#EtsyRoadTrip is coming to town!

Etsy is going on the road for their very first #EtsyRoadTrip and they would love you to help us spread the word and come by to join in on the fun!

 Etsy are embarking on their first ever road trip in a 30-foot custom AirStream to launch #EtsyRoadTrip, a four-city Canadian tour. From August 1 to 9, mobile marketplaces will pop-up in Montreal, Ottawa, Kingston and Toronto featuring Etsy sellers, musicians and local food trucks alongside concerts, product giveaways and more.

They would love local Etsy sellers to come out and represent at these events. If you would like to come by and hangout, participate in DIYs, and meet other sellers, they would love to see you. Feel free to bring your business cards, coupons, and sport the products that you make to show folks. Meet and mingle with Etsy admin and potential customers. They'll have name tags for everyone to fill out so people can identify you with your shop name. See you on the road!

Montreal Aug 1 & 2
Ottawa - Aug 4
Kingston - Aug 5
Toronto - Aug 8 & 9

You can find out all of the info here: etsy.me/roadtrip and don't forget to use their #EtsyRoadTrip hashtag too!
