Meet Etsy Artisans At Toronto Marketplace
Last weekend, Toronto Etsy Street Team held their annual
Springtime Marketplace. Since the marketplace was
so close to my home, I dropped by to see what was new
and wonderful coming from Etsy Toronto artisans.
It's always fun to go to a craft market.
Here's a few of the interesting products that are
being created for Etsy followers.
Art That Moves
These are works from Art That Moves and
Christine Pensa. Christine was a political assistant to both
a federal and provincial cabinet minister. She took an art course
and found her passion was art, not politics. Her art centers around
the evolution of spirituality, her love of yoga and a woman's
diverse manifestation of beauty.
Christine creates original art and artful textiles.
I loved the little girl pillows.
Here is where to see more of Christine's creations.
Green Bean is a one of a kind paper goods studio with
lovely products designed by Aparna Varma. Aparna
is a freelance illustrator and designer. She has lived in
India, Africa and now Canada and those experiences
has given her many inspirations for her designs.

Lauralee Love is the owner and designer of Starlette 55.
Lauralee spent numerous years in the Toronto music scene
where she created a very glamorous and sophisticated style
as her persona. She designed and altered her own clothing
for years and decided to incorporate her love of glamour
into a new product.
Lauralee is a big fan of Audrey Hepburn and her
likeness has been transferred to totes and bags for
all you Hepburn fans.

Yvonne specializes in creating enamel jewellery,
bowls and art pieces. She graduated from the Jewellery
