T.E.S.T. Toronto Etsy Street Team Whos in the OOAK Spring show Etsy Section

Who can join?

T.E.S.T. Toronto Etsy Street Team is a moderated team with the following requirements:

This street team is for all Etsy sellers in TORONTO!

Please note: Our team is getting very large, and all work is done on a volunteer basis. Please be patient - it may take a while to respond to requests, though we truly appreciate your interest!

(Sellers who live beyond the boundaries of Toronto should check out some of the other great Ontario teams instead. There are teams for everyone. Find the right team for you!

If you have just opened an empty shop, please come back once you've listed an item.

We accept applicants who are in Toronto, have items listed, and whose items are in line with Etsy TOUs)


Right now we have 3 goals:

Support + Socializing + Sales


A group like ours needs two kinds of communication system: an external one to promote ourselves and have a public image and an internal one for decision-making, communication and planning. Please check out all the links to find us elsewhere on the internet.

What you can do right now

1- Join all the online here, and at the other links

2- Check out our team members and add their Twitter, Facebook, etc to your online stuff. Link to them whenever you can.

3- Heart and Cart the other Team members. Check out their shops, heart some items. Buy or trade stuff if you can. A list of the team shops appears here.

4- Recruit!!! Let other Toronto crafters know we are organizing our damn selves. Get people to join Etsy. Get Etsy members to join us. Get your fans to become our fans.

Things to think about

Chat! The forums, facebook pages and twitter are a great way to get to know your team. Please participate - it's a great way to have a say in the team and meet other Toronto Etsians.

Meet! We have had some social events and sales and plan more in the future.

Blog: We have a team blog: http://torontoetsystreetteam.blogspot.com/

If you let us know about Toronto art/craft/vintage sales and other events we are happy to promote! Tell us about your shows! Please consider contributing to the blog, and volunteering to be interviewed. It's a great way to get word out about your shop.

Networking! If you have any other networking ideas, let us know – or better yet just do it!

If ever there ends up being conflict or wonky-ness in the group, we will use our goals to guide our actions.

Nice Mirit and Ele! So how is the making of new art going? I've been trying to get in order all my display stuff so I can just get that out of the way and just work on my art.

Oh I wanted to ask have you guys mailed off your items to the OOAK for the photo shoot? I just did that this morning. I was so worried that it wouldn't get there on time so I did fast shipping so it should get there my tomorrow afternoon.

You can also drop things off at their office, it's right at the summerhill station. I did that and it was super quick and easy. Have you guys started your online profile? I had been told it's good to get it all up asap as press (and shopper of coarse!) do go through it pretty early, at least for the xmas show. I don't think the spring site is live yet, but you can log in and start setting it up.
