The summer heat has been kicking my butt so I’m slow on putting this out there – there’s a sale in my shop and my whole team from today Friday July 9 through Sunday July 11. I’ve got 20% off discounts running in both of my shops:

All of the events I registered for this year were cancelled. I agree with that – none of us wants to become ill or make others ill – but it makes 2020 a miserable little year for shows.
It isn’t surprising then that all sorts of groups are putting on virtual tradeshows. These vary in approaches and, being a good little web based business, I’ve been cautious about signing up. I finally decided to give the Etsy Canada branded ones a shot. I’m missing my buds and these should be people who are fairly experienced with online sales.
My Etsy Saskatchewan group one runs November 7 & 8 and then one I’m joining On the Spot Pop Up (Edmonton) Etsy for is the weekend after, November 14 & 15. Most of us will be running sales of some sort and offering free local delivery or pickup.

TL; DR: there’s some good sales coming up in November in my Etsy shop!
