Monday, July 28, 2014

We're getting excited to see Etsy's first ever road trip in their 30-foot custom AirStream. They're planning a four-city Canadian tour called #EtsyRoadTrip. 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.
