Poster Sketch: Team Oh Canada

Canada is an interesting place. It’s an enormous country, in terms of land mass, but the habitable terrain is limited. Compared to countries of similar size, our population is tiny. When Canadians travel abroad, people say the most curious things to us. When we visit the United States, we dread the inevitable “Do you know Bob Smith from Toronto?”. When we visit Europe, people are shocked that we’ve never been to cities on the other side of our own country.

Although we are few, we aren’t exactly as connected as people may think we are. And that’s why it’s so great to be able to interact with other Canadians over the internet. Recently, a new Etsy Team was formed that is open to Canadian sellers of all kinds - giving us all a chance to meet each other, offer support, and share our experiences.

The Oh Canada Team is still in it’s developing stages, but there are already a great deal of unique and interesting sellers in the group. This week’s poster sketch features just a handful of the amazing bead and jewelry designs from team members.

You can see even more great designs by adding the tag “OhCanadaTeam” to your searches on
