    Schools out, Website Launched, Social Media Tackled, 2 Markets, Buy Canadian Day, and Canada Day!

    It has been a crazy few weeks here working towards, well everthing!  The end of the school year, our new website launch (hope you are liking it so far), two new social media channels (twitter & Facebook), Craftfest, Canada Day and the Etsy Canada 150+ Market. And don't forget the great Buy Canadian Day initiative happening this Sunday, June 25th.  Needless to say the Mississippi North team has been on a productive streak lately.  Just take a peek at Sarah’s Instagram feed – she is on a creative high and we’re even planning a new collaboration project coming soon!

    Hard work pays off and we’ve received nothing but love from everyone.  We are all really happy to get the online shopping experience out there for you and don’t you worry we will definitely be working to continue to grow and improve things.  As a thank you to everyone and in the spirit of celebrating all things Canadian we are doing our part to participate in the Shop Canadian event happening this Sunday in Ottawa.  Mississippi North doesn’t have a storefront or a studio space (yet!!!) so we are doing things all online.  This Sunday only use the code SHOPCA when shopping at mississippinorth.ca and receive a 13% off.  Yay for happy shopping!

     

    We are super thankful for all your support and can’t wait to keep growing!  Now back to work prepping for all the amazing Canada Day things to come!

    Celebrating Canada: Etsy Canada 150 Market

    Celebrating Canada: Etsy Canada 150 Market

    I can’t believe that in only a few weeks we will be celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday.  A definite milestone.  So much can happen in 150 years, but one thing that has really stayed the same is the beauty found all around us in the Canadian wilderness.  You don’t have to be in the wilds of the Rockies to see just how amazing nature is, take a peek in your own backyard.  You will undoubtedly find a very curious squirrel, a mischievous racoon and if you’re lucky a grey jay might even pay you a visit.  There is so much to see if we only take a moment to look. 

    The Canadian wilderness, whether out in the forests or within our own backyards, is what inspired the beginnings of Mississippi North.  To honour this inspiration Mississippi North will showcase all our prints at the Etsy Canada 150 Market in Almonte on Canada Day.  So, if you want to check out all the amazing little Canadian critters or take a peak at some original art still in search of that perfect home come and visit!

    Oh, did we mention that Sarah will be doing LIVE PAINTING!  That’s right!  You too can come and be creative by helping Sarah prep the canvas with some colourful spray paint.  Then stay and watch as she paints one of Canada’s most iconic animals LIVE! Can you guess which one we’re talking about?

     

    See you all there!

    July 1st / 10am to 2pm
    Public Outdoor Lot . 37 Mill Street, Downtown Almonte
    Approximately 60 local area Etsy Sellers + a Cocktail Garden!
    FREE ADMISSION as part of Almonte’s Canada Day festivities. Live music, Vintage Car Show, Ice Cream, BBQ, family friendly activities all day long.

    Craftfest: Mother Nature Listened

    Craftfest: Mother Nature Listened

    The entire week prior to Craftfest we were watching the weather through several weather apps.  Paranoid outdoor market people can’t just rely on one you know.  Luckily the weather held out and the winds were kind to us as we set up our booth at Craftfest this past weekend.  The venue is really unique and it is a fantastic initiative showcasing so many great Canadian artists and makers.  The pop-up shop is still going strong so definitely stop by Zibi and take a peek, or visit the weekend Craftfest markets.

    Thank you so much to everyone who came this past Saturday.  Loved meeting you all in person and getting a chance to share our love of art with you.  Big thank you to the organizers and helpers.  Job well done!  Here’s to much more to come!

    Summer craft show season has begun!  This year is even more epic with Canada’s 150 celebrations.  To start off Mississippi North is taking part in Ottawa’s Craft Fest.  From June 11th to the 26th you can visit the Pop-up Shop in an historic brick building at Zibi (6 Booth Street, Ottawa).  We’re going to be in some pretty good company with over 100 Canadian brands represented: https://craft-fest.ca/pages/popup-shop

    If you’re looking for a special trip then check out the weekend markets: https://craft-fest.ca/pages/weekend-markets.  Each weekend (June 17th&18th, 25th&26th) vendors will get a chance to showcase their larger collections.  Mississippi North will be there on June 17th, so save the date and come take a look at all of the new paintings and classic charcoal favourites.  Don’t miss your chance to meet the artist and take home some beautiful Canadian art.
