How to Find Etsy Shops in Canada

How to Find the Best of Canada's Etsy Shops

There are tons of great Canadian Etsy shops and you can find them in several ways. Doing a search may be a bit strange---if you have your local preferences on. For instance, if you live in the States, or even in Canada searching for vintage will usually bring your local preferences up first (You can see this search in the left hand size of your screen, refer to image #1 above and it normally auto populates and defaults to your local area.) Meaning if you live in Surrey, Canada,  you may not see Montreal's shops right away. Or if you live in York, Pennsylvania USA you will see your local shops first, and not even realizing you are missing out on other searches all over the place. This all depends on how your searches are set up and you will want to broaden the search you can uncheck your local location and type in "Canada" to get all the great Etsy shops and items (#1).  Then verify this by making sure the top of your screen has "Items in Canada" (#2 above).  This process will then allow you to check off vintage, handmade, or supplies.  You can apply this same prinicpal to whatever country it is you wish to shop.

Or, you can just go into Etsy's Canada teams and see what's shaking.
