Are you an artisan looking to expand your business? Have you wandered through the One of a Kind Show & Sale and felt that your handcrafted products should be the show’s next smash hit?
Etsy.com and Torontoist are looking for you via our #LaunchedonEtsy open call.
We’re recruiting new, talented makers and creative types from across Ontario to present your products with Etsy at the spring 2016 edition of the One of a Kind Show & Sale, which will runs March 23-27, 2016 at the Enercare Centre at Exhibition Place in Toronto.
All you need to do to apply to be selected is open a shop on Etsy and tag your new products on Instagram with the hashtag #LaunchedonEtsy between and now (or, if you sensed this contest was coming, if you’ve opened an Etsy shop in Ontario since October 15, 2015) and January 27, 2016. The three best new shops chosen by our panel will receive a free booth in the Etsy section (valued at $750) at the spring 2016 One of a Kind Show & Sale.
Participating in the Etsy section brings plenty of advantages to your shop. You’ll receive direct exposure to 60,000 shoppers, including bloggers, buyers, galleries, and media. You’ll star in your dedicated artisan profile on the One of a Kind’s website, which includes an image gallery and links to your Etsy shop and business website. You’ll enjoy support from the Etsy seller community, and access Etsy section alumni.
To lighten your travel load, each booth in the Etsy section includes:
A 4’ x 2.5’ table for displaying and selling your work
Individual Etsy signage with booth number
Three exhibitor badges
10 complimentary tickets
Like any open call, there are conditions. You must not have previously participated in the One of a Kind Show & Sale. Accommodations and travel required to participate in the show are not included with your free booth. We are not responsible for any spending sprees incurred as you browse other booths. If you are already an Etsy seller and opened your Etsy shop before October 15, 2015, click here for more information on existing seller applications to the Etsy section at the One of a Kind Show & Sale.
