Not so obviously our hometown proved the perfect backdrop to our tourist-for-a-day foray into all things handmade. Armed with all the tech gear two fashion girls can carry (see above video) we loaded our instax mini, packing extra film for good measure. In the true spirit of FORA, no cookie, cactus, or cuddly pup would go unphotographed. read more…

10 Days of #EtsyRoadTrip

2EtsyHeader

Greetings from the passenger seat!! Today we’re halfway through our #EtsyRoadTrip adventure. For those of you who are bad with directions, that’s at the crossroads of bittersweet and are we there yet?! Even though today marks the semi-completion of our ice cream escapades, if you’re a glass-half-full kinda believer like myself, you know that the midpoint is a time for reflection, a #TBT into the not so distant past (of yesterday). That, and making it halfway also serves as an allegorical trophy for the directionally challenged; “WE MADE IT” inscribed on its figurative base. But let’s not draw attention to that.

Tailing our new BFFs, AKA Team Etsy, we made our way to Ottawa and Kingston with eager hearts and hungry bellies. read more…

On Da Road With Etsy x MTV FORA

EtsyLayout

Pack it up, pack it in. Let me begin. In case you missed it, we’ve hit the road with our buds at Etsy Canada in the name of all things handmande/local/tasty! As you can imagine, when food trucks and covetable handmade accessories collide, it’s one big Pinterest-worthy dream come true. I’m talking ice cream for dinner and handmade treats so sweet you’ll be swearing off big box chains before sundown (Exhibit A: The Angry Weather). And did I mention the airstream?! We’ll get to that, but first a recap of our Etsy-fied excursion from Parc Olympique to Old Port, Montréal.

DISCLAIMER: This post will likely definitely give you roadtrip fever. Lucky for you, we’ve got two stops left on our adventure! You can catch the party in YYZ territory this Friday and Saturday (In food talk that’s Beavertails and Churros, respectively, FYI). read more…
