Etsy Made in Canada Pop Up – Halifax edition

This past weekend I took part in the Etsy Made in Canada Pop Up at the Halifax Forum and it was incredible! I had no idea what to expect and was so pleasantly surprised by pretty much all aspects of the show.  First off,  the organizers were amazing.  They did such a bang up job putting it all together and keeping it all organized. A HUGE thank you to Oh My Handmade , Silver Lily Jewelry and all the rest of the volunteers and shops that made this all happen !
Secondly,  it was great to see and meet some of the local sellers that I’ve only seen online. It made me realize how big the craft community is in this province,  it’s really impressive and makes you really proud to be part of such a talented community.
And lastly,  holy cow there were so many people who showed up! The line up before we opened wrapped around the building. We were immediately flooded and busy pretty much the whole time. It was amazing.
I think the response all around,  from vendor and customer alike,  was super positive and I’m pretty sure from reading some reviews from the rest of the Made in Canada pop ups that this will no doubt happen again.
Here are a few pics I took with my handy dandy little phone…

I own and operate Mule Mother Books- an independent bookbindery specializing in handmade multi purpose books that make life a little more organized. In addition I also do limited edition custom publishing, teach book making workshops and do book repair in my home studio in the North End of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Aside from my full time bookbinding gig, I am a full time momma and part time house cleaner, and as if all this did not keep my busy enough, I also love some good ole home fermentation, making art, diddling stringed instruments and singing a tune... Once upon a time I trained as a jazz vocalist and still thoroughly enjoy busting out my pipes from time to time when the spirit moves me.
