Etsy event in Niagara Falls this weekend

More than 30 Canadian cities, including Niagara Falls, will host a one-day marketplace celebrating the Etsy community on Saturday.

Local Etsy sellers will showcase their handmade and vintage wares at Heartland Forest from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. as part of Etsy: Made in Canada.

Launched in 2005, Etsy is an online marketplace for handmade items.

The Niagara marketplace will include original artwork, furniture, decor and more from 40 Niagara artisans, said event co-ordinator Erin Snow. This is the first time Niagara Falls has hosted a Made in Canada event.

"We can't wait to demonstrate what a passionate group of artisans live right here in Niagara, so make sure you come by to see us in action," said Snow, who offers aromatherapy products and essential oils through her Etsy store Chasing Clouds.

Several food trucks will be at Heartland Forest for the event as will local wineries and breweries.

Snow said Heartland Forest was a perfect fit for Etsy.

"One of the things that is important to me is working with non-profit organizations. And Heartland Forest, to some, is an unknown gem. I want to bring awareness to them as well."
