Etsy Waterloo Market

Hey guys – two posts in two days. When was the last time I did that?! Probably when Seline and I lived in France. Whew, those were amazing times and I would do anything to be back in France now! But onto the purpose of this post…

Yesterday, I went to RIM Park in Waterloo to check out the big Etsy market!

I volunteered to be one of the photographers and had a great time speaking to vendors and snapping pics of all the incredible work.

There were overΒ 60 Etsy shops from right here in Waterloo Region and the surrounding areas.

These adorable “cupcakes” are actually soaps!

The jewelry was absolutely stunning.

Isn’t this amazing? I wish I had half the talent of any of these vendors. This lady took every single photograph in these bangles, necklaces, bobby pins, and earrings.

Claire has a sewing station set up in her basement, where she creates these gorgeous bags, pencil pouches, and wristlets. I loved how she mixed and matched different types of fabrics and leathers. The next goal? Backpacks!

All of the vendors were very humble and gracious, even though it was nearly 4:00 and the end of a very long and exhausting day πŸ™‚

I really wanted to spend all my cash on a hundred handmade bowls (the grey ones with leaves were my favourite!), but unfortunately the small bowls that I wanted had been sold out. They were quite popular!

It’s probably a good thing I don’t wear jewelry because I might’ve accidentally purchased all of these bracelets.

Some vendors made their own paintings and prints, while others painted with beeswax (amazing!), and a couple even showed me how they created their own magnets, buttons, and pins.

How creative is this?! Chemist-tree makes all of these cool posters and greeting cards using the chemical structures of famous compounds like water, caffeine, and the fats in avocados. How creative πŸ™‚

I also bought a couple hair ties and a pretty handmade headband that I needed. I was also thisclose to buying a reusable sandwich bag. Look how versatile and cute they are!

Other vendors made their own prints.

Cool plates and other neat accessories were also sold.

More handmade jewelry. These pieces are gorgeous! I would love to have one in the form of a keychain.

Many thanks to the awesome vendors who let me photograph them today! You guys really made this event as great as it was. Hope you were able to sell lots and lots.

It was a beautiful day outside, so I’m glad the Etsy market was very popular. There must have been at least several hundred people! RIM Park was the perfect location, overlooking a cute pond and near the bus stops.

Thanks goes to the City of Waterloo, Gifted, The Cobblestone Gallery, The Apollo Cinema, Element Print & Copy and Merrily Designs for sponsoring this event & Etsy Canada for their partnership!

    1. Hahaha were there events like this one when you still lived in the KW area?
      Yes I totally agree! I’m normally not someone who gets tempted by things like this, but I couldn’t help but buy a couple things πŸ™‚ It’s always better to buy local, though!

      1. I was too young to go by myself if there had been and my parents likely were too busy working to take me, but honestly I can’t remember.

        There were farmer’s markets, of course, but I would not have been interested at the age of 8-10. I’ve always been a bookworm. πŸ™‚
