Events, Vender Calls and the Toronto Craft Alert

The Toronto Craft Alert writes one of our favorite blogs and is a great resource to artists, artisans, craftspeople, makers and buyers in and around Toronto. The bloggers are taking a well-earned break, a 6 month hiatus. We'll miss them while they are off-line, re-vamping the site. In the meanwhile, they are encouraging people to take full advange of the TCA forum as a way to communicate with one another.

Whenever we've been contacted by organizers of arts, crafts or vintage shows (both team members and not) we've been happy to pass on the information. Especially during the TCA hiatus, we at the T.E.S.T. blog would like to encourage anyone to let us know if you are looking for local hand-makers and vintage sellers. We will help get the word out to the Toronto Etsy Street Team and all readers of this blog, or our twitter feed or fans of our Facebook fan page.

Upcoming events include:

    Rock n Roll Circus Burlesque
    El Mocambo (Main Stage)
    464 Spadina Ave.
    Toronto, ON

    AUGUST 8th, doors at 8pm.

    THE MATADORS, one of Canada's Primo INDEPENDENT bands for the past 10 years. FORESIGHT FOR THE BLIND is gonna rip your ears off and put you to bed. SINISTER TRAILER PARK MAGIC is the best kept secret since the MELVINS. GRAVEYARD JUNKIES are gonna open the show @ 9:15pm.
    We are featuring the lovely ladies of the accomplished and beautiful...

    ATOMIC CHERRIES burlesque troupe.

    And we could be featuring you! In a last minute addition we have decided to add a small vendor area to the fun and games. So if you happen to make and sell something that you think would fit into our mismatched troupe of misfits sign on up.

    SPACE IS VERY LIMITED. The first 5 people who meet the requirements of the show will be selected. Interested? Here’s what we’re looking for:

    - small handmade items, this is a trunk show, so tables will only be 14”x19”
    - all vendors must provide their own display (think small suitcases, wire bins, whatever works on the surface size we’re providing)
    - items should work with the theme of Rock n Roll Burlesque Circus (check out the bands if you need a better idea of the crowd that will be attending)
    - the venue is 19+ so unfortunately all vendors must be legal.

    If you’re interested send an e-mail to with the following information:

    - your name/company name and a brief description of what you do
    - description of the goods you would like to sell at the show, including a price range.
    - 3 photos or links to photos of your goods.

    Since the show is coming up so fast and we’re all dealing with limited space, tables are only will only cost $10 a piece!! Space is very limited so sign up fast.

  8. Thanks Lindsey!
    I've posted this to the front page of the blog to make sure people see it.


    p.s. best kept secret since the MELVINS eh? Hmmmm.....
