A Great Success!

Thanks to everyone who came out to Etsy: Made in Canada Chatham-Kent! We had such a great day and the weather was perfect!

Here's a link to an article in the Chatham Daily News about the event:

I'll be posting all of the photos that Kristyn (our Volunteer Captain) took throughout the day. If you have any photos that you'd like to share, post them below! I didn't get a chance to take many photos of everyone, so I'm hoping some of the other volunteers got more photos. I'll update this post as I receive them.

Edit: I've uploaded some photos that vendors have submitted! :)

This wall took 2 weeks and 4 people to make! 

Setting up!

The day is just getting started for Not That Kind of Boxing and The Pike Lake Soap Company!

Our Etsy Info Table and Outreach for Hunger Donation Spot! We moved it later in the day to get it out of direct sunlight. It was a very warm day!
