Etsy Pop-Up at west elm Instagram-Style


It was a great weekend here in Vancouver and especially at the Etsy Pop-Up at west elm on Saturday!  Here's a few pictures (instagram style) of the event, which was like one big party, really. I want to personally thank all of you who stopped by, it was amazing to catch up with so many of you and meet others from the online world! If you can imagine, heaps of delicious cupcakes and s'mores (with homemade marshmallows) served by Rosie of Butter Baked Goods, incredible west elm hosts (Andrea and Ella who flew in from Brooklyn and Joshua here in Vancouver), some amazing tunes from DJ Trike, some crazy good cocktails using bittered sling extracts from Kale & Nori (seriously refreshing), and a heap of amazing handmade goods!  Check them out!
