Our Team's First Ever Meet-Up

Our Vancouver Island Etsy Team had our very first meet-up on April 22nd, 2011 and a great time was had by all.   We shared our experiences, successes, tips, craft fair info and marketing ideas.  Nikki of Nikki Designs on Etsy kindly opened her beautiful home to all of us and was a very personable and gracious host.  Thanks again Nikki!  

Everyone brought delicious finger food and a few of our handcrafted items to show one another.  Several members of our team were also donating some of their handmade items or a portion of their sales to the Japan Relief Efforts.  Our fundraising efforts, combined with other Etsyians from around the world, brought in over $10,000.00 for the cause.  Truly a testament to what can be done when people of like minds come together for a common cause.  There is a lot of power in teams and this is one terrific one!
