I read the news today, oh boy




And I was part of it!

This past weekend, I was featured in an article that appeared in the Montreal Gazette about Etsy. I obviously knew about the article since I was interviewed and photographed, but I had no idea how big it would be. It was the feature article in the Saturday Lifestyle section. Jessica Howard did a wonderful job introducing Etsy to Montreal and should give Etsy yet another little boost. You can read the online version here.

I know two of the other Etsy sellers who were featured and I highly recommend their shops. Suzanne Gerrior's Hip Kid shop sells t-shirts that are screenprinted by hand. Celia Cruz sells gorgeous handbags and pillows (of which I'm the proud owner of two) in her PacoandLupe shop.
